Modular Data Center

Our modular data center products include: small modular data center ST-Cube, medium ST-Line and large ST-MDC. The modular data center is a new generation of data center deployment based on cloud computing. In order to cope with the trend of server development such as cloud computing, virtualization, centralization, and high density, it adopts a modular design concept to minimize infrastructure to the computer room. The coupling of the environment. It integrates subsystems such as power distribution, refrigeration, cabinet, airflow containment, integrated wiring, and dynamic ring monitoring to improve the overall operational efficiency of the data center, enabling rapid deployment, flexible expansion, and green energy conservation. From the configuration form, it can be divided into micro module product MDC and container data center product CDC.

Modular data centers can meet the urgent needs of IT business units for future data center infrastructure construction, such as standardized design, component factory prefabrication, rapid on-line deployment, effective reduction of initial investment, energy pool management within modules, and high dynamic IT infrastructure resources. Utilization, intelligent operation and maintenance management, ensuring important business continuity, providing shared IT services (such as cross-business infrastructure, information, application sharing, etc.), responding quickly to changes in business needs, and green energy-saving data centers.

Traditional data centers have many drawbacks, including low reliability, poor heat dissipation, and difficulty in management. These shortcomings have not adapted to the rapid expansion of information technology today. Therefore, modular data centers have emerged. Compared with traditional data centers, modular data centers have the following main advantages:

1. High reliability standard module

The modular data center adopts modularization, standardization and high reliability design, which makes the whole system highly stable. It can provide N+1, N+X, 2N, etc. in the power supply and cooling core equipment configuration according to customer needs and actual conditions. The design is safe and reliable, meeting the various standards of Tier3 to Tier4.

The micro-module data center improves the planning and design efficiency, and can properly configure the system architecture according to the IT business requirements, such as the cabinet arrangement of the module unit, the selected power supply and distribution equipment, the cooling scheme, the monitoring system, etc.; the micro-module mass production improves the supply. Freight speed, standardized components, reduce on-site assembly workload, speed up installation; micro-modules can be assembled and pre-tested at the factory to ensure system commissioning speed and reliability; modular design, combined with infrastructure + IT equipment Integrated delivery reduces data center deployment cycles to weeks. For the container data center, even the overall joint adjustment can be realized in the factory, and it can be directly put into operation after being directly transported to the site to complete the access of the hydropower and the network.

3. Achieve staged construction and easy expansion

The modular data center integrates modular components such as end cooling, terminal power distribution, and end wiring. On the basis of reducing initial investment, it realizes on-demand deployment of data centers, avoiding idle waste of fixed assets, and ensuring large data centers. The infrastructure configuration of any IT space is optimal. The micromodule data center significantly reduces the cost of the data center during its lifetime. For the needs of large-scale IDC construction, at any time in the post, the customer needs to rapidly increase the demand of the business, and the micro-module data center is easy to expand rapidly.

4. Energy saving

At present, data center power usage costs account for the largest proportion of TCO during life. Modular data centers enable on-demand power and cooling of IT equipment, matching the capacity and load requirements of power and cooling systems, increasing productivity and reducing over-provisioning. The micro-module power conversion rate is as high as 95%. Due to the standardized interface and micro-module architecture, it saves energy and achieves system energy saving.

The modular data center is closed by cold aisle, the hot and cold airflow does not interfere with each other, and the heat island effect caused by the crosstalk of the airflow is avoided, thereby avoiding the air volume and the cooling loss. At the same time, the inter-column air-conditioning is adopted, and the near-heat source design of the refrigeration equipment is adopted to improve the cooling efficiency, solve the problem of local hot spots, and reduce the operating cost of the data center. The micro-module data center combines a water-cooled system with a natural cooling system, and the PUE can be reduced to less than 1.5.

5. Intelligent management, meticulous operation and maintenance

The modular data center utilizes real-time monitoring of the internal environment of the micro-module, power equipment, and the collaborative work of IT equipment and infrastructure to achieve refined operation and maintenance of the dynamic ring + IT equipment. The intelligent management system can provide a visual experience to help customers achieve multi-level and refined energy management in the data center, and accurately locate additional energy loss points through multiple reports to achieve energy saving. Based on big data analysis, the output energy-saving optimization scheme is built to build a green data center. Asset management realizes closed-loop management of asset information during its life cycle, ensuring timely data refresh and maintenance. At the same time, it helps users to develop asset maintenance plans, realize active early warning, dynamically adjust maintenance plans, output optimization plans according to current actual conditions, and build optimal asset management functions.
