A Closer Look at Power Loft’s Design

Add Your Comments

Power Loft @ Innovation is a 225,000 square foot data center that just opened in Prince William County, Virginia. The facility was built with a two-floor design that physically separates the server rooms from the power and cooling infrastructure, allowing clients to run power densities of up to 300 watts a square foot in the equipment space. In this video from last week’s opening, Michael Armm from Power Loft and Jason Chartrand from T5 Partners provided an overview of the innovative two-story design. This video runs about 6 minutes, 30 seconds. NOTE: We’re having some trouble with YouTube … if you get a message that the video is private, please try again in a few minutes.
