Telios was the Engineer of Record for a 10MW High Performance Computing Expansion for a Confidential Client. The expansion at the existing campus data center was challenging due to the increased power and cooling requirements. The original infrastructure serving the white space was designed for colocation, with a power density of 225w/sf. The high-performance computing required 1000 watts/sf. The HPC was designed for 9.0MW of total power with 1.5MW of air-cooled storage and networking space. Due to space constraints, indoor unit substations were not possible for the HPC service, requiring the project team to design and coordinate a (3) utility risers up the exterior of the building to the third floor.In addition to design of the building’s infrastructure, Telios completed CFD modeling and studies of the campus medium voltage power and chiller plant loops to ensure the campus could provide the power of cooling necessary for the HPC without sacrificing other buildings on the campus during peak demands. Water cooled load banks were utilized to test the facility infrastructure prior to the computer installation. The project was successfully turned over at the end of 2018.
