Growing data volumes and escalating demands on the IT infrastructure can be problematic for existing IT environments. Modular containers for local outdoor siting offer a possible solution for big data applications. IT and data centre managers are familiar with the challenge of finding solutions for their specific applications which are both energy-efficient and cost-effective. Cooling the IT infrastructure is crucial, as it accounts for a significant portion of rising energy costs.
The Rittal data centre container with innovative Blue e+ outdoor cooling units is the ideal solution for extending your IT infrastructure outdoors with resource-conserving, cost-effective, energy-efficient cooling. With average potential savings of ⅓ of your energy costs, the Blue e+ outdoor cooling unit is the perfect, sustainable container cooling solution. This combination is also scalable, meaning your IT can grow with you.
The e+ principle – how does Blue e+ technology work?
The hybrid technology behind Blue e+ cooling units takes cooling energy efficiency to a whole new level. As well as an active cooling circuit for demand-based IT cooling, the Blue e+ outdoor cooling unit also incorporates a passive cooling circuit: An integral heat pipe (the passive component) automatically dissipates heat to the surrounding environment as soon as the ambient temperature drops below the temperature inside the container’s hot aisle. The effect is particularly pronounced in situations with major temperature differences, leading to significant energy and cost savings.
This solution combines a robust container with smart, energy-efficient outdoor climate control.
The data centre container with Blue e+ outdoor cooling units is ideal for extending your IT infrastructure outdoors – without the need for an external unit or the effort of fitting coolant pipework!
The benefits to you:
