  7. 7. Challenges <ul><li>I was Hired in February of 2006 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Building Plan already drawn, breaking ground in April </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At that time there was NO prevision for any data center or any data closets on any floors </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Spaces available were oddly shaped and small </li></ul><ul><li>Local Contractors were suggesting traditional methods of cooling and rack layout </li></ul><ul><li>New building was requiring new servers and systems that were dramatically increasing heat and kw load that were not originally considered. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Design 1 <ul><li>Architects selected space on 2 nd floor for data center. </li></ul><ul><li>HVAC proposed was traditional raised flooring with a 12 ton Liebert Unit </li></ul><ul><li>High Density Rack Cooling was being researched </li></ul><ul><li>Researched APC InfrastruXure and found it to be the most dynamic solution for our space </li></ul><ul><li>Used InfrastruXure Design Portal to design space </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Allowed us to input our exact footprint </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Were able to enter equipment into virtual rack and calculate exact kw needs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>At this point we were looking at Rack Air Removal SX Units </li></ul>
  9. 9. Design 1 Issues <ul><li>Structural Engineer gets new weight numbers and informs us that Data Center is too heavy and cannot go on 2 nd floor. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Structural reinforcement cannot be done due to electrical room </li></ul></ul><ul><li>12 ton Liebert Unit already on its way </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At this point we are committed to raised flooring and traditional cooling or “so we think” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Rack heat calculations do not allow for future blade technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Raised flooring cannot put the cooling where it is needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Would not allow us to have HD racks </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Final Design Layout <ul><li>New 1 st floor design </li></ul>
  11. 11. Final Design <ul><li>1 st floor location gave us a larger Data Center than before however new shape had odd layout </li></ul><ul><li>Chose APC for entire solution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>80 kW Symmetra Px UPS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Loaded with 40kW N+1 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PDU for Symmetra </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Netshelter Racks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Include Rack PDU and cable and power routing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ATS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cummings 200KW 3ph Diesel Generator </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In-Row ACRP 101 Cooling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NetBotz Environmental Monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>InfrastruXure Manager Central Management </li></ul></ul><ul><li>APC RP Units for our Primary Cooling </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Liebert Cooling would be established as auxiliary and would not be required to cool the room </li></ul></ul>

Why APC? <ul><li>Complete Provider </li></ul><ul><ul><li>UPS Power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rack Solution- Vendor Neutral </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In Row HD Cooling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Transfer Switch/Generator Power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental Controls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Centralized Management </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Solution flexible to meet growing needs </li></ul><ul><li>Could meet delivery date Specifications </li></ul><ul><li>Provided on site FSE for building meetings with local contractors </li></ul><ul><li>Great financing thru reseller </li></ul>
