Data Centre

DC West > Data Centre


The core to our operations, our data centre has been designed and developed around the principle of energy efficiency and high density racking. With this approach we have done away with traditional raised flooring and conventional air delivery / hot-cold aisle seperation and brought in designs that see a unique deployment in a next generation data centre build.


Incorporating custom fitted racks our data centre delivers conditioned air throughout the whole room via built in room ducting. Hot return air from equipment is controlled and delivered back to be processed (heat removal via HVAC or dispelled outdoors). Air intake (dependant on environmental conditions such as humitidy, temperature and air quality) is made up from returned air (closed loop) or fresh outdoor air. Having a design incorporating external processing of data centre air delivery enables our systems to run completely on fresh filtered air, drastically reducing electrical load far greater than can be achieved with alternative approaches (eg. Solar Panel)
