AT SUBZERO ENGINEERING ,
WE BELIEVE THAT VENDOR-
AGNOSTIC , FLEXIBLE MICRO DATA CENTRES
ARE THE FUTURE FOR THE
INDUSTRY . centres are the future for the industry . For years we ’ ve been adding value to customers and building containment systems around their needs without forcing their infrastructure to fit into boxes .
We believe users should have the flexibility to utilise their choice of best-inclass data centre components , including the IT stack , the Uninterruptible Power Supply ( UPS ), cooling architecture , racks , cabling , or fire suppression system . So , by taking an infrastructureagnostic approach , we give customers the ability to define their Edge and use resilient , standardised and scalable infrastructure in a way that ’ s truly beneficial to their business .
By taking this approach , we ’ re also able to meet demands for speed to market , delivering a fully customised solution to site within six weeks .
Furthermore , by adopting a modular architecture that includes a stick-built enclosure , and the ability to incorporate a cleanroom , and a walkable , mezzanine roof , users can scale as demands require it and without the need to deploy additional containerised systems .
This approach alone offers significant benefits , including a 20 – 30 % costsaving , compared with conventional ‘ preintegrated ’, micro data centre designs .
For too long now , our industry has been shaped by vendors that have forced customers to base decisions on systems which are constrained by the solutions they offer . We believe now is the time to disrupt the market , eliminate this misalignment and enable customers to define their Edge as they go .
By providing customers with the physical data centre infrastructure they need , no matter their requirements , we can help them plan for tomorrow .
As I said , standardisation can offer many benefits , but not when it ’ s detrimental to the customer . ◊
