on365 announce a partnership to develop and sell highly energy efficient containerised data centre solutions with the Belgium based engineering company Automation and the Hampshire based Colt International, one of Europe’s leading independent providers of building services.
on365 has exclusive UK sales rights of Automation’s ‘SAFE Modular Containerised Data Centre’ design and exclusive datacentre application rights to Colt Group’s ‘Coolstream adiabatic cooling system’, allowing the partnership to guarantee customers a PUE score (power usage effectiveness) of 1.15 maximum – which competes with the results Google’s publish from their own, renowned environmentally friendly, IT infrastructure.
The low level of energy waste is largely due to the use of filtered, direct air adiabatic cooling techniques, running on fresh air and water only, without the use of expensive mechanical cooling or air conditioning units. The system conforms to the stringent A1 ASHRAE (American Society Of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) standard by offering a unique relative humidity regulation process that occurs after the adiabatic process.
on365’s containerised datacentres can be deployed up to 60% faster than traditional designs and offering typical CAPEX savings of 30%. In OPEX for cooling alone, the new datacentre can save businesses £1.1m for every 1MW of IT load, over a ten year period.
Chris Smith, director, on365 comments: “By offering clients a guaranteed PUE of 1.15, we are providing businesses with the tools they need to cut energy wastage and reduce their carbon footprint. The containerised design also allows datacentre providers to finally offer effective modularisation, flexibility and a high speed of deployment.”
Frank Vanlocke, Projects & Service Director, Automation comments: “As well as the clear costs and carbon savings, the new containerised datacentre outperforms traditional ‘stick-built’ installations and provide secure, reliable and fast IT connections for mission critical business applications – anywhere and anytime within the Northern Europe climate.”
A Belgian Engineering company – active since 1961 in electrical power – has grown into a competence centre delivering low voltage electrical Power and Datacentre Facilities solutions. Pioneering containerised solutions in Telecom since 1997, with an installed base of 600 units ranging from Cable Landing Stations, Repeater Stations to Disaster Recovery Sites, this expertise and know-how has been applied in the design and manufacturing of IT Containerised solutions, covering All-in-One containers , Modular Utility Platforms composed by IT Modules and Facilities Modules, tailor-made as well as co-developed solutions.
Customer profiles encompass global business environment as well as public market with a clear focus on dedicated segments being Industry, ICT, Telecom, Military, Government, Medical and Public Transport. www.automation.be and www.datacenterfacilities.eu
