Cannon Technologies, the international leader in innovative containment systems, has introduced an exciting new addition to its T4 Modular Data Centre portfolio in the form of the T4 Data Campus. Based on nearly 40 years of innovation, it is a high performance solution that uses pre-engineered factory built modules to facilitate rapid project delivery and world-class levels of operational efficiency.
The T4 Data Campus provides all of the essential elements of a modern high performance data centre. Easy to configure, fast to install and designed to minimise disruption, virtually any size can be achieved. A data centre can therefore start small and grow cost effectively, according to need.
A diverse range of configurations are possible, including single or multi-floor levels, Tier 3 or Tier 4 resilience with low power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratings, alongside free cooling options. 250kW design blocks are offered as standard, with other power densities also available. Whatever the formation, it will benefit from the use of efficient and compact power solutions, cutting edge infrastructure technology for optimised operation, and a robust and highly secure construction.
The desired T4 Data Campus main modules can be selected from a comprehensive menu that enables the ‘pick and mix’ construction of data halls, network operation centres, offices, entry systems and people traps, and storage areas. Stair and lift modules, special application modules for security, and a wide array of power and cooling modules are all part of the range.
Similarly, the T4 Data Campus sub-modules form the working infrastructure and are designed to ensure a totally integrated solution. They include a raised floor system, a variety of rack options, cable raceway, free form pockets, within row cooling pockets and UPS, power distribution, cabling, fire suppression and lighting.
Cannon Technologies is revered for its industry leading climate control solutions and the T4 Data Campus combines two highly efficient cooling systems to provide optimised PUE. Firstly, the company’s Free Cooling Chillers draw maximum benefit from ambient air, reducing run time and saving energy consumption. Secondly, its WithIn Row Cooling (WIRC) units offer close-coupled airflow, negating the need for long ducting runs or large powerful fan systems.
Expansion couldn't be simpler and modules can easily be added without disruption to the existing infrastructure. The addition of power and cooling equipment can boost capacity as the data campus grows, to increase power density or rack volume. What’s more, all modules can be controlled and monitored with T4 Data Centre Manager software, enabling continuous real time system management that ensures ultimate efficiency under all operating conditions and instant response to demand.
Mark Hirst, head of T4 Data Centre Solutions at Cannon Technologies, commented, ‘The level of flexibility offered by the T4 Data Campus sets a new benchmark in modular data centre configuration and is perfect for those who want to be able to grow their facility as required. Just as importantly, this can be achieved without compromising on quality, reliability and ease of use, thanks to the cutting edge technology that Cannon Technologies is renowned for.’
