HELHa attended to the IT infrastructure Datacenters 2019 in Afligem, an great occasion to create contacts with the datacenter industry, to discover new technologies in this area. For exemple, trainers discuss with Out of Use, a company, whose business body is the destruction of servers and their recycling.
About ten people from Google are training the laboratories of the CeREF Technique building. A training course created especially for them covers the operating principles of cooling systems used in data centers.
We present cooling equipements used in datacenters to remove heat from the hot air in the computer room and rejected to the atmosfer. We propose to do experiments on real sized devices : heat exchangers, refrigeration cycles and cooling towers. From measurement of temperature, pressure and flow rate, we try to identify the performances and the possible sources of trouble shootings.
This training is integrated in a 3-days training of Google team. Their profils come from electronic team from Finland, Irland, Holland and Belgium.
The HELHa has developed the Data Center program in partnership with international academic institutes and industry providers including Google, Facebook and Microsoft in order to meet the growing need for upskilling of maintenantce staff in the industry.
The purpose of this new program is to provide the Data Center industry with staff who are qualified to provide the proficient and in-depth skills necessary for the technical management and operation of data center facilities.
