Case Study Caso Thor

  1. 1. Objective: PUE 1.069<br />Case Study<br />
  2. 2. MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />CONTAINER PARK WITH:<br /><ul><li> Containers and Modular Natural Free Cooling MNFC® technology
  3. 3. MOST efficient electrical infrastructure (UPS, PDU,..)</li></li></ul><li>MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />ABOUT THOR:<br />- Based in Reykjavik (Iceland). <br />- Hosting and Cloud Storage provider<br /><ul><li> 100% Carbon Neutral Data Center (all power generation is geothermal and hydro).
  4. 4. Maximum resiliency: Tier 3
  5. 5. 18 x IT Container 40´ with 280 racks in total and 4MW IT power.
  6. 6. Natural Free Cooling.
  7. 7. Ultra low TCO: due to low PUE and reasonable priced kw/h (€ 0,03), about 70% less than in continental Europe.
  8. 8. Redundant Fiber Optic link to continental Europe with 40ms latency. </li></li></ul><li>ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION IN DATA CENTERS<br />IT systems<br /> 38%-63%<br />Lighting 1%-2%<br />Air Conditioning <br /> 23%-54%<br />UPSes 6%-13%<br />Two areas to focus on savings<br />Energy costs grow between 10% to 25% annually<br />
  9. 9. MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />THE CHALLENGE OF FREE COOLING IN ICELAND<br />- Ideal location for Free Cooling: temp year round does not exceeds 24ºC.<br /><ul><li> However, in certain wind directions some quantity of sulphur is detected in the ambience.
  10. 10. A study done by IBM showed that direct air free cooling (even with EPA filter) could damage processors after 6 months.</li></li></ul><li>MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />

  12. 12. MNFC® System: Main Advantages<br />No Cross Contamination<br />80% efficiency<br />Low pressure drop<br />100% Sensible cooling transfer<br />No moving parts<br />No energy required<br />No single points of failure<br />No Maintenance<br />Patent P201030478 <br />
  13. 13. MODULAR DATA CENTER <br />COOLING OPERATION<br />15ºC<br />31ºC<br />40ºC<br />22ºC<br />
  14. 14. MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />NATURAL FREE COOLING®OPERATIONAL RANGE<br />External temperatures < 19ºC  temperature at the cold corridor is 24 ºC or lower with no support of traditional cooling <br />19 ºC < External temperatures < 24 ºC  temperature at the cold corridor is 24 ºC or lower WITH evaporative cooling<br />External temperatures > 24ºC  chilled water cooling<br />
  17. 17. MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />
  18. 18. MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />EXAMPLE: YEARLY SAVING IN US CITIES (II)<br />Example: 500KW Data Center (IT Load) in Boston (similar PUE as Detroit)<br />
  19. 19. MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />PHASE 1 DEPLOYED:<br />IT container:<br />17 racks @ 14kW/rack <br />NATURAL FREE COOLING container<br />SERVICES room:<br />EATON UPS, model 9390, 2 x 160 kVA (2N)<br />2 x Genset 225 kVA (N+1) <br />ATS, Main Switch Boards<br />
  20. 20. SERVICES room<br />UPSMain advantages: <br /><ul><li> Scalability and modular for future growth
  21. 21. Turn key solution, service and maintenance
  22. 22. High efficiency UPS with Energy Advantage Architecture (Energy Saver System)</li></li></ul><li>MODULAR DATA CENTER<br />

  31. 31. CONCLUSIONS<br />- Security Vs. catastrophic events is a must: fire and water are main risks. DC thermal stability must be ensured!<br />- Modularity: essential to adapt to the future. Modular “Smart Shelter” building technique is ideal.<br />- Scalability: importance of planning ahead for added power and cooling equipment.<br />- Mobility and Outdoors DC: the future. Containerized or Smart Shelter modular.<br />- Power Efficient: thermal insulation provides great side benefit; DC consolidation and virtualization. GREEN<br />
