Efficient Power, Cooling & Access Control Solutions for Data Centers
Reliable, power-efficient implementation and management solutions for maximum security and performance at the cabinet room level.
Power, Thermal Management & Physical Security Solutions
According to Forbes*, global data centers used roughly 416 terawatts or about 3% of total electricity consumed in 2016—nearly 40% more than the entire United Kingdom—and this rate of consumption is projected to double every four years. As data center operators strive for more environmentally-sound solutions, improving the energy efficiency of cooling operations is a paramount concern.
High-density IT equipment continues to push enclosure heat loads into the 10-15Kw range. Many data centers are oversupplied with twice the cold air supply than necessary—and still experience ‘hot spot’ issues.
With extensive data center infrastructure experience, we can help you meet your security goals and help address the cooling, power and density paradox at the rack/enclosure level:
- Wide range of air flow, power distribution & power/climate monitoring devices to effectively manage high-density computing environments
- Focused systems-approach ensures environmental & access control solutions work seamlessly with racking & cabling for maximum performance
- Best-in-class access control & management solutions to comply with privacy rules/regulations (PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, etc.)
- Belden-certified contractors & installers trained & knowledgeable in the unique requirements of data center power & cooling requirements
- Intelligent monitoring & reporting to track flow & movement within defined data center areas to ensure regulatory compliance with HIPAA, NIC CIP, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI DSS, SSAE 16 & more
