Free cooling, which is the use of naturally cool air instead of mechanical refrigeration, can dramatically reduce the power needed for data center cooling. For colocation tenants, that means dramatically reduced costs.
But traditional free cooling systems aren’t practical for most colocation data centers. There are three primary reasons why:
So there are very few (if any) colocation providers leveraging free cooling at all – they still use the old chiller plant/forced air technology. Their customers, then, are trading energy efficiency and lower costs for location flexibility and reliability.
