    Sovereign House - Floor 2 - Heat

    Hi,

    Anyone concurred about the heat of the Data floors at Sovereign House?

    Last night i went to both Sovereign House and Volta and what a massive diffreance between them both in regards to head!

    Sovereign House, seems really hot, more then i would like, yet Volta is nice and cool.

    What's the inlet temperature that your equipment is measuring at each site?

    What's the environmental SLA in your contract?

    This is at Sov House

    Surprised that Volta is at 20C and sov at 22C

    Just seems Soc is alot hotter.

    Is that SOV or Volta? 22 degrees seems perfectly reasonable.

    No the images only show Sov,

    So 22 at Sov and servers at Volta 20. Looking at Sov contract

    “Target Temperature Range” shall mean and refer to the average temperature of the Datacenter, measured below the raised floor therein, between 59 degrees Fahrenheit and 90 degrees Fahrenheit (equivalent to between 15C and 32 C).

    22 is absolutely fine. I'd be happy with anything up to about 24 degrees in regular, normal operation.

    I'm guessing you didn't read the contract before signing it? 32 degrees is an insane temperature!

    *DC Operator hat*

    Everyone who is sensible has generally been raising temperatures over the last 10 years or so. Gone are the days of equipment needing to be super cold at 18-20C and the massive inefficient use of energy. I see most facilities running at 24 3

    The latest ASHRAE standards "IT vendors recommend maintaining temperature of 70–75 F (21–24 C). The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) states that the recommended temperatures is between 68–77 F (20–25 C), with an allowable range spanning 59–90 F (15–32 C)."

    23 +/-5 is quite common in DC contracts now, although I'm not a fan of how hot they are getting in general, as it does impact "Moving parts" and reduces headroom/tollerance for actual faults

    I would be absolutely fine with 22 Degrees inlet. That's perfectly acceptable.

    In general temperature range and humidity/particulate count has a much greater impact on equipment reliability with any relatively modern main stream equipment than absolute temperature upto about 27C. I would FAR prefer a datafloor at 25C 0.5 or 1C with 40-50% RH and ISO 14644-8 than one with 17C 5C and 50-80% RH.

    Out of interest are you on the 3rd not 4th floor in Volta?

    We are on the 2nd floor of SOV, we have identical routers across the Docklands sites and SOV actually reports lower temperatures than Telehouse/Equinix sites... I can see what you are saying though as walking around it does feel warmer than the other sites we are in (particularly in the hot aisles) though not sure why this would be..
