ASHBURN, VA: Cannon T4 Data Center Solutions announces the addition of T4 Data Campus to its T4 Modular Data Center portfolio. It is a high performance solution that deploys pre-engineered factory built modules to make possible rapid project delivery and operational efficiency.

The T4 Data Campus is easy to configure, install, secure and designed to play down disruption, virtually any sized data centers can be achieved cost efficiently, starting from small and growing according to the needs.  It makes different configurations possible, including single or multi-floor levels, Tier 3 or Tier 4 resilience with low power usage effectiveness (PUE) ratings, alongside free cooling options. 250kW design blocks are offered as standard along with other power densities.

Mark Hirst, head of Cannon T4 Data Center Solutions says, ‘The level of flexibility offered by the T4 Data Campus sets a new benchmark in modular data center configuration and is perfect for those who want to grow their facility as required.’

The desired T4 Data Campus main modules can be selected from a comprehensive menu that enables the ‘pick and mix’ construction of data halls, network operation centers, offices, entry systems and people traps, and storage areas. Stair and lift modules, special application modules for security, and a wide array of power and cooling modules are all part of the range.

The T4 Data Campus sub-modules forming the working infrastructure are designed to ensure a totally integrated solution. They include a raised floor system, a variety of rack options, cable raceway, free form pockets, within row cooling pockets and UPS, power distribution, cabling, fire suppression and lighting. All modules can be controlled and monitored with T4 Data Center Manager software, permits continuous real time system management ensuring efficiency.

The latest addition combines two highly efficient cooling systems to provide optimized PUE. While Free Cooling Chillers draw maximum benefit from ambient air, reducing run time and saving energy consumption, WithIn Row Cooling (WIRC) units offer close-coupled airflow, negating the need for long ducting runs or large powerful fan systems.
