COOLING

Keep hot and cold air separated
ROOT utilizes hot aisle containment in conjunction with the traditional hot aisle/cold aisle approach. This design prevents hot and cold air from mixing, which increases cooling efficiencies and allows for high density deployments – as high as 40kW/rack. As a result, ROOT is able to achieve an average PUE of 1.15.

Free-cooling efficiencies
ROOT employs an energy-efficient air-to-air exchange and waterless cooling technology that leverages the cold Montreal climate to achieve free cooling over 90 per cent of the year. ROOT’s facilities are designed to achieve an average annual PUE of 1.15, with a PUE minimum as low as 1.12 during the winter months.
