Building the next generation data center

  1. 1. 1
  2. 2.  Key Elements of Salient’s Next-Generation Data Center Development include:  Redundant Power  Redundant Cooling  State of the Art Security  Flexible Internal/External Network Connectivity  Industry Standards Data Center Certification Salient eliminates limited and expensive connectivity options by offering Data Center and Fiber Network connectivity in a single package. 2
  3. 3.  Salient/Minnesota Fiber Exchange is developing a Regional partnership to build a 120 mile last mile, carrier neutral, dark fiber network.  The Salient/Minnesota Fiber Exchange Network simplifies direct connectivity from the Data Center to the end-user.  Carrier Neutral access to the fiber network for licensed, credit worthy providers.  Salient/Minnesota Fiber Exchange maintained Dark Fiber can be lit by Enterprises or Carriers. Ramsey County Project part of 2012 budget cycle; also in negotiations with Dakota County for access to their fiber assets. 3
  4. 4.  Increased Carrier capacity reduces cost of bandwidth. Enables Carriers to serve targeted customers in Ramsey County (and to super-regional locations via inter network connections) from a single point of presence. Facilitates rapid delivery of Managed Services to an extensive Private and Public sector customer base. 4
  5. 5.  The Salient Next-Generation Data Center is strengthened through key partnerships:  Kraus-Anderson Construction Company  Parsons Electric  Metropolitan Mechanical  Hagen Christensen and McIlwain Architects 5
  6. 6.  Ground-up Facility- Ramsey County Suburbs Final Site Selection will be aligned with:  Anchor Tenant Requirements  Fiber Network Connectivity  Community Collaboration Currently working with MN DEED and St. Paul EDA looking at options Expected Date of Occupancy – Fall 2012 6
  7. 7.  All Carriers are now interconnect via a single facility within the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area (511 Building). A State Task Force* has identified this as a significant liability for our region. The Salient Data Center + Carrier Hotel strategy brings essential redundancy to our region. This state of the art facility will serve as a magnet for super-regional connectivity to other population centers in the Central U.S. * Source: State of Minnesota Broadband Taskforce Report 2009 7
  8. 8.  Modular 5k to 12k square foot Pods will be available. Upgradeable Tier 2 and 3 Pods provide increased flexibility to serve selected markets. Meets both medium and large enterprise requirements. Each Pod will be electrically isolated from all other Pods. Salient offers customized Pod services including managed bandwidth and “hands-on” support. Affords the economies of scale of a larger facility while only leasing the space needed. 8
  9. 9.  Healthcare Financial Services Local, State and Federal Government Hi-Technology Enterprises Local, Regional, National and International Carriers Co-location Wholesalers (Leverage Salient Pod capacity to create retail rack and cage space offerings for Small Business Enterprises) 9
  10. 10.  Tier 3+ Facility Reference Architectures include:  Uptime Institute Requirements  Facebook Open Compute Project Combined experience of the Salient Design/Build Team:  Site Specifications  Power  HVAC  Security 10
  11. 11.  Salient Site +  Upper Midwest limits Data Centers exposure to:  Seismic Activity  Hurricanes  Heavy Tornado Activity  Site Selection Criteria includes:  Out of Flight Path  Significant distance from Railway and Freeway Activity  Outside of Core Downtown areas  Opportunity for Redundant Power Feeds 11
  12. 12.  Salient Power + Scalable design with 5,000SF, 7,500SF, and 12,000 SF Pods 150 Watts/SF average Higher Watt/SF Available N+1 Centralized power generation, utilizing 2250kw Generators N+1 dedicated UPS backup per POD SCADA power monitoring system Dedicated power distribution system per POD 12
  13. 13.  Salient HVAC + Concurrently Maintainable Data Center Cooling  All Components Serviceable While Under Maximum Cooling Load  N+1 Chilled Water Plant  Robust Perimeter CRCU Fan Gallery  No Water Piping In Data Floor  150 W/SF Average Data Floor Cooling  Higher Spot Cooling Densities Available  Clean Agent Fire Suppression Below Data Floor  Double Interlock Pre-Action Fire Suppression For Critical Spaces  Early Warning Smoke Detection To Identify Problems Before They Start 13
  14. 14.  Salient Security +  Live Security Staff 24 x 7  Fully Documented Procedures  IP Video Surveillance with Analytics  Man Traps  Audited IP Access Control  Vascular Biometrics  Full RFID Tracking  Explosives Monitoring  Biometric Racks (Optional) 14
  15. 15.  Currently negotiating for Anchor Tenants for both Data Center and Fiber Network Additional Anchor Tenant opportunities and pricing are still available Agent Program allows Technology Firms the opportunity to bring Tenants to the facility and network while receiving a finder’s fee Check out our booth at the show or contact one of our associates 15
