Data Centre Efficiency
Business needs are driving IT challenges as never before.
To increase IT productivity, companies are being asked to get more from existing resources and assets, to reduce costs through efficiency, and to control overall IT costs.
Energy efficiency is a top concern as IT managers struggle with rising power bills, cooling problems, usage limits imposed by local utilities, or requirements to deploy additional servers without expanding an existing data center or building a new one. To address energy efficiency effectively, data center managers must look at a variety of issues ranging in scope from the smallest piece of silicon to the entire data center.
Ogham Engineering provide turnkey Data Centre power and cooling solutions from identifying basic areas for improvement to deploying high-density Network-critical Physical Infrastructure (NCPI).
We supply and install InfraStruXure® from APC by Schneider Electric which fully integrates power, cooling, rack, management, security and services. InfraStruXure® allows the selection of standardized components to create a solution through modular configurations. InfraStruXure is available for any IT environment, from small server rooms to large data centers.
Data Centre Cooling
Most data centers and network rooms have a variety of basic design and configuration flaws that prevent them from achieving their potential cooling capacity and prevent them from delivering cool air where it is needed.
These problems are generally unrecognized because data centers have typically been operated at power densities well below their design values.
However, recent increases in the power density of new IT equipment are pushing data centers to their design limits and revealing that many data centers are incapable of providing effective cooling as expected.
These areas include:
Even when your data center has available power and cooling capacity, it can still have hot spots and other cooling issues. Cooling can be made predictable by closely coupling power and cooling and neutralizing hot air.
Ogham Engineering provide turnkey power and cooling solutions from APC by Schneider Electric, from basic heat removal for low density rack enclosures to Hot Aisle Containment systems which ensures proper air distribution by completely separating supply and return air paths.
