Design: Data Centre Best Practice Design

ecodesign-link-design

Workspace Technology has simplified and standardised its approach to the design and implementation of data centre, server & communications room environments. We deliver EcoDesign™ “Best Practice” solutions in full compliance with the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centre Efficiency.

We are committed to innovate and advance best practice and are proud that we have delivered industry leading PUE performance of 1.1* for a number of data centre facilities.

* Based on the implementation of our Freecool Free Air Evaporative Cooling technology.

Principles of EcoDesign Data Centre Best Practices:

Measurement Without measurement it can be hard to understand why and where energy performance is poor and how to improve it. It is a recommendation of the Carbon Trust that sub-metering of high energy consumption infrastructure is implemented.
“Right Size” Architecture Modular, scalable power and cooling architecture that allows deployment as needed. This is the crucial element for improving data centre efficiency.
Efficient Cooling Technology The implementation of modern energy efficient cooling technologies reduce operational energy overhead.The configuration of AC system set points more appropriate to modern computer technology, will have a surprising contribution to data centre energy savings.
Clear Segregated Airflow Ensuring a clear airflow path whilst eliminating the mixing of hot and cold air through the deployment of appropriate ducting, aisle containment and airflow management technology will contribute to significant reductions in the energy demand of the cooling system.
Efficient Room Layout An efficient room layout will facilitate the deployment of appropriate cooling, allow for a modular growth strategy and assist airflow separation. Correctly positioned grille tiles will ensure airflow to equipment inlet positions.
Efficient UPS & Electrical Installation The installation of modern modular transformerless UPS technology significantly improves efficiency and also saves on floor space at typical operating loads. The installation of well designed power paths combined with energy efficient lighting reduces energy consumption.
