“Eighty percent airflow is an industry best,” said Duckett. “Typical airflow for doors available prior to CyrusOne’s solution deliver up to 76 percent airflow.”Aisle containment doors are another feature available to colocation customers at CyrusOne data center facilities. Designed to direct airflow such that cold air is sent where it is needed to cool equipment, and hot air is directed away, aisle containment doors further drive efficiency for the customer. Finally, CyrusOne offers cages designed with smaller, honeycomb-shaped openings, in comparison to the material traditionally used in the industry. The innovative design offers visibility, yet has the strength of a solid wall, and it prevents hot spots in adjacent areas from impacting the climate of the caged customer space. “It’s not rocket science here,” said Duckett. “We just took the time to figure out how to use racks and cabinets more efficiently. And we take the time to walk through with customers what configuration of our rack and cabinet offering will best serve their needs.” The proprietary rack and server solution that CyrusOne offers has shipping and receiving cost benefits as well. In the industry, customers shipping cabinets are charged based on the cabinet’s weight and volume. Typically, a fully constructed cabinet filled with only air costs more than CyrusOne’s racks and cabinets shipped flat on a pallet for assembly at the final destination. This approach to racks and cabinets also keeps down the cost and disposal of packing materials, which is beneficial from an environmental perspective. CyrusOne facilities accommodate the proprietary rack, cabinet and cage designs it offers customers, as well as any third party solution rack, cabinet and cage solution that a customer might prefer to install at the site.
