iENVIRONMENT SUSTAINABILITY

Minimal Resources. Efficiency. Reclaim Energy. Greening. Low Carbon Footprint. Environment First.

Minimizing the environmental impact all comes down to infrastructure agility, space, power, cooling and the challenges of efficiency without impacting operations. Optimization of power usage efficiency (PUE) means if managed and controlled their is less carbon footprint. This is mandatory and is a major part of the journey of resiliency, density and effectiveness.  In collaboration with the electricity sector, its stakeholders and others our intent is to reduce the dependance on electrical power, increase the reliability of its usage in the data center making it affordable, and environmentally responsible.

LOCATION

The physical footprint of the Data Center and the cause and effect it projects on location demographics, supporting requirements, environmental balances, carbon footprint it may project and demand from local resources.

BUILDING

To build a new data center a multitude of factors need be considered in the decision-making process. As one can imagine, months of analysis, permits, city planning legislation, evaluation, engineering and planning.

DATA CENTER INSTALLATION

The installation of the cooling is one of the most critical elements of the ecosystem. This is not just a rejuvenation or tune-up of the cooling of the ecosystem this is a rigorous process to make sure your cooling is at peak efficiency and interfaces to our rack ducts, equipment connections and refrigerant levels are optimized to insure accurate airflow.

Electrical connections are to standard, the air filtration system operates in removing the heating issue from all components within the rack. We then insure the heat intakes in the ceiling are operating at maximum efficiency to reclaim the heat and distribute wherever necessary in the building.

We eliminate the hot/cold aisles within the data center freeing up valuable space that can be used to run the business in optimal fashion allowing ease of expansion, collapsing of legacy partially used racks, taking advantage of greater density equipment in compute and storage. 

SOFTWARE AFFECTS

The software interacts with the cooling system, the equipment in use and provisions and deprovisions equipment and supporting infrastructure to operate the ecosystem in the most efficient means to reduce MTBF of components optimize the life span of the equipment by round robining the provisioning equally allowing the equipment to take necessary breaks in operation versus functioning 100% of the time 24x7x365.

IMPACT

The path to building green is a slightly higher cost but is offset by the tremendous savings from the data center infrastructure agility to minimize the environmental impact of space, power and the challenges of cooling. The journey of resiliency, density and effectiveness is the management and control to achieve a low carbon footprint.
