Voonami Implements new Cooling System

Press Release

August 24, 2012

Taking advantage of Utah's unique environment, Voonami has implemented a cooling system that uses just 20 percent of the cooling energy of a typical data center. The low humidity in Utah and technology advancements combined to make the system efficient and scalable.

Using this advanced technology, reduces energy consumption by 80 percent and helps the environment by reducing green-house gas emissions by 922 thousand pounds of carbon dioxide per year, equivalent to removing 88 car(s) from the road or reforesting 98 acre(s) of trees.

According to Joe Loper, senior vice president of policy and research at Alliance to Save Energy, “Energy-intensive data centers, which run 24 hours, seven days a week, consume significant amounts of electricity – estimated 20 to 30 billion kilowatt hours annually, roughly equal to the electricity consumption of the entire state of Utah.” He continued, “Nationwide, data center electric bills are now roughly $2 to $3 billion every year and require roughly 30 power plants.”

Voonami’s West Valley Data Center is one of the most energy efficient data centers in the Region. “We value the environment we live in and we continue to spend our efforts in evolving technology and keeping the environment safe with energy efficient Data Centers.” said Ben Bush, president of Voonami.

Voonami's data center also offers a fully redundant N+1, secure environment, in which, Voonami customers can be certain their servers and equipment are always secure and running.

To schedule a tour of our West Valley City Data Center, please contact Voonami at 801.995.4000 or email us at info@voonami.com.
