There is an ever increasing pressure and groundswell of opinion, both socio-political and economic, towards the conservation of energy coupled with a demand for the highest of energy efficiency standards from global industry.
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.
Due to heavy energy usage and exponential demand, it is perceived that above all others, the Data Centre industry has a pivotal role to play – fast forward to the future and it is inevitable these pressures will increase as resources become scarcer and IT demand increases.
|The system offers significant reduction in start-up costs owing to the scalability and flexibility inherent in the design. This enables the incremental growth of a data centre and allows the scale of the facility to match current demand.
Capital expenditure is drastically reduced and investment can closely track planned growth.
Utilisation percentage will improve, the service provider will not need to build speculatively and find clients. New business can be gained before rapidly bringing BladeRoom data centres online to meet the requirement.
Controlled Capital Growth
The BladeRoom system offers a fast return on capital. Data centre growth can take place quickly to meet new requirements, allowing you to invest capital in a way that closely matches demand.
Removing the need to speculatively build large data centres on day one, sometimes followed by years of under-utilisation, can save enormous amounts of money and materially improve return on capital employed.
This matching of facility to demand will produce significant improvement in return on capital employed and there are immediate tax savings and cash flow improvements compared to a traditional fit out or new build.
Scalable Data Centre Development
BladeRoom is a scalable data centre system, enabling growth to reflect the actual operational demand of a business and allowing intelligent incremental growth of data centre capacity.
Each BladeRoom data centre operates as an independent facility, designed for continuous operation even when capacity is being added.
While additional data centre facilities are produced in our factory, suitable hard standing and external electrical infrastructure can be put in place on site to allow fast plug and play installation. This simple methodology allows you to grow your site very quickly into large multi-storey data centre complexes as demand increases.
|An empirically proven PUE that offers industry-leading efficiency across the IT load range means that data centre power consumption is low from day one, even if the facility is underpopulated.
The BladeRoom system is highly energy efficient, minimising data centre power consumption by providing most of the cooling requirement through highly filtered ambient external air.
Further cooling is achieved through the adiabatic section of the Air Optimiser providing both humidity control and cooling and using almost zero energy.
Offering a proven PUE as low as 1.13 including all electrical losses, the BladeRoom system can offer an 87% saving on cooling costs and carbon use against a benchmark PUE of 2.0.
|Maintenance costs are extremely low with the BladeRoom system. The energy-efficient design has been based around readily available universal components and the monitoring system allows close management of the maintenance process.
The BladeRoom system has a minimal number of moving parts - a key feature in bringing maintenance costs down.
The monitoring interface can be accessed from anywhere in the world (following a secure login) and will provide live updates on PUE, operational performance and CCTV observation through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface.
Engineers can monitor the BladeRoom data centre remotely via laptop allowing fast response times to alarms generated by the monitoring system.
