DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CoreSite, a leading provider of hybrid IT solutions and a subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (“American Tower”), announced that it will now provide customers in its Boston data center an energy-efficient cooling system that will save approximately eight million kilowatt hours each year. The equipment upgrade is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to deploying efficient power and cooling best practices across its entire data center portfolio.
CoreSite’s Boston data center, or BO1, which borders Cambridge and Boston’s central business district, has a new cooling plant consisting of three chillers with magnetically levitated centrifugal compressors where each array operates independently. The improved cooling system also includes a plate heat exchanger integrated as standard for partial to total savings. This more efficient cooling system improves the site’s power utilization efficiency (PUE), reducing the building’s energy consumption relative to the IT energy consumption of CoreSite’s customers.
“As a multi-tenant colocation provider, we provide cooling based on the different power densities that customers need,” said Brian Warren, senior vice president of product development and engineering at CoreSite. “No matter how dense the compute environments, this new factory allows us to design specific solutions to meet each of our customers’ unique requirements. Much like this cooling system upgrade in our Boston market, we are continuously looking for opportunities across our data center portfolio to implement efficiency practices while continuing our journey towards sustainability. .
CoreSite monitors the airflow around each of its facilities and determines how best to take advantage of outside air when possible to more effectively cool its facilities. In Boston and other campuses, CoreSite can use outside air for free cooling up to 60% of the time.

As one of the most interconnected buildings in New England, the Boston data center offers cloud-native gateways to AWS Direct Connect and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute.
