Hot-aisle containment system (HACS) deployed with in-row cooling
Matrix 4 is based on the APC InfraStruxure – an innovative, industry-leading solution for data center infrastructure with unrivalled scalability, reliability and the highest quality as well as power supply allocation per rack that by far exceeds that of competing solutions.
Matrix 4 is linked to numerous major datacenters in Amsterdam Science Park as well as to our facilities at Matrix 3 and the K1 (Kermia 1 – Limassol, Cyprus), enabling them to serve as disaster recovery sites for the facility.
The industry accepted indicator of data center efficiency is PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness). This indicator provides an excellent representation of the efficiency of each data center’s cooling solution as well as electrical systems and infrastructure. The approximate industry average is a PUE of 2.5 with a widespread effort among providers to reduce this figure to 1.3. The Matrix 4 datacenter is designed with the latest in power-efficient technologies to target a PUE ratio of as low as 1.08 depending on load and various environmental conditions.
The high level of performance is achieved by the use of a cooling system solution with a ‘free-cooling’ feature. This allows us to minimize cooling expenses as well as to contribute to a better overall efficiency of the datacenter given climactic conditions in Amsterdam, with an average annual high of 12.8 and low of 7.5 degrees centigrade.
Our Matrix 4 data center has a dedicated power substation with a 2MW capacity, connected to the power supply grid of Amsterdam Science Park. This ensures a fully redundant supply of electricity for the facility.
