75 total CRAC units. Some units are connected to dry coolers and others to evaporative cooling towers. Half of the CRAC units are switch ducted to use outside air when the temperature falls below a certain threshold to improve the overall data center PUE.
The server rooms are protected from fire by a suppression gas, HCFC-22 and CHCIF2. The gas is stored in pressurized cylinders in locked fire system rooms on each data center floor. The fire suppression gas is delivered overhead in the data center areas and discharged through special system of nozzles.

The facility uses card readers to control for access at various checkpoints throughout the building. Additionally, all visitors are manually screened and checked in at the lobby entry by security guards. The entire building is monitored by on-site staff through an array of CCTV deployment.
