DC Design Simplification: The simplicity of interconnection of a group of modules reduces data center deployment times to hours or days. Each module arrives loaded or unloaded depending on customer requirements with all support hardware (HVAC, ducting, power quality). Large deployments of Micro Data Centers, with or without inexpensive shell buildings, are easy to manage, co-ordinate, and design.
“Cell Computing”: When loaded with virtualized high-density raw cores/storage and interconnected, EMS’s Micro Data Centers operate as a synergistic whole. They interconnect in a similar fashion to Microsoft’s cloud computing model, but on a more "granular" scale for micromanagement of the infrastructure. Micro management promotes higher efficiency. Higher equipment temp set points can be set in full or half rack zones. Network controlled VFD blowers spin up or down based on server demand and usage information from bundled virtual resource manager software. “Over build or “under build” efficiency losses are eliminated. Capacity is added or subtracted from the computing environment based upon requirements.
Overall Building Footprint Reduction: The R.A.S.E.R., C3-S.P.E.A.R. and S.P.E.A.R. micro data centers have 100% hot/cold isle containment. The footprint of the server support equipment (hot and cold isle circulation space, CRAC and the power quality electronics) add up to floor space that must be allocated to the construction when determining total floor area of a data center. The R.A.S.E.R., C3-S.P.E.A.R. and S.P.E.A.R.’s footprint is 14 square feet. According to the Uptime Institute 100 square feet of raised floor must be allocated for each 42 U rack. We allocate 30 square feet for R.A.S.E.R., C3-S.P.E.A.R. and S.P.E.A.R. units (with all doors open and cabling taken into consideration). The C3-S.P.E.A.R. and S.P.E.A.R. are half height, yet boasts 6KW of power density and 15KW in the water-cooled version. The R.A.S.E.R. is 12KW air-cooled and 30KW water-cooled. An operating micro data center has all doors closed and is closed loop cooled. The increase in density without supporting equipment results in less overall facility floor area.
Portable Micro Environments: Capacity, power consumption and cooling requirements will increase past current data center design targets in five years or less. R.A.S.E.R., C3-S.P.E.A.R. and S.P.E.A.R.’s small-scale nature eases the deployment and adoption of new high-density equipment.
Rugged Construction: Elliptical Mobile Solutions’ high density micro data centers are rugged and sealed; allowing placement in a variety of locations throughout a facility/location. Flexible deployment strategies allow data center managers to vertically increase their facilities’ capacity without expensive build outs.
Fire Suppression Savings: Micro data centers are airtight and water tight. They can be accessed and inter connected through their watertight I/O panels. Burning equipment has no air to consume. A failed micro container due to a fire has little effect on the larger overall system. R.A.S.E.R.s, C3-S.P.E.A.R.s and S.P.E.A.R.s remain connected, sealed and operational in the event of fire suppression activation.
New Data Center Locations: Developing countries do not have the built-up infrastructure to support widespread data center proliferation. Low footprint micro data centers are perfect for these hyper growth poorly supported markets. The small-scale high density containers fit SMB budgets compared to the trailer or shipping container data center solutions. Business model short term leasing, single operator high density DC, or portable supercomputing will be enabled for the first time.
