MODULAR SERVER ROOMS
FROM ADVANCED POWER TECHNOLOGY
Modular data centres are not only ideal for existing facilities, as opting for a modular build often proves effective when designing and installing a brand new data centre operation. The usual approach is to construct an initial modular server room which is then fitted out to meet your current requirements. This allows for future flexibility, offering the perfect solution for rapid growth enterprise data centres, or for operators of data centres in co-locations.
Furthermore, taking an entirely modular approach to server room design, enables straightforward, fast deployment in comparison to fixed data centre solutions. Such rapid, simple deployment enables a completely new data centre to be built before being transported to its final location where all that’s required will be the completion of final power and cooling connections.
A number of modular server room options are available, with the first being a bespoke design, designed and manufactured to meet a specific environment and a particular set of requirements. Alternatively, modular data centres are also available as standard 40 foot shipping containers which have been fitted out accordingly.
Consideration for the environment is becoming increasingly important and with this in mind, opting for the shipping container approach provides an approach which is more eco-friendly in comparison to others. Shipping containers are thoroughly cleaned and re-sprayed before the fit-out process begins. The necessary power systems, cooling systems, server racks and connectivity are then installed. Once installation is complete, the modular server room is ready to deployed to it’s final location, ready to use within hours.
Alongside flexibility, a modular approach to data centre design also offers a cost-effective and practical way to extend an existing data centre facility, or to provide temporary facilities. Modular facilities, whether a shipping container or bespoke design, is located close to a fixed installation either on a temporary or permanent basis. A further point worth noting is that this approach can avoid the need to obtain planning permission if the modular data centre is installed within the boundaries of your business premises.
At Advanced Power Technology we offer a full range of fully scalable modular data centre solutions, including bespoke turnkey solutions designed by our highly experienced in-house team. In addition, we also provide Schneider Electric’s superb quality configurable off-the-peg ISO containerised solutions.
As already discussed, choosing a prefabricated solution offers a range of significant benefits including a decrease in risk, thanks to a fully managed, pre-engineered system. Combined with future-proof flexibility, designed to evolve alongside your business. Moreover, prefabricated solutions provide enhanced physical security for your business-critical data, fast deployment and minimal construction for remote areas and the ability to re-purpose physical space for your core business.
Our custom prefabricated modular data centre solutions are constructed off-site to meet our client’s exact specifications, before being delivered and commission within just a few weeks. Systems such as these are designed to be fully scalable and can be stacked to keep their footprint to a minimum.
Furthermore, high efficiencies are easily achieved through direct free-cooling technology designed to provide cooling that’s almost cost-free when the outside temperature is low enough. Finally, thanks to the use of the most efficient UPS systems, airflow management and DCIM, prefabricated modular server rooms designed and installed by Advanced Power Technology offer an exceptional long-term investment which lasts for the duration of the operating lifetime.
