New Addition to our Datacenter
In our never ending quest to continually enhance and protect the environment for our cloud, colocation and dedicated server customers, we have added an additional 20 tons of cooling bringing our total cooling capacity to 60 tons or 720,000 BTU’s per hour. One kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity contains 3,412 BTU.
So why do they call it a ton of cooling? We are glad you asked… A ton is the measurement of cooling capacity of an AC unit. One ton is equal to the amount of heat required (288,000 Btu) to melt one ton of ice in a 24-hour period. This is a leftover measurement from the days when ice was the key component to cooling and refrigeration.
