French telecom operator Netiwan has been appointed by data centre operator Jerlaure to design and build a data centre which will be cooled directly from the sun’s heat.


The new data centre patented by Jerlaure and called SYNEcTHIK DC will be Tier 3 classified, highly secure, and extremely energy efficient – cooling the centre without any power consumption. Jerlaure also owns a worldwide exclusive distribution agreement for the technology.


According to Jerlaure, this performance is made possible by combining several technological innovations including: use of “total indirect free cooling” as a cooling solution (where outdoor air is used); an innovative aeraulic concept, which overcomes the need for duct diffusers, raised floors and false ceilings; and an electrical architecture allowing to operate on efficient performance ranges.


Intended to be scalable to match the needs of the local economy, the data centre, with an IT surface of 535m² will have a hosting capacity of a maximum of 80 racks, divided between colocation services and dedicated suites.


An additional, land reservation will permit construction of a second building to extend the data centre’s capacity up to a maximum of 120 racks.


Power consumption of the data centre will follow the ramp-up of the load from 100kW IT until 600kW IT, offering an average density of 5kW per rack for Jerlaure’s clients. The operator said the centre is designed to be suitable for a wide range of clients including the most critical ones such as healthcare hosting data or bank data clients (ready for HDS and PCI/DSS certifications).

Construction of the new data centre is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2018.
