This company placed the order for the Building of Tier-III Data Center to Network Techlab India Pvt. Ltd. which included the following:

1. Design of Data Center layout covering the equipment under Civil, Electrical System, HVAC System, IBMS System, UPS System, Rack & Passive Network structure as per Tier- III guideline.

2. Implementation of Civil work, Electrical work, PAC work, IBMS work, UPS & PDU work, and Passive network work for the Data Center as per Tier-III Design.

3. Detailed engineering of Data Center Infrastructure for coordination and operation of different equipment and their selection, protection, etc. as per Tier-III standard.

Objectives

The main objective is to create benefits in physical infrastructure that streamline and simplify every process from initial planning to daily operations.

Scope of Work
1. The isolated Datacenter which included Raised flooring (600 x 600 mm size) & Ceiling with floor Insulation.

2. Electrical room with redundant Main DC LT panel- Incomer Feeder – 315 Amp MCCB.

3. Emerson APM 60 kVA – 2nos UPS along with 120 AH x 34nos Quanta batteries with remote monitoring relay card.

4. Emerson PEX 135EC with iCOM for cooling.

5. Dedicated data center earthing pits.

6. Cold Aisle Containment.

Challenges
Improperly designed Data Center – Existing Data Center was not designed as per industry standards which included the use of wooden flooring, jumbling of cables, overlapping of electric with network cables, no dedicated earthing.

Hardware Failure – Frequent hardware failures including storage hard-drive crashes were observed resulting in huge loss of data & monetary losses.

Improper Cooling – The existing air conditioning was inadequate and was unable to provide the required cooling to the data center, resulting in heating of the servers.

Unmanaged Electrical System – The power source available at the site was impure containing harmonics in it, due to which power consumption was more than the required. The electrical panel was also in bad condition.

Improper Utilization of Space – The placing of equipment was in a random manner, which resulted in a shortage of space in the data center. This restricted the proper maintenance of all the equipment present in the data center.

Calling Line Drops – There was overlapping of electrical cables along with voice network lines which created interference resulting in call drops.

Corrosion of ITE – Due to the presence of sulfur in the air, corrosion of ITE was observed due to which hardware life was reduced.

Solutions

DC Enterprise – Network Techlab created an efficient data center layout by organizing every element as per the requirements and industry standards.

UPS Power Stability – We provided Liebert APM UPS. The row-based Liebert APM is a transformer-free, online uninterrupted power supply (UPS) that allows quick and easy capacity increases with Flex Power hardware assemblies–with no additional floor space required. Liebert APM operates with the industry’s highest data center power efficiency–up to 94% at loads of 50-100%.

Dedicated Electrical Panel & Earthing – We provided dedicated LT Panels with redundancy for DC and also proper body & grid earthing was provided to all the DC equipment and racks. Also, detailed SLD of wiring connections was prepared for future understanding and maintenance.

Racks – Network racks were provided in which servers were mounted in proper order along with proper cable routings. This made the aesthetics of the room look spacious.

Cold Aisle Containment – CAC was fabricated in such a way that a capsule-like structure was produced which helps in isolating the hot & cold temperatures from each other.

Cooling – Emerson PEX135EC with iCom board Precision Cooling system was installed having the configuration of 2 running & 2 standby mode which provides & maintains sufficient cooling ideal for Data Center.

IBMS – IBMS system included Fire Detection Panel, VESDA assembly, Water Leak Detection Panel, Rodent Panel & DC Room Parameter Monitoring system. This system helps in detecting any of the hazards at an early stage so as to prevent damage to Data Center & its equipment.

Achievements

Conclusion

  • Due to this designing of Data Center, the whole arrangement now has become properly organized and easy to manage. Power loss has been maintained resulting in cost saving.
  • With an organized arrangement of the data center, there is enough space for regular maintenance.
  • Now they can monitor their rooms where critical equipments are present remotely which helps them prevent from any hardware risks.
