Bytemark Hosting provides a comprehensive managed hosting service to a portfolio of prestigious clients including the Cabinet Office, Carling.com and Médecins sans Frontières. Supplementing its existing network spread over Manchester and London, Bytemark built a new 250 square metre £650,000 data centre facility within the warehouse space of its new property in York.
Working in conjunction with Sudlows, Airedale’s SmartCool™ DX PAC units were specially adapted to provide direct fresh air free cooling for up to 90% of the year and deliver N+1 redundancy. A fresh air mixing box was also specially designed for the project.
2 x 90kW Airedale SmartCool™ DX precision air conditioning (PAC) units (data centre) provide fresh air free cooling for up to 90% of the year and excellent part-load performance from staged cooling
2 x 11kW Airedale EasiCool™ PAC units (UPS room) provide stable support where load conditions are typically fluctuating
ACIS™ Building Management System (BMS) provides remote monitoring of cooling and other building services from an easy-touse graphical environment
Airedale commissioning and on-going preventative maintenance, spares & service
“Airedale’s innovative and integrated solution means we can make the most of the fresh air cooling opportunities in our York location. This means we can achieve a much more efficient data centre and reduce our costs, as well as the impact on the environment”
