How to Choose Data Center Racks / Cabinets


With the rise of colocation, enterprise and edge data centers, the requirements for data center racks have changed from being a cabinet that manages equipment to a rack enclosure that can reduce data center operational costs by preserving valuable floor space, optimizing cooling and increasing the efficiency of IT staff.

There are 6 considerations before choosing a data center rack:-


1) Weight Loads

Today's organizations need data center cabinets that can hold heavier loads and maintain their structural integrity when shipped with equipment. This could mean shipping from their facility directly to a data center, or shipping from an off-site integrator directly to their data center. Shipping a fully-populated rack allows for a faster data center build-out. The raised floor and the maximum floor loading should be considered as well.


2) Open Framed or Closed Frame

Open frame racks typically cost about one third as its equivalent counterpart in a closed frame option. There is nothing to obstruct airflow from circulating through the rack for cooling. But all your equipment is exposed making it susceptible to theft. Your servers' buttons or wires may also accidentally get pulled or pushed.

 

On the other hand, the process of installing or maintaining equipment is trickier for the closed fram racks due to the obstructed nature. If you choose to use this type of rack, sliding rails and shelves for severs and other equipment is highly recommended.


3) Sizing and Capacity

Server racks are sized in units classified as "U" space. Each U represents 1.75". So, a server rack that is 58U is 101.5" tall. The rack height is significant for how much equipment that can be held inside, as well as how much power can be transmitted to equipment in the server storage device. Some organizations may require more space between the server rack and the ceiling for cooling and cabling matters.


Your data center business grows fast. Leaving racks' space for few years later is a good planning for data center expansion.


4) Off-site Integration Processes

Racks should provide the flexibility to accommodate equipment from multiple vendors in a company’s supply chain, and the equipment needs of its data center environment. Many standard cabinets make it difficult to meet these needs, and many companies are turning to custom cabinets to increase overall flexibility and maximize efficiency in their off-site integration process.


5) Multi-vendor IT Environments

Racks need to provide maximum usable space, adequate clearances for airflow, easy access for troubleshooting and reconfiguration of equipment by IT staff and minimize air mixing.


6) The Rising Cost of Cooling

Cooling can be one of the top costs in today’s data center and reducing cooling costs, which can begin at the rack level, can play a major role in reducing overall energy consumption. More powerful equipment and greater data center densities have increased the heat generated in each rack, causing computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units to work harder than ever.


For example, the closed frame racks isolate heat sensitive equipment inside the frame. You have more control over where that air flows with the addition of fans and cooling accessories designed for closed frame racks. Therefore, it is critical to have a rack that supports optimized cooling efficiencies.

Join the Analytics Leaders Summit - Artificial Intelligence & The Cloud in Manila - Philippines on 12-13 September, 2019




EnigmaCG's Analytics Leaders' Summit has achieved tremendous success and acknowledgement in the market since its introduction in May 2016 after being organized in 5 different locations- Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines and attracting over 1000+ Data Professionals who live and breathe analytics.


After a sell-out event in June 2018 in Manila - Philippines, EnigmaCG is back with Analytics Leaders Summit - Artificial Intelligence, The Cloud & Beyond in Manila - Philippines on 12-13 September, 2019.


With more than 2.5 Quintillion bytes of data being produced daily through multiple channels such as social media, ecommerce transactions, sensors as well as mobile there is no escaping it. So whats the trend now for companies who can't store data at their own data centres? The Cloud!

Whilst this is a fantastic option for many it does come with a different set of challenges such as privacy and control, downtime, vendor lock out but more importantly cyber security. This is why EnigmaCG thought it would be important to touch upon some of these issues over the two days to ensure you avoid any pitfalls that others may have encountered.

EnigmaCG's event on analytics through its speakers and panel of judges from

Samsung, Coca Cola, Grab, AXA, Axiata, Equinor, Bank of Thailand, Globe Telecom ,Standard Chartered Bank, Singapore Exchange, Flipkart, etc.

will deliver the highest quality content, address the most current topics related to predictive customer behaviour through analytics with indepth case studies which have proven to be the success stories in the market today as well as studies of what analytics can be used for in the future such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Cloud Security.


To register, please send your email to preetika@enigma-cg.com or

"Bonding" or "Grounding"?



Distinguish Between "Bonding" and "Grounding"

The terms “bonding” and “grounding” are often employed interchangeably as general terms in the electrical industry to imply or mean that a specific piece of electrical equipment, structure, or enclosure is somehow referenced to earth. In fact, “bonding” and “grounding” have completely different meanings and employ different electrical installation methodologies.




“Bonding” is a method by which all electrically conductive materials and metallic surfaces of equipment and structures, not normally intended to be energized, are effectively interconnected together via a low-impedance conductive means and path in order to avoid any appreciable potential difference between any separate points. The bonded interconnections of any specific electrically conductive materials, metallic surfaces of enclosures, electrical equipment, pipes, tubes, or structures via a low impedance path are completely independent and unrelated to any intended contact or connection to the Earth. For example, airplanes do not have any connection to Earth when they are airborne.

However, it is extremely important for the safety and welfare of passengers, crew, and aircraft that all metallic parts and structures of an airplane are effectively bonded together. The laboratories and satellites orbiting in space above the planet Earth obviously have no direct connection with the surface of our planet. However, all of the conductive surfaces of these orbiting laboratories and satellites must be effectively bonded together in order to avoid differences of potential from being induced across their surfaces from the countless charged particles and magnetic waves traveling through space.

The common method to effectively bond together different metallic surfaces of enclosures, electrical equipment, pipes, tubes, or structures is with a copper conductor, rated lugs, and the appropriate bolts, fasteners, or screws. Other bonding methods between different metallic parts and pieces might employ brackets, clamps, exothermic bonds, or welds to make effective connections.

In addition to preventing potential differences that may result in hazards, effectively bonded equipment can also be employed to adequately and safely conduct phase-to-ground fault current, induced currents, surge currents, lightning currents, or transient currents during such abnormal conditions.



“Grounding” is a term used rather exclusively in North America to indicate a direct or indirect connection to the planet Earth or to some conducting body that serves in place of the Earth. The connection(s) to Earth can be intentional or unintentional by an assortment of metallic means.





A designated grounding electrode is the device that is intended to establish the direct electrical connection to the earth. A common designated grounding electrode is often a copper-clad or copper-flashed steel rod. However, the designated grounding electrode might be a water pipe, steel columns of a building or structure, concrete encased steel reinforcement rods, buried copper bus, copper tubing, galvanized steel rods, or semiconductive neoprene rubber blankets. Gas pipes and aluminum rods cannot be employed as grounding electrodes.

The grounding electrode conductor is the designed conductor that is employed to connect the grounding electrode(s) to other equipment.
