Powerflex offers a range of power related options that enables you to have the data centre you need today and long into the future. You can now forecast your capacity requirements in the short to medium term and dial up or down the power as you need it. Gone are the days when you needed to over provision and plan for every eventuality. Now your data centre can adapt to your business needs.

Grow power across your IT capacity without affecting operations: 

  • Dynamic provisioning of power to meet future demands
  • Upgrades can be carried out while the data centre is in production and from outside the IT area, eliminating disruption to IT services
  • Support for higher density (Available up to 3000W/m2)
  • Up to 230kW per row (up to 25kW per rack)
  • Centralised and distributed UPS
  • Options from N to 2N+1

A key issue in many data centres is while they are designed to be extremely efficient, most never achieve optimum efficiency. Target power efficiency is usually only achieved at high utilisation, however many data centres run for years below 50%. Colt coolflex allows you to optimise efficiency at any load, saving millions in energy costs over the lifetime of the data centre. Colt coolflex also supports Colt powerflex by adapting cooling in line with power usage.

  • Upgrades can be carried out dynamically while the data centre is in production and from outside the IT area, eliminating disruption to IT services
  • Cooling can be controlled dynamically to maximise efficiency even at partial loads
  • Colt cooling units operate in free cooling mode, switching to a high efficiency DX mode only when required to reduce power bills
  • The ability to configure cooling units to operate in fresh air, indirect, chilled water or DX mode as required
  • Little or no water required in standard options

What this means for you: Real life scenario’s

If you are thinking of adopting new technologies, or experiencing exponential growth, acquiring or merging with another business or consolidating your current legacy facilities, Colt ftec equips you with the capacity you need today with the flexibility to adapt to the capacity you need in the future, whatever that might be by allowing you to:

Mitigate planning risk – Only buy what you need today and scale up or down in line with future need; known or unanticipated. Should your business suddenly find itself acquiring or merging with another, downsizing or growing exponentially, your data centre can change with you, thereby eradicating the need for speculative investment.

Control costs: Control both capex and opex spend, because you only need to forecast short term requirements freeing up capital to be used elsewhere in your business. Safe in the knowledge that operational costs are as tight as they can be.

Run Efficiently: With a PUE of just 1.21 Colt ftec data centre is already 40% more economical in comparison to some of the traditional data centres in existence today. Combined with the flexibility in power and cooling allowing you to achieve optimum efficiency even at the very start of deployment –saving you millions over the lifetime in energy costs.
