To achieve energy and operational efficiencies, some of the world’s leading innovators in datacentre design are utilising a modular design approach for their datacentre infrastructure. Graham Evans, director, UK and Ireland for Active Power alongside Paul Anderson, programme director, Outsourcing Services at Capgemini UK and Ian Whitfield, managing director, at Red Engineering Design will examine how Capgemini UK utilised a modular design approach for its Swindon, UK based Merlin datacentre facility at Datacenter Dynamics Converged. The presentation is titled “Case Study – Capgemini Merlin and the Innovation Behind a Highly Efficient Modular Power Design.” In the session, the speakers will discuss how Capgemini integrated traditional datacentre requirements with aggressive sustainability initiatives with particular focus on power infrastructure design. The result: one of the most innovatively designed datacentres in the industry with a PUE (power usage effectiveness) of 1.11 and full Tier III design certification from the Uptime Institute. WHAT: Datacenter Dynamics Converged WHEN: Thursday, 1 December, 12:50-13:30 WHERE: London, ExCel International Convention Centre (ICC), Hall 5 Active Power will exhibit at show on stand #47 and also showcase its 12 metre PowerHouse system in the Datacenter Dynamics Technology Park located on the ground floor level of the ICC. For a guided tour of PowerHouse, please visit the Active Power stand during exhibit hours, 08:50-17:00 on 30 November and 1 December. Interested parties can also register for guided tours online beginning 20 November on the show’s website. A modular continuous power infrastructure solution, PowerHouse offers datacentre operators leading energy and space efficiencies, rapid deployment capability, and lower capital and operating expenses compared to a conventional design build. This flexible continuous power system can and has been deployed as a complete plant room installation, to support a series of containerised datacentre products, or used in modular design builds.
