This is a tricky question to answer because it depends on a great many variables:
Getting a handle on this information is important because overheated servers can be harmful to data. More importantly, unsafe working conditions might risk the wellbeing of the technicians who work on the servers.
Fortunately, Telx is here to help. We maintain our carrier-neutral data centers at or better than industry levels through under-the-floor forced air cooling to make sure cold air constantly flows in and hot air constantly flows out. We also offer market leading high density applications to solve the needs of our customers.
We take cooling seriously and treat it as its own facet of maintenance. For example, if you lease a private suite at one of our data centers, a “data center within a data center,” so to speak, we regulate the cooling and security of that suite separate from the rest of the data center.
Telx provides specific cooling at the data center based on a service level agreement with you, and cool on a watts-per-square-foot basis. We maintain our facilities 24/7 and back our cooling systems with diesel generators. Some of our data centers also contain features unique to them as well, such as chilled air pumps, so we can meet your needs no matter how specific they might be.
