Build to Order
You shouldn’t have to compromise on the requirements for your mission critical enterprise or cloud data center, and with Compass you don’t. Our standard functionality and wide array of options ensure that you get the data center you need, not just the space that another provider had available.
- The ability to “mix and match” space and power options to meet your specific requirements:
- Power options in 1.2MW increments in any raised floor configuration such as 2.4MW in 10,000 square feet
- Custom slab or raised floor options
- Over 75 personalization options (and growing)
- Simultaneous high (up to 30kW/rack) and low-density support
- A Workflow Optimized™ design that includes your own loading dock, de-box area and pre-wired staging and storage space
- “Water Free” cooling regardless of data center size
You’re in Control
With a Compass data center you don’t have to make compromises. You control every aspect of the facility from its IT, network and security system to the ability to use your own operations and security personnel. And, of course, you can also tell us where you want us to build it.
Customer Defined Fit-Out
Many providers require you
to adapt to their
in-place data hall power distribution and cabling configurations. At Compass we will work directly with you to optimize the power distribution and cabling infrastructure to help reduce cost and maximize efficiency on the slab, or in the white space, to your specifications and needs
Most cloud data center network and database requirements are too critical for non-2N architectures or “one size fits all” multi-tenant facilities. A Compass build-to-order data center provides you with a TCO that declines per kW as you grow, is dedicated to you, hyperscalable and built to your specifications using our “mix” and match power and space options. The solution includes water-free cooling to deliver pPUE’s of 1.25 or lower and Tier III construction certification delivered “server ready” with your preferred cable and power distribution within 6 months from ground breaking on a pad ready site.
A Different Approach
“Building a large facility in order to “grow into it” represents an enormous first cost and high TCO. Through the use of our 1.2MW “building block” you can define the size and capacity of not only your initial facility, but the expansion increments to use in the future. Each 1.2MW “block” includes multiple pathways to the PPOP and SPOP, but can be joined together via a physically meshed network to support inter-block connectivity to operate as a single entity to support the larger initial capacity, and expansion, requirements typically associated with cloud campuses.
The combination of Compass’ capabilities enables you to perform cloud operations in data centers that are built to address your specific requirements.
||What it Means to You
|Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
||Unlike competing solutions, TCO per KW decreases as you expand just like on your own builds
|Great PUE Performance with 0 WUE
||PUE below 1.25 regardless of market via water free indirect airside economization
|Dedicated to You
||No shared space. The data center and the building are all yours.
|“Mix and Match”
||The ability to mix and match power and space options to meet your specific requirements
||Add capacity as you need using our mix and match capability
||Customized power distribution and cabling infrastructure based on your requirements
|Reduced Operational Complexity and Costs
||Through the re-use use of our 1.2MW building blocks, operational complexity is reduced, training is simplified and the need for high level personnel is eliminated
||Each 1.2MW “block” is completely independent and concurrently maintainable including electrical (2N), electrical mechanical (N+1) and even fire systems. No paralleling and no static switches in power train.
|Intermeshed Physical Networks Between Blocks/Buildings
||Your site includes two fiber entrance manholes, and each building also has their own dedicated front and back fiber manholes to provide independent pathways to the PPOP and SPOP respectively. Multiple pathways are included between each POP/block and a mesh of (2) 4”conduits support inter-building connectivity:
- Datahalls, manholes too
|“Regionalized” loading/storage/security per building increment
||You select the optimal location(s) for the loading dock, storage and security areas based on your custom building increment to ensure the maximum in data hall delivery efficiency per building
Pay as You Go Scalability for the Lowest TCO
Building a data center, or renting excess capacity, to support your future demand is a waste of your capital and expensive. Each Compass data center incorporates our CompassConnect™ capability. This functionality has been developed to simplify your capacity planning efforts by enabling you to “pay as you go” to add capacity based on your space and budget a per kW as you expand. Unlike many competing colocation or modular alternatives, CompassConnect ensures that each new unit you add is fully tested (Level 5 commissioned) to ensure both its ability to support your added requirements and the safety of your on-site personnel.
data center. Where you
want it. Compass makes this possible via the combination of extensive site selection and development experience. These capabilities work in concert with our patented solution to deliver your data center in six (6) months from a pad ready site.
Simple Site Select
Pre-Identified for Quick Acquisition
Permitting and Site Design On-Going
Leasing an expandable Compass powered shell eliminates the upfront capital costs required to build a facility while providing you with a fit-out ready data center structure designed to your requirements.
Our experience in building over $3B of data centers eliminates the schedule and cost risks normally associated with building your own data center and enables us to provide you with a fully permitted building ready for you to begin your build-out efforts . Your powered shell can be built on an existing corporate property or Compass can perform the site selection, land acquisition, and obtain all the required permits and approvals for you.
By teaming with Compass to build your powered shell, you can focus on developing your data center strategies while we:
- Use our experienced construction team to eliminate project risk while accelerating the speed of delivery
- Deliver an expandable shell with power, water and fiber fully provisioned
- Enable you to fit out the facility to your specific requirements
- Preserve your company’s capital for other corporate needs
