Datacentre hall in construction
According to Boyd, Rackspace plans to tweak its cooling approaches for the third data hall, which is in construction at the moment and due to open in August 2011.
The new hall will aim to use free-air cooling from the outside. It will also run power via bus bars attached to overhead metal bars (pictured, top left). The company is considering enclosing the hot aisles of the servers with a plenum so that it has a tighter level of control over how much and where the hot air can mix with the cold.
