Subzero Engineering, a leading provider of data centre containment solutions, has introduced its Essential Micro Data Centre, the world’s first modular, vendor agnostic and truly flexible modular micro data centre architecture. Available for order in the United States of America, United Kingdom and Europe, the Essential Micro Data Centre meets customer demands for a standardised, premium quality, cost-competitive and quick-to-install edge infrastructure system, that provides a reduced total cost of ownership of between 20%-30%.
Based on its Essential Series and AisleFrame product lines, the Essential Micro Data Centre is a small-footprint, on-premises data centre, engineered for distributed and remote infrastructure environments. Its modular architecture includes white-glove installation and support, power, cooling, infrastructure conveyance and containment. All of which are housed within a pre-fabricated, factory-assembled, modular room and shipped flat-packed to site.
With increased requirements for real-time data processing, low latency, greater security and automation, the Essential Micro Data Centre ensures predictability and performance for distributed applications. Furthermore, its customisable, modular design offers a fast, flexible and easy-to-build micro data centre system, perfectly suited for colocation, 5G, retail, enterprise and industrial environments.
Strength, security, customization
The Essential Micro Data Centre is comprised of two-parts including a physically secure, modular room containing critical power and cooling infrastructure and Subzero’s high-strength AisleFrame. Using this approach, the Essential Micro Data Centre can support a variety of load requirements and includes built-in, customisable containment, integrated with self-supporting ceiling modules and insert panels available in ABS, acrylic, polycarbonate, aluminum or glass.
The pre-fabricated system can accommodate all ladder racking, busway, fibre trays and infrastructure necessary for micro data centre applications and offers support for hot or cold aisle applications, regardless of cooling methodology. For example, the high-strength ceiling can support a range of cooling systems, including overhead Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) units. This feature offers complete customization for users who can deploy their infrastructure in aisle, row or rack configurations.
Further, its flexible, vendor-agnostic design provides users with the ability to custom-specify their own choice of power and cooling infrastructure. This approach helps overcome the challenge of having to use inflexible, pre-specified power and cooling systems in a containerised system, while retaining the ability to standardise, repeat and scale quickly, as business requirements change.
“The Essential Micro Data Centre’s flexible design makes it a perfect fit for customers searching for an alternative to the obstinate and expensive, pre-integrated solutions currently available,” said Sam Prudhomme, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Subzero Engineering. “Our vendor-agnostic approach to component specification, combined with rapid speed of and installation and lower TCO, ensures customers can truly define and scale the Edge on their own terms.”
The Subzero Engineering Essential Micro Data Centre joins its recently launched Essentials Series, demonstrating the company’s commitment to delivering customer-focused, efficient and precision-engineered digital infrastructure solutions.Click below to share this article
