Colocation and Legacy Data Center Owners and Operators

R4 Ventures LLC helps Data Center Owners and Operators to increase revenue and reduce the need for data center new build CAPEX or new facility commissioning  while lowering cooling system energy costs and lowering the data center’s PUE by applying a Real Time Data Center Cooling System (RTDCCS) solution to 10 to 30% of a legacy data center’s white space.

What can upgrading 20% of your Legacy Data Center to R4 Ventures LLCs Real Time Data Center Cooling System mean to your data center operation and bottom line?

  • Potential to increase your legacy data center density / capacity if you have available power.
  • If your legacy data center PUE is 1.5 before upgrade, your new PUE after upgrade could be lowered to 1.43
  • Because this sample data center is increasing capacity in the legacy data center by 80%, you have the potential to your Colocation Revenue by 80%
  • Helps your legacy data center to begin to address the new ASHRAE 90.4 standards.

 

Example of Increasing a Legacy Data Center (100 racks) Capacity by upgrading 20% of racks from 5 kw to 30 kW per rack

Legacy Data Center Capacity before Upgrade: (5 kW X 100 racks)                         500 kW
Legacy Data Center Capacity after Upgrade: ((5 kW X 80 racks) + (30 kW X 20 racks)                        900kW
Percent Increase in Data Center Capacity:                                 80%

 

Estimated Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratio (Assumes current legacy data center PUE of 1.5 on 5 kW racks and 1.15 on RTDCCS)

Total Legacy Data Center Power before Upgrade: 5 kW X 1.5 X 100 racks                                                                                             750 kW Total Legacy Data Center Power  

AfterUpgrade: (5 kW X 1.5 X 80 racks) + (30 kW X 1.15 X 20 racks)                                                                                                        1290 kW

PUE after Upgrade: (Total Power 1290 kW / IT Power 900 kW)                                                                                                             1.43 a 5% reduction in PUE

 

Potential Increase in Colocation Revenue without building or expanding existing Legacy Data Center (Assumes $250 / kW / Month )

Revenue of fully leasing Legacy Data Center before Upgrade:  (500 kW X $250 X 12 months)                                                      $1,500,000

Revenue of fully leasing Legacy Data Center after Upgrade:  (900 kW X $250 X 12 months)                                                         $2,700,000 an 80% increase in Revenue
