Temperature and humidity are precisely regulated, year-round, to ensure optimal equipment reliability. Each cooling unit contains independent compressors and cooling loops to further enhance fault tolerance and reliability. Air filtration systems actively remove foreign particles from circulation and cycle the entire data center air supply in just a matter of minutes.
