This back-up system is sized to cool 100% of the load with N+1 components and distribution paths for full concurrent maintenance.
|The BladeRoom system primarily uses ambient air with supplementary evaporative cooling. Back-up mechanical cooling, sized to cool 100% of the IT load is available but rarely used.
The back-up mechanical cooling system provides server room cooling on the rare occasions when outside air conditions are too hot and humid. It is also engaged when the system is in emergency recirculation mode, when there is a fire inside or contaminated outside air or smoke is detected entering the data centre.
In a temperate climate back-up cooling is required less than 1% of the year.
|An integrated VESDA system detects any external or internal airborne contaminants and initiates protective measures before they become a risk to IT and if necessary activate the server room fire suppression.
Two sensor circuits activate the system, one tracking early smoke or fumes internally and the other sensing external air quality.
When contaminants (such as smoke or dust) are sensed externally, the system will go into full recirculation mode and shut off all dampers admitting fresh air while commencing back-up mechanical cooling.
When in full recirculation mode the BladeRoom data centre maintains N+1 resilience and full concurrent maintainability.
The system will stay in recirculation mode until acceptable external conditions have returned.
|The BladeRoom system has been approved by UK Uptime Institute Accredited Tier Designers as meeting full Tier 3 and Tier 4 levels of compliance when specified.
This allows planned maintenance with no downtime through a fully concurrently maintainable design. Every critical system in the BladeRoom data centre is designed as N+1 or 2N.
Built to Tier 3 data centre standards, BladeRoom data centres can be upgraded to meet Tier 4 with little additional cost.
A BladeRoom data centre can be easily zoned to create areas of different resilience.
|BladeRoom data centres can be connected to any preferred external UPS system, or if preferred an integrated battery UPS system can be incorporated.
