The PUE of the BladeRoom System varies depending on the climate in which the data centre is located, with PUEs as low as 1.13 for temperate climates like the UK and 1.31 for hot and humid climates like Dubai.
PUE figures have been calculated with all electrical loss through an external N+1 UPS system, N+1 standby generators, 2N transformers, plant ventilation systems and lighting. Independently the BladeRoom PUE for a data centre located in the UK is below 1.1.
A BladeRoom data centre with 1MW of IT will only require 130kW of additional power for everything else. This PUE delivers the lowest operating costs and carbon emissions available.
With such a small amount of power required for support systems and with mechanical cooling so rarely used, BladeRoom energy efficient data centres can allow a far greater proportion of site power to be dedicated to servers by running back-up cooling on generator power - maximising available power and increasing overall IT capacity on a power-constrained site.
The tables below show the cost savings and carbon reductions available by deploying BladeRoom energy efficient data centres compared to other systems, using the example of a 1MW data centre.
All PUE figures include calculated electrical losses based on an external N+1 UPS system, N+1 standby generators, 2N transformers, plant ventilation systems and lighting.
