Future Facilities Case Study – Using CFD Analysis
Kao Data: Using CFD Analysis to Design and Build the UK Innovation Corridor’s Home for HPC and AI

Read this case study from Future Facilities. It details how they worked with Kao Data to help make informed and data driven decisions around design, implementation and operations of data centre, Kao Data London One (KDL1).

Kao Data London One was the UK's first, 100% wholesale multi-tenant data centre to provide 100% free-cooling. Not only does this data centre have unique and high-performance demands, environmental sustainability is at the heart of its design.

Demanding Power & Cooling Requirements

With such demanding power and cooling requirements, energy efficiency and being kept as sustainable as possible are key. This was where Future Facilities were able to help. With CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations of the data centre's operating environments, they were able to compliment Kao Data's technical capabilities. They helped to manage risk and ensure industry-leading levels of efficiency, all before committing to the build phase of the project.

The Outcome

By using Future Facilities' CFD, Kao Data were able to create a digital twin of their data centre and evaluate the facility's performance under a number of various conditions.
