The Hong Kong Jockey Club is ranked the second largest IT user in Asia, on a typical racing day it processes over seven million transactions. To meet this huge demand and provide customers with the most convenient and efficient betting services, the club has been at the forefront in developing and implementing new betting technologies.

We provided strategic advice to the client bringing together our considerable international experience in engineering data centres.

The project was in two parts, firstly to resolve some local higher temperature areas in an existing data centre. By means of CFD modelling, we demonstrated the proposed in-rack cooling solution would work before any installation was successfully carried out in a business-critical space. The second part saw the creation of new space adjacent to the existing data centre. CFD modelling was also utilised to provide confidence in the cold-aisle design.
