Modern data center face require working with the right tools and solutions. Modular, purpose-built data center infrastructure allows organizations to develop data center services based on need − when capacity rises and where capacity is needed. Engage RCS Arabia to design and build modular, scalable and portable data center on modern technology offerings. We provide most comprehensive range of solutions to create intelligent and world class data center facilities right from raised floor, cooling solutions, UPS, Fire suppression and DCIM solutions.
is a critical part of a data center’s infrastructure, and fortunately (or unfortunately), a number of approaches are available to maintain the necessary temperatures to keep your facility’s electronic equipment running. Although a complete discussion of all the design concepts associated with cooling infrastructure could easily constitute a large tome, a brief overview of the options can help you determine which route is best for your data center.
A raised floor (also raised flooring, access floor(ing), or raised access computer floor) provides an elevated structural floor above a solid substrate (often a concrete slab) to create a hidden void for the passage of mechanical and electrical services. Raised floors are widely used in modern office buildings, and in specialized areas such as command centers, IT data centers and computer rooms, where there is a requirement to route mechanical services and cables, wiring, and electrical supply. Such flooring can be installed at varying heights from 2 inches (51 mm) to heights above 4 feet (1,200 mm) to suit services that may be accommodated beneath. Additional structural support and lighting are often provided when a floor is raised enough for a person to crawl or even walk beneath.
In the U.S., underfloor air distribution is becoming a more common way to cool a building by using the void below the raised floor as a plenum chamber to distribute conditioned air, which has been done in Europe since the 1970s. In data centers, isolated air-conditioning zones are often associated with raised floors. Perforated tiles are traditionally placed beneath computer systems to direct conditioned air directly to them. In turn, the computing equipment is often designed to draw cooling air from below and exhaust into the room. An air conditioning unit then draws air from the room, cools it, and forces it beneath the raised floor, completing the cycle.
