Infrastructure

To ensure the continuity of your IT infrastructure is guaranteed, our datacenter in Waalwijk is configured for full redundancy.

All our internet connections, the power supply, cooling, fire prevention measures and our monitoring systems are designed to be fully redundant through duplication. The datacenter is fully configured for high density hosting and housing solutions.

Cooling

Up to an outside temperature of approx. 14° Celsius, Dataplace Brabant uses outside air for all its cooling. This is known as indirect free cooling with dry coolers. This method of cooling is very energy-efficient and hence environmentally friendly. When the outside air is warmer, the system switches over to mixed operation, which is a combination of free cooling and conventional cooling using a refrigerant. If the outside air temperature reaches approx. 25° Celsius, the datacenter is cooled entirely by conventional cooling. In both cases the air humidity is kept at a constant 40%-60%. All the main components of the cooling system also are configured for full redundancy, so that one chiller, one circulation pump and two downflow units can always fail or undergo maintenance without this posing a risk for the temperature.
