Continuum Data Centers, a multi-tenant data center operator in the western Chicago suburbs, with solutions ranging from colocation to private cages, private suites and secured data halls, has announced its partnership with cooling manufacturer STULZ Air Technology Systems, located in Frederick, Maryland, to provide in-row cooling solutions for their high density data centers.
Continuum Data Centers’ enterprise-grade cooling capabilities in its chilled water plant in West Chicago can accommodate “extremely” high density configurations across the data center floor. The utilization of STULZ IRCs gives CONTINUUM the capability to deliver on customer requirements in excess of 1,000 watts per foot.
“Continuum’s goal was a Tier III design,” said STULZ Applications Engineering Manager, Dave Meadows. “By utilizing our CyberRow CRS-180 units which are placed in between the server racks, they were able to achieve their goals while eliminating the need for a costly raised floor. By utilizing the STULZ designed diverter plates at the front of these CRAH units, we were able to provide a uniform laminar curtain of air across the racks where they are needed, rather than just blowing cool air into the whitespace.”
Continuum Data Centers operates an 80,000 square foot, purpose-built, Tier III+ facility in West Chicago, Illinois.
“Ultimately, this partnership is about delivering value to our customers,” said Continuum Data Centers’ CEO, Eli Scher. “Our strength in dense cooling solutions is ideal for our customers running parallel computing applications, including algorithmic trading strategies and advanced database management. We look forward to continuing to grow with STULZ as our cooling solutions partner.”
STULZ Air Technology Systems, Inc. is responsible for product development, manufacturing, and distribution for the North American arm of the international STULZ Group.
