Technology

Green Earth Data uses a new type of natural free cooling technology, jointly developed with AST Global in Spain. The lower container holds the racks while the cooling units are housed in the upper space. Outside air is pulled into the cooling unit which cools the air inside a closed air circulation system. In this way, no outside air comes into direct contact with the computer equipment inside the container.

The free cooling facilities within each container are designed to take into account the total load for all equipment currently hosted and future needs. The technology is a natural free cooling which gives the opportunity to run the data center at very low PUE levels.

Green Earth Data’s center is a Tier3 facility, as specified by the Uptime Institute, with dual connections to Iceland’s power grid. Power enters the building from two different locations, passes through redundant UPS backup batteries and N+1 diesel backup generators. The power feed is 400-800A to each POD and 16/32/64A to each rack. Power is monitored to the individual container and individual racks on request. The benefit of this enterprise class UPS system is its mean time to restore (MTTR) which enables the operations team to replace individual modules with onsite spares. The N+ 1 system also combines “hot spares” so in the event of failure the modular system will automatically engage its redundant spare.

Cooling

All network connections are double to each POD and house-in-house environment. Connections to the Internet are via multiple fiber cables provided by Mila and FarIce. Bandwidth can be provided by multiple service providers and an Internet peering service in London and Copenhagen.  Green Earth Data can provide Internet connections to its customers up to 10Gbps.

Our Data Center is ISO27001 certified.
