Cold aisle containment (CAC) creates a cold air plenum chamber within a cold aisle to prevent the mixing of hot and cold air flows. Benefits include:

  • Elimination of hot and cold air mixing
  • Control of humidity and static
  • Significant reduction in energy usage.
  • Control of inlet temperature
  • Elimination of hot spots

Hot aisle containment (HAC) ensures the controlled flow of hot air back to the CRAC units. Data racks offer two versions of HAC –
ceiling plenum or rack chimneys. Features include:

  • Floor construction or air flow under voids
  • Ceiling construction and accessibility
  • Suitable for Ducting

Active Floor Aisle Containment

Our range of data centre active roof designs can help enable Cold Aisle Containment across your data centre and protect your data centre facility, in case of emergency. If the worst does happen, the active roof’s canopy automatically deploys, allowing your fire suppression systems to access the contained aisles, minimising any damage to your data centre. How does it work? An electromagnet controls the active roof frame. This activates when a signal is sent from your fire alarm panel to an interface unit. The interface unit accepts a variety of inputs from the fire alarm panel and feeds this controlling signal out to a series of remote interface units. When the unit is activated, a visual and audible warning is given. If the power is disrupted, a power failsafe operation is automatically activated. You can also use the system’s test button to check the unit’s operations, without interfering with the main fire alarm panel.

Power Management

Switched and managed rack power distribution unit (PDU) bars monitor your data centre’s power distribution and its critical environmental conditions. This includes the temperature and humidity levels in your server cabinets.

Many PDUs are accessible via TCP/IP. So, you can consolidate an unlimited number of systems under a centralised power management and environmental monitoring solution.

Switched or intelligent power distribution units (iPDUs) are often used in large and/or growing data centre environments. These iPDU systems come equipped with several security and safety features. These include overload protection, circuit breakers for single or grouped power outlets, threshold settings and access control.

If you use managed PDUs with third-party power management software and applications, additional security, monitoring, and management functions are also available.

Data Centre CFD Analysis:

As the power density of computer equipment within a server room rack increases, energy efficiency and excellent thermal management becomes very important. Operational costs can be reduced by implementing layout modifications and cooling air flow optimization. Data center CFD simulation is the most cost-effective yet accurate way to analyse different real-case scenarios.

CFD helps you save energy costs and reduce damage risks by gaining knowledge from accurate flow field analysis and what-if scenarios.  CFD analysis of data centers can be used for optimal thermal management, efficient cooling design and discovering “hot spots” (poorly ventilated areas where cooling air is not reaching the servers).

 

Services and benefits for better data center cooling:

  • Data Center Airflow Optimization
  • Analyze data center floor space power consumption and heat load
  • Calculate cooling distribution airflow requirements from server room HVAC
  • Predict data center temperaturedistribution
  • Locate high temperatures and hot spots and reduce the risk of equipment failure
  • Suggestions for open floor tile additions and server rack relocation to satisfy cooling requirements
  • Find the optimal position of a new asset
  • Reduce costsby optimizing airflow: identification of inefficient inlets or outlets
  • Reduce costs by optimizing operational conditions of cooling units (performance is usually overestimated)
  • Prevent equipment failure by simulation by what-if scenarios (e.g. power outage, malfunction of one fan etc.)
  • Dimensioning and positioning of the primary and backup cooling units
  • determine how long one has to react when a piece of cooling equipment fails
  • Computer Room Air Conditioner (CRAC) analysis

Data center CFD analysis outcomes:

  • Make Better Decisions About Cooling
  • Optimize HVAC equipment to reduce costs
  • Run Failure Cases
  • Proactively Manage IT Growth

Data center HVAC CFD analysis:

  • ventilation fan performance, pressure rise and volume flow rate
  • ductwork efficiency, pressure loss prediction and optimisation
  • floor ducting optimization for excellent airflow distribution
  • inlet and outlet optimisation

Modular Data Centre Solutions:

Our modular data centre is a smart and flexible architecture suitable for small and medium enterprise applications. In addition to the integration of main systems of power, cooling, racks and monitoring, the cold or hot aisle containment also provides superior air flow management to enhance cooling efficiency. A traditional data center takes 18 to 24 months to build, while a modular data centre requires only a few weeks or months for deployment. Delta’s modular data centre, with its fully modular design concept, is flexible and offers pay-as-you-grow with short installation time to meet the rapidly growing needs of data storage and processing.
