A Dedicated Data Center Built in Less than 6 Months
That’s not modular; that’s a building!
A Natural Disaster Resistant Solution
Your Compass dedicated data center is a permanent solution. This means that it has been hardened to withstand extreme environmental conditions. Each Compass data center is encased within a shell made up of 12” thick, steel reinforced insulated pre-cast concrete walls. An 18” multilayered roof provides a Level 1.5 seismic importance factor (the same standard as a hospital built on the San Andreas fault) and enables it to withstand winds (including uplift) of up to 150mph (the equivalent of a Level 4 Hurricane or an EF3 Tornado). The incorporation of this hardened exterior enables you to locate your Compass data center wherever you need it, without having to design, build, and pay for a structure of your own, as is the case with many pre-fabricated data center alternatives.
A Versatile Design
If you’ve ever sat behind a foul pole at a baseball game you know what a pain columns can be. That’s why your 10,000 square feet of 36” raised floor is column free. At Compass, your data center floor accommodates anything from a tape library or a Cisco 7000 with side-to-side airflow to OpenCompute’s new larger rack sizes. This degree of flexibility even extends to cable management to support your preference whether its above the rack, hanging from the ceiling, or below the floor. At Compass, the only option you don’t have is to strand your IT capacity.
Speaking of your data center floor flexibility, can you control how much the software uses of the server and storage capacity? We didn’t think so. The reality of the world is that most software does not drive the full use of the server (virtualized or otherwise). As a result, it’s tough to predict what your actual usage will be from rack-to-rack. Not to mention the patch, network and storage…That’s why your Compass solution will support rack densities that cover the spectrum up to 20kW without containment (from 0 to 400 W/sf). Just imagine what you can do using ASHRAE TC 9.9 best practices including containment.
