In September, the company "Yandex" has launched in a Moscow Ivanteevka energy-efficient data center, first of its kind in Russia and the CIS. It uses a cooling technology, which can significantly save energy.

The air is cooled by the outside air, which is important for the Moscow region, where most of the year is cold. Additional cooling equipment is turned on only when the outdoor temperature rises above +22 ° C. And in full force, it starts from +31 ° C. As a result, the new data center, "Yandex" requires half the energy than usual. On the one hand allows you to save, and on the other — it is beautiful to look to foreign shareholders, who still pay attention to such details.

"Experimenting with various technologies cooling (free cooling) we started at the end of 2009. The main objective was to maximize the temperature threshold. As a result, it was able to raise from +13 ° C to +22 ° C, — Says Gennady Vahutinsky, Director of Construction Engineering Systems Yandex. — From the use of the new data center cooling cost benefit not only the company, but also the environment — less energy means less natural resources for its production.
