The Keepers of the Cool
As it turns out, “Data Temp” Series floor-mounted CRAC equipment, installed in 1987, has been cooling the data center servers and related equipment pretty much without a hiccup for an entire 30 year time period. It also appears that two key members of the H&S Resources team – charged with maintaining and upgrading virtually all aspects of the building – have both worked with the building’s installed Data Aire equipment since the mid 1990s. Clearly they were the perfect people to talk to.
Fortunately, those individuals were available as well as some of the current tenants from the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, also referred to as the OSM.
