The applicability of the micro-module room
Time of issue:2022-11-16
As an innovative star product in the data center, the micro-module computer room has been widely used in both large-scale IDC data centers and small and medium-sized EDC computer rooms. The focus has been lack of systematic analysis and summary.
The advantages of the micro-module room
1. Micro-module computer room is suitable for high-density computer room, with obvious energy saving advantages
The traditional computer room adopts the solution of room-level precision air-conditioning, which is mainly suitable for medium-density computer rooms with a power of 3-5kW per cabinet. Medium and high-density computer rooms above 5kW are suitable for inter-row air conditioning or other cooling methods. Enclosing hot and cold aisles is an energy-saving measure suitable for most computer rooms. Compared with the traditional air-conditioning under-floor air supply without aisle sealing, the solution of using inter-row air conditioners and cooling passages can save 20% to 30% of energy.
2. Micro-module computer room helps to save computer room space
The micro-module computer room is suitable for the high-density design of the computer room, so that the number of cabinets required to accommodate the same IT equipment will be less than that of the traditional computer room, and the area of the computer room will be reduced accordingly. At present, the first-class micro-module computer room manufacturers can also provide intelligent small busbar products and integrated UPS products to further save the computer room space. The intelligent small busbar products can replace the precision power distribution column cabinet, increase the cabinet out-of-cabinet rate under the same equipment room area, and are suitable for renting the equipment room or the equipment room with insufficient space. The integrated UPS combines the mains power distribution cabinet, UPS host, UPS output cabinet, and precision power distribution column cabinet into one cabinet. Reduced losses improve power distribution system efficiency and save air conditioning capacity.
3. The micro-module computer room is convenient for procurement and after-sales service
One of the typical characteristics of computer room engineering is that although the sparrow is small and complete, the equipment required for a 20m2 computer room and a 2000m2 computer room are similar, and both require dozens of hundreds of equipment and materials, which makes project procurement and after-sales service quite troublesome. . The cabinets, PDUs, channel closure components, precision air conditioners, UPS, batteries, power distribution cabinets, dynamic rings and security monitoring of the micro-module room can all be provided by the same manufacturer, and individual manufacturers can also provide integrated wiring and KVM. In addition to decoration, fire protection, data communication equipment and software, it can already meet the construction of small computer rooms. For ordinary low-end computer room users, procurement and after-sales service can be greatly simplified. But this method is not enough for high-end large computer rooms.
4. Standard module replication is used in the data center to simplify design and construction
The method of copying multiple standardized modules in the data center can simplify the design and construction. After completing a single standard module, the whole computer room can be decomposed with the module. A single module can be prefabricated by equipment manufacturers. It is easier for on-site construction due to the unified standard interface of the module. Guarantee the quality of workmanship.
5. The micro-module computer room is more beautiful
The micro-module computer room seals the cabinets according to the cold/hot aisle. Compared with the traditional computer room, the cabinets are only loosely packed according to the aisle. Manufacturers have deliberately beautified the exterior shape of the cold/hot aisle, door lintel decoration, lighting effects, etc., making the module room more aesthetically pleasing.
6. The micro-module computer room is convenient for partition management
For scenarios where multiple users deploy devices in the same computer room, the need for partition management of the computer room will arise accordingly. The micro-module computer room can be partitioned by assigning different modules to different users because of the closed channel.
