Chiller Rental Services

Phew. A long morning bashing out the details for the rental agreements for our chillers.

We are still considering two different companies but today I was meeting Chiller Rental Services

They seem a good bunch of guys and have an excellent understanding of the concept of high availability with nothing less than N+1 being spoken of.

We are also trying to do our bit for the environment and reduce our carbon footprint by using "Freecool" units which basically use the natural temperature of the surrounding air to cool the water if the temperature outside is lower than inside. Looking at the average temperature graphs, this does not look to be too hard in Belfast! No offence folks, but if we can cool your servers for minimal electric and save the environment too, then it all can't be bad.
