(The Hosting News) – In 2012, 100TB.com hit the headlines by announcing a series of industry-leading data center improvements. Two years later, the company with the iconic flame is still adding fuel to its fire with impressive infrastructure and hardware upgrades.
In fact, since 100TB.com’s inception in 2010, more than five million dollars has been spent on data center infrastructure and network architecture by 100TB.com.
“We’re very pleased with the progress and investment we’ve been able to make with both our London and Salt Lake data centers,” said Thomas Hancock, the general manager of 100TB.com. “We do it to ensure our clients are getting the best solution out there, which enables them to grow alongside us.”
In their London data center, 100TB.com’s infrastructure engineers went green by revolutionizing the traditional data center cooling system and building, what they called, “something beautifully efficient.”
“We have designed and implemented a supplementary free cooling system to run alongside the conventional system that most data centers would use to cool their servers, which saves a lot of energy,” said James, the director of infrastructure for 100TB.com.
The result was cutting electricity consumption by more than a quarter and boosting the data center’s power usage efficiency (PUE) rating well above standard marks making it one of the industry leaders. Naturally, 100TB.com’s competitors are also beginning to go green, green with envy.
It’s more efficient in other areas, too. A thorough productivity audit carried out over the course of two years brought in industry best technology including loads of new server and networking hardware.
Since the brand was set up, 100TB.com’s hardware has scaled from campfire to bonfire. The London data center, alone, is now almost five times bigger, physically, than it was in the beginning.
Speaking of hardware upgrades, James’ eyes look upward and glaze over when he thinks of both their Salt Lake City and London data centers future-proofed hardware.
“Future expansion is going to be beautiful,” said James.
In Utah, upgrades have been carried out using Cisco’s top-end networking hardware offering redundancy and massive throughput capability; capabilities far above today’s needs making it ready for even more expansion in the future.
