High Compliance to Best Practices, Attention to Detail & Enahanced Scalability (incl):
* Hot aisle / Cold aisle - Rack configuration Plus Perforated Rack: front and back doors, used throughout – for optimized cooling and air flow.
With regards to the unperforated rack doors issue, it is a real concern how often the ‘old school’ comms. equipment style racks with eg. glass door – solid back type, are used in some dataCenters. With their very limited airflow, a sealed oven type of effect is created when heat is introduced from the installed equipment. In general the more high powered and the more the rack is filled with equipment, the higher the internal termperature and thus adverse effect to installed equipment.
Whilst this wasn’t too much of an issue for eg. older (lower powered – cooler running) comms equipment, it is obviously very critical to the proper performance, reliability and longevity of today’s high powered equipment eg. servers (especially in a densely populated rack configuration, where heat generated will be greater and scope for cooling less – with little separation top and bottom).
With regards to the Hot aisle / Cold aisle - rack configuration, again this is a basic principle which is often overlooked, and is based on the following:
Because of the front(Cold)-to-back(hot) airflow of systems, the ideal placement of the cabinets and racks have the system installed front to front and back to back (i.e. Hot aisle / Cold aisle layout)
This layout enables cool air to flow through the aisles to the systems' front air intake and enables heated air to flow away from the systems' back exhaust to the air conditioner return ducts. This eliminates direct transfer of hot exhaust air from one system into the intake air of another system.
* Deeper depth: 1,000mm (locally manufactured, highly regarded) Hallam Racks. Again extra space available not only allows for greater range (eg. longer depth) of diverse equipment but also aids in air flow and cooling, as rack enclosure is more spacious – hence, enhancing air flow.
* Enhanced Security:
- Fully compliant with Australian Communications Security Instructions 33 (ACSI33).
- Five physical security layers implemented.
- Each rack compartment is key locked (incl. sub full-rack eg. ¼ and ½ etc).
Furthermore each rack has a separately locked power outlet compartment which is inaccessible accept via request to DC personnel. This greatly minimizes issues eg. client accidentally switching off power – turning off equipment in entire rack. This is particularly pertinent for multiple client shared racks.
* Enhanced Redundancy (with provision of):
- 2 x 100Mbps Internet Ports per rack.
- 2 x Diverse Power Outlets per rack.
- True Multi-Homed Internet: connectivity to 2x (tier-1 ISP) fibre links & Primus Satellite link.
- UPS power supplied throughout, supported by 800KVA generator.
- Dual redundant air conditioning.
* 100Mbps bandwidth switch Ports (fully scalable to 1Gbps fibre).
* True 24x7x365 (Data Centre – backed) Free Remote Hands - for system restarts and power ups/downs.
