Avoiding Datacenter Nightmares
Our client is an international sourcing office of a leading European home improvement retailer. As a typical remote and branch office, they don’t need lot of computing and storage capacity. They are required to maintain and monitor their office IT properly to ensure business continuity and seamless communication with head office.
However, as a matter of fact, it is difficult for them to secure their IT equipment against the downtime threats. Their IT equipment is operated in a harsh environment of water leaks and no round-the-clock chilled water supply. Water leaks in the building have the potential to turn into a disaster. Even smaller leaks can cause damage to equipment. Insufficient chilled water supply can make the IT equipment malfunctioning due to overheating. To solve these problems, they either relocate their office or renovate their computer room. But both involve in investing a large sum of money.
With the iDCmini solution, our client can see tremendous savings yet perfect protection. The iDCmini is an industrial grade product that can be protected from water ingresses. The high-end intelligent single rack design integrates the cooling system inside that means no chilled water is required. It completely addresses the issues of our client with a relatively very small budget. All IT equipment is well-protected now even though in a tough environment.
