CHPC Data Center Infrastructure
By marchamilton on Sep 11, 2009
CHPC's data center integrates three high efficiency cooling units which operate in an N+1 redundant fashion. The center can operate on a single cooling tower during most operational conditions, with the second cooling unit providing additional capacity for maximum operations or hot summer days. Meanwhile, the third unit provides redundancy should either of the primary units fail.
While most of Jülich's plumbing and water pumps were under their data center, CHPC was able to locate their's outside next to the cooling units.
And finally, to close of my blog series on CHPC, a look at Cape Town's Table Mountain, one of the many reasons why locals call Cape Town the most beautiful city in the world.
