The micro data centre cabinet is an all-in-one solution from Secure I.T. Environments incorporating 19” cabinets, cable management, cooling, UPS, power environmental monitoring and fire suppression – all within a single compact unit.
Our range of Micro DC cabinets are available in several sizes, all designed to offer the best possible combination of flexibility, optimal functionality, performance and security to meet your business needs and avoid the need for rooms full of data centre racks.
The micro DC form factor has been around for some time, but the power and functionality that can now be packed into these units is incredible. You can now squeeze so much computing power into a small space, that a room full of data centre racks may be overkill for your DC assets and needs on-site. Even high-density workloads (up to 80Kw power consumption) can be housed in a single micro data centre cabinet.
The popularity of architectures such as Edge Computing and the IoT means data centres are increasingly distributed across much wider geographical locations. This gives organisations the opportunity to locate smaller data centres on-site in remote locations, where they can gain performance improvements, by being closer to fibre backbones or the sensors on which they rely, and even operating autonomously, particularly in the event of a wider network outage. This is becoming common in a wide range of industries for edge computing use cases from telco towers to industrial processing.
Secure I.T. Environments experienced project team has established an enviable relationship with our clients based on trust, mutual respect and proven performance by listening, understanding and implementing the client’s exact requirements.
Where the needs of a client do not match our standard offering or are conceptual rather than practical, our in-house team of experts will adjust any specification to ensure it is in line with the original objective and ensure it falls wherever possible in the budget.
One of the key advantages of our Micro data centres is that they can be housed in almost any location, regardless of the environmental conditions and your computing needs. Our units have been installed in production lines, remote industrial locations, under desks and outside exposed to the elements.
Unlike traditional data centres one of the biggest challenges can be keeping a micro data centre in harmony with its environment and the risks it might be exposed to. Under a desk, it needs to run silently but is perhaps relatively secure as it benefits from wider building security. Outside it may need to deal with extremes of temperature and the constant risk of theft, if in an unstaffed location.
Our micro DC cabinets offer an all-in-one solution, with all the essential technologies available for a complete data centre, designed and built by our team to your specifications. 19” server racks, cable management, cooling, UPS, power, environment monitoring, access control/security and fire suppression, can all be housed within the cabinets, creating a secure and compact DC.
All the server racks and critical infrastructure of a larger DC can be found in these convenient units, without compromising security, or performance or needing dedicated server rooms.
Cabinets are available in two heights (40U and 45U) and in widths of 400mm, 600mm and 800mm. The 400mm width unit is designed to accommodate an InRow cooling unit whilst the 600mm is a standard width cabinet. The 800mm cabinet chassis is for networking and high-density applications (up to 80Kw in a single cabinet!)
Our micro data centre range comes with a host of features and options including lighting, door access control, access ramps, blanking panels, and enclosed weather shelters. Units can also be customised with your company branding and a range of frame colours.
Designed with scalability in mind, you can purchase a single 19” cabinet and the appropriate cooling system, scaling out over time as your budget or your equipment needs change.
Our micro data centre range has been designed to mitigate a number of risks, and our consultants will work with you to identify those in your organisation and create the right DC design. For example, in a production setting, we will use specialist air filtration and insulation to minimise the risks of airborne particulates and temperature extremes.
Security issues matter too. Our micro data centres can include the latest version available of hi-tech access controls, hardened cabinets, CCTV and monitoring systems which will make teams aware of any unauthorised access attempt or tampering with cabinets.
With an ever-increasing reliance on ICT underpinning the Health Board’s wide-ranging clinical and business activity, it is strategically essential that we maintain fit-for-purpose data centre facilities to host the many and varied systems that exist in a modern NHS ICT infrastructure. From procurement through to completion, Secure I.T. proved to be an excellent partner, working closely at every stage with our lead engineers. Having dealt with many ICT suppliers over the years, working with SITE revealed a refreshing experience and approach to customer satisfaction and equally, pride in what they deliver.
