Boerne ISD Data Center

As part of a new Boerne ISD Central Office at the existing Fabra Elementary School, MEP Engineering, Inc. conducted a future needs assessment and designed BISD’s new main data center to allow for approximately 15 years of growth through the use of in-row HVAC and power systems in the fast-growth district.

High efficiency in-row DX cooling was utilized in addition to cold aisle isolation and clean agent fire protection systems. A natural gas modular generator is utilized to power the data center during a central grid power failure. The data center room was designed for growth by allowing future space with server racks/cooling, power and aisle containment.

Boerne ISD transferred data operations to the new data center in 2017.
