CoreSite Realty recently brought new data center space online in Santa Clara, Calif. The company has leased the first completed pod of 18,000 square feet of space at 2972 Stender, the second building in its Santa Clara campus, and plans to bring an additional 33,000 square feet online by the first quarter of 2012. The cooling system used by CoreSite leverages a built-in swamp cooler or Munter unit with air-side economization to extend "free cooling" using outside air. This three-minute video provides a time-lase view of the construction of 2972 Stender, starting with empty land and ending with the completed data center building.
Contractors for 2972 Stender included Critical Solutions Group, MATT Construction and Mitsubishi Electric. For more on CoreSite’s data center operations, see our CoreSite Channel. For additional video, check out our DCK video archive and the Data Center Videos channel on YouTube.
