Upgrade to Deliver Annual Savings of Nearly Eight Million Kilowatt-Hours
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 22, 2022-- CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (“American Tower”), announced it will now serve customers in its Boston data center facility with a highly energy-efficient cooling system that will save an estimated eight million kilowatt-hours each year. The equipment upgrade is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to deploy efficient power and cooling best practices throughout its portfolio of data centers.
CoreSite’s Boston data center, or BO1, which borders Cambridge and Boston’s central business district, has a new chiller plant consisting of three chillers with magnetically levitated centrifugal compressors where each lineup functions independently. The upgraded chiller plant also includes a series-integrated plate heat exchanger for partial to full economization. This more efficient cooling system improves the site power usage effectiveness (PUE), decreasing the building energy consumed relative to CoreSite’s customers’ IT power use.
“As a multitenant colocation provider, we deliver cooling based on the varying power densities customers need,” said Brian Warren, CoreSite’s Senior Vice President of Development and Product Engineering. “Regardless of the density of the compute environments, this new plant allows us to design specific solutions to meet each of our customer’s unique requirements. Just like this upgrade to the cooling system in our Boston market, we continually look for opportunities throughout our data center portfolio to implement efficiency practices as we continue on our sustainability journey.”
CoreSite monitors air flow around each of its facilities and determines how best to leverage outside air when possible to more efficiently cool its facilities. In Boston and other campuses, CoreSite is able to use outside air for free cooling up to 60% of the time.
With more than 253,000 square feet of space, CoreSite’s Boston data center is positioned to provide low-latency connectivity to a diverse customer base including financial, technological and educational enterprises. As one of the most interconnected buildings in New England, the Boston data center offers native cloud onramps to AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute. The CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange® is also available at BO1, along with 20+ cloud offerings and 35+ networks. BO1 is strategically located close to CoreSite's network-dense, cloud-enabled data center campus in New York, including the Manhattan (NY1) and Secaucus, New Jersey (NY2) data centers.
