HP datacentre, Sydney
HP's latest datacentre is built on 13.4ha of land out in Western Sydney. Currently under construction, it has been designed from the ground up, in the form of three separate shells that are able to operate independently of each other.
Each cell provides a space of 2000m2 for racks in a hot-aisle configuration, and an additional 500m2 of raised floor space.
The majority of racks in the first cell run on a concrete slab (pictured). Hot air is exhausted out, into the aisles.
