June 11, 2013: Coolerado Saves AISO.net 80 Percent on Cooling

Air Conditioning Units Utilize Indirect and Staged Evaporative Cooling

DENVER — Coolerado today announced that AISO.net (Affordable Internet Services Online), a Tier III data center, is saving 80 percent in energy costs — translating to $24,000 in annual savings — through the use of Coolerado air conditioning units.

AISO.net uses a number of green techniques such as solar panels to enable it to run at full capacity, including air conditioning, without plugging into the California power grid. Based on strategic virtualization and consolidation techniques, AISO.net said its physical footprint encompasses just one-fifth of the space of comparable data center providers, a comparison of 2,000 square feet versus 10,000 square feet.

Phil Nail, chief technology officer at AISO.net, said, “Coolerado air conditioners save us on energy costs and allow us to maximize our technology density while not compromising on performance for our customers. We’ve been able to expand within a much smaller footprint, because of virtualization and hospital grade equipment, which gives us greater capacity, greater speed, all in a much smaller footprint which also equates to less energy usage. Most companies expand their footprint as they grow, AISO.net’s philosophy is just the opposite; we reduce our footprint as we grow.”

“AISO.net has set the standard for green data centers; we are extremely pleased to be a part of their environmentally conscious efforts,” said Tom Teynor, chief executive officer at Coolerado.

AISO.net replaced their existing CRAC (computer room air conditioner) unit with three low-profile Coolerado C60 HMX (heat mass exchange) air conditioning units. The HMX conditions air using indirect and staged evaporative cooling. Indirect means that the moisture used to remove heat from the air never touches the product air that is eventually introduced into the cooled space (leaving the delivered air humidity-neutral, as compared to ambient conditions). Staged means that the air is cooled in 21 stages — as opposed to all at once — which enables Coolerado to deliver lower temperatures. The net result is a cooling product that provides conditioned, humidity-neutral air and consumes only enough energy to power a fan, says the company.
