Datapod USA Partnership to Deliver Washington Data Center

Posted by on July 29, 2014  |  No Comments

 

130326-Datapod-114-471x347Datapod USA is proud to team with North American partner Universal Networking Services (UNS) to deliver the Datapod data center System for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC).

 

Earlier this year, WSSC named Datapod USA as the successful tenderer to build and deploy their new data center facility on the outskirts of Washington DC.

 

The WSSC project requires Datapod USA to provide a 200kW data center System that can be scaled up to and beyond 1 MW over time.

 

The modular Datapod System represents a new approach to providing data center infrastructure allowing extra pods to be added to the data center as future capacity is required.

 

Datapod USA CEO Adam Smith is delighted with the partnership with UNS.

 

“This is an exciting opportunity for Datapod and we are very proud to be providing data center infrastructure for one of the United States largest utilities with our valued North American Partners UNS. Leveraging from the experience and knowledge of UNS will add to the success of this project,” said Mr Smith.

 

The 200kW data center solution equates to a four pod modular system and will be ready for operation months earlier, when compared to a traditional custom-built approach to data center construction.

 

The Datapod System will enable WSSC to fully manage its own asset and to provide supporting infrastructure such as power, cooling and fire suppression. The Datapod System also provides electrical power feeds, uninterruptible power supply and generator backup.

 

“From inside, the Datapod System looks like most enterprise grade data centers featuring optimized racks and hot aisle configurations.  The Datapod System also features a patented design that provides us with a strategic advantage,” added Mr Smith.

 

The tender process attracted bids from several international companies, with Datapod’s technical superiority, experience, speed to deployment, and completeness of the end to end solution leading to the tender win.

 

WSSC provides water and waste water services to approximately 1.8 million residents around Washington DC and their new Datapod facility is tipped to become an industry leader and will create new opportunities for the organisation by extending WSSC’s position as an advanced user of IT systems.

Deploying and Using Containerized/Modular Data Center Facilities

Posted by on March 8, 2013  |  No Comments

Over the past several years, the data center facilities industry has started toward a significant transformation.  In this transformation, traditional perceptions of data center facilities as multi-year, site-constructed, low-density buildings are shifting toward viewing them as conceived and constructed form a modular, flexible, and certainly more rapidly deployable set of solutions.  Within this latter view are solutions that include not only containerized platforms, but also modular, pre-engineered, and pre-fabricated building blocks.  When deployed and integrated with the required mechanical, electrical, and related services, these buidling blocks come together and enable the end user to realize a complete data center facility.

In contrast to traditional site-construction methods, the new containerized/modular approach to the construction and deployment of a data center can result in a faster deployment, lower operating and capital costs, and the potential to be equipped with higher density and energy-savings targets.  Furthermore, this new approach enables organizations to adjust their data center facilities’ capacity up and down in smaller, prescribed steps rather than in large jumps.  Many organizations also will look at the containerized/modular approach to help them cycle new IT and facility technologies into production, while cycling out older and less cost-effective solutions. That said, there are particular considerations that need to be accounted for as part of the planning, design, deployment, operations, and decommissioning phases of the facility lifecycle.

The Green Grid (TGG)-an international, non-profit consortium working to enhance data center resource efficiency-produced this white paper to introduce the audience to some of the more critical of these considerations.  It offers a framework of understanding that, when coupled with the right qualified expertise, may enable potential end users of containerized/modular data center facility (CMDF) platforms to be more prepared and successful in their proposed projects.  The white paper explores the traditional facility construction approach, with a deep discussion of the containerized/modular facility approach in Chapter III.  Chapters IV, V, VI explore particular considerations, limitations, and advantages of the containerized/modular facility architecture and contrasts those factors with the traditional construction approach.

Executive Summary:

The rapidly maturing containerized and/modular data center facility (CMDF) platforms offered within the industry today can enable organizations to realize significant and demonstrated technical and business value when properly applied.  This value comes from the repeatable, pre-engineered, prefabricated, and quality-assured set of building blocks that together bring online the necessary amount of IT capacity.

This new containerized/modular approach to the construction and deployment of a data center can be expected to be rapidly deployed, have lower operating and capital costs, and be equipped with higher density and energy-savings targets.  CMDF architecture has become an increasingly viable and robust alternative when considering a data center build, with multiple implementation approaches from various suppliers in the industry.

  • Additional Considerations
  • Conclusion

  • Appendix A. Understanding Reliability and Resiliency

Conclusion:

The CMDF approach can enable organizations to deploy IT equipment, capacity, and services in less time, for less cost, and under new and more business-appropriate delivery and costing models.  The prefabricated and pre-engineered nature of a module can significantly reduce the potential quality and time risks typically found in traditional fixed-facility, site-constructed approaches.  The CMDF archetecture has become an increasingly viable and robust alternative when considering a data center build, as long as organizations take into account a CMDF’s particular needs and engage proper expertise and capabilities from trusted partners.  Organizations should carefully weigh their need against the advantages, risks and challenges that a CMDF deployment may present.

New Datapod App Streamlines Data Center Design

Posted by on January 25, 2013  |  No Comments

The Datapod App will streamline data center design

January 25, 2012: CIO’s from around the world can now design their own data centers and produce a personalized proposal within minutes thanks to a new App released by innovative Australian data center manufacturer, Datapod.

The Datapod App enables CIO’s to design their own data center.  Datapod Founder and Director, Scott Carr, said the new App is another way Datapod is better servicing the needs of the industry.

The free Datapod App for the iPad is available for download from the App Store. Once the App is downloaded customers can start designing their next data center.

Using the Datapod App customers have a number of data center design options from which to choose, including how many racks, the density, the type of cooling and build in redundancies as well as other infrastructure.

Once the data center requirements have been selected the App then generates a personalized report for the customer which can be viewed as a PDF document.

The Datapod App empowers data center designers by streamlining the design process.

“The Datapod App is an extension of the efficient modular Datapod system. The App cuts down the time required to design a data center by helping customers better identify their needs. Better still, because our modular data centers are manufactured and tested before deployment our customers can have a fully operational data center within three months of accepting a proposal,” Mr Carr said.
