Overview

top

The LG CNS Gasan Data Center uses environmentally friendly green IT concepts to provide custom tailored services. The Center is a state of the art facility that meets the most advanced global standards by providing a complete infrastructure for customers.
By using green IDC cooling methods and providing a diversified coolant backup system, the Center can maintain individual temperature and humidity settings for each area. By using outside air for cooling, power costs are reduced, and centralized cooling methods ensure optimum cooling efficiency.

Cooling

top

A water–cooled air conditioning system designed for energy efficiency has been installed‚ and constant and stable air conditioning is provided through thermo–hygrostats‚ cooling towers‚ redundant main conduits‚ and backup systems

Cooling systems

Cooling systems img

  • Main supply : Cooling tower
  • Backup supply : Emergency distributed cooling source in 8 areas for a distributed vertical conduit system
  • Redundant coolant circulation pump and coolant supply conduits
  • Efficient management of the fan inverter control
Isothermal-humidity system

Isothermal-humidity system img

  • Some of the thermo-hygrostats installed in the computer rooms are designed to admit outdoor air during winter, reducing power consumption for cooling and realizing a green data center.
    • Format : Water–cooled
    • Humidification : Separate humidifiers
    • Backup thermo–hygrostats
Central air
  • Cool and hot zones are separately designated‚ and separate partitions are installed in cool zones to block flow of cool air. This centralized cooling design promotes power saving.
    • Servers separated for each customer(separate cool & hot zones)
    • Grill vents are arranged in cool zones for air conditioning
    • Separate partitions are installed for containment of cool airflow
    • Temperature sensors are installed in cool zones for cooling facilities
