This should be something many of you have never seen before. Do you know what is this? This is a Data Centre that is still empty.
Still can't figure out what that is? This data centre is under going the air-conditioning testing. What you see are heating elements that simulate the heat that huge server will generate in the Data Center. Usually a hundreds or thousands of servers will be mounted on racks. The heat they generate is a lot! I stood behind them before.
The air-conditioning has to be strong enough to cool down the data centre. This is so that the machines can operate. In the test above, one heating element is put on top of the many aircon vents. The vents are on the raised platform. The cool air will be pumped from the bottom and all the hot air will rise, and be extracted out of the room.
The above is just one of the thousands of Data Center in Singapore or one of the millions of Data Centers in the world.
Yes, the blogger account that most Daily City Photo bloggers used are housed in a similar kind of data center.
