RED MESA & RED SKY SUPERCOMPUTERS

Location: Albuquerque, NM

Size: Approximately 4,000 SF

Estimated Construction Cost: $1,900,000

Facts: B&P provided the mechanical, electrical and controls design to support the infrastructure requirements for the Red Sky and Red Mesa Supercomputer deployments. As of June 2011, Red Sky/Red Mesa was ranked the 16th fastest computer in the world by Top500.org. Red Sky/Red Mesa is Sandia's most eco-transparent (energy efficient) computer platform to date, utilizing a computer rack door mounted refrigerant cooling coil and water cooled refrigerant heat exchanger system tied into the building central chilled water loop. Airside cooling is based upon a linear flow sequence, where the same volume of air is used to sequentially cool the computer rows, entering the first row and leaving the last row at essentially neutral air. This cooling process reduced chiller plant consumption cooling by 37 percent, water consumption by 5.4 million gallons per year and chiller plant energy consumption by 77 percent. The Red Sky computer was installed in 2009 consisting of four rows of twelve racks, and Red Mesa expanded the system to six rows of twelve racks late 2009/2010.
