CELESTE ENIA Architects and sign a joint patent for a new generation data center consumes less energy. The first prototype operated by CELESTE will emerge in Marne-La-Vallée in June 2011.

ISP for businesses, CELESTE has partnered with ENIA Architects to develop its new concept of data center. The combination of the two players has led to a patent and the project of a data center in Champs-sur-Marne, at the center of future cluster Eastern Ile-de-France.

CELESTE and its agency knew created the event with this project, innovative both technically and architecturally. Indeed, the market for data centers proves unsuited to age and ecological constraints in terms of power consumption of air conditioning for cooling computer rooms. In addition, the explosion of accommodation and offers virtualized applications implies a lack of availability including Ile-de-France.

The main innovation of this project is based on the vertical building construction. The data center will operate in total « free-cooling » with the use of outside air to cool server rooms. These built on five levels will benefit from a natural draught and an optimization of the aeraulic yields effect.

The gain in total power consumption is estimated at around 35 %, a saving of about 6 GWh per year compared to a traditional data-center. This saving represents the annual consumption of a classical building offices 150 000 m² and limits the release of CO2 into the atmosphere 540 tonnes.

In addition to energy savings, this vertical arrangement allows an optimized organization of data center needs and limitations of floor. This feature makes thus possible implantation in urban areas. The coup, the unit cost to the kVA of Bay installed in this type of installation is divided in half.

Designed to accommodate the headquarters and data center CELESTE, draft is based on a total surface of 1800 m2. Located on street, within the Cité Descartes Champs-sur-Marne, office building will continue in two computer towers positioned at the rear of the plot in a coherent Figure.
