Retailer data centre critical upgrade
- Location | UAE
- Size | Concurrently maintainable 50 rack facility
- Power | Total 400kW IT load
Due to problems with this large retailer’s old data centre Sudlows DMCC were awarded a contract via a competitive tender to upgrade the existing facility to a concurrently maintainable MEP infrastructure and provide a new data hall for expansion.
The new data centre had to be on the same site as the existing facility and was to re-use some of the existing capacity equipment such as the UPS systems and generator.
A challenge was presented in the retailer’s current data centre being at capacity both from power and floor space. This facility needed to be kept live at all times and migrated to the new electrical infrastructure without any downtime.
