4 What is a data center? The data center is a physical place that houses a network'smost critical systems, includingbackup power supplies, fireprotection systems, airconditioning, and security.
5 The Challenge Data Centers, Network Closets, Remote Office and Cloud Computing applications are inefficient, expensive to buildand operate, and don’t scale well to match business andinfrastructure needs.Huge construction costs (Up to $1,300/sq ft)Long time to build (up to 24 months)Have to build the whole thing up front and hope IT catches upInefficient = high cost to operate
7 Why Containerized Systems? Connect the “Facility” (building shell) together with the complete package for the best possible efficiency.Reduce starting costs and operational expenses.Create a standardized platform that can adjust to the rapidly changing information technology environment.
9 What is a “Micro-Modular Data Center” (MMDC)? The natural evolution from large, brick and mortar data centers to40ft/20ft data centers built in shipping containers to rack-level datacenters. Simply add power, network and IT equipment .BRICK & MORTARCONTAINERMMDC

21 Critical IT Facility Issues Critical Problem 2Problem: Limited Energy and highly inefficient cooling in data centerEffect of Problem: Data Centers running out of power due to so much power allocated tocooling the IT equipmentHow do you Resolve the Problem: Cool equipment within the enclosure rather than the entirefacilityValue Proposition:Operating expense reductionEfficiency demonstrated in cooling “only the equipment” vs the entire room achieves up to 75% reduction in electricity costs.Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) as low as (typical PUE for a standard data center is 2.0, meaning that for every watt of power delivered to the IT equipment, an additional watt is used to support the equipment from an electrical and cooling perspective)RASER HD allows for “high temp” water cooling, removing water chillers from the OPEX equation.=Would you take the milk out of your refrigerator and cool your whole house to keep the milk cold?21
22 Critical IT Facility Issues Critical Problem 3Problem: Space constraints / Lack of flexible space to deploy ITEffect of Problem: Computing requirements outrun facility physical capacity, limitedoptions relative to where IT is deployedHow do you Resolve the Problem: EMS enclosures reduce the data center footprint by 75% andoffer the ultimate flexibility in where IT is deployed.Value Proposition:Footprint OptimizationDue to the ability to deploy higher density equipment, significant floor space reduction can be achieved.Due to the nature of the hardened enclosures, IT can be deployed in unimproved spaces, even outside.EDI Case Study Comparing a Traditional Data Center Design to a Design Based on Elliptical Mobile Solutions’ R.A.S.ER. Micro-Modular Data CentersGreater Flexibility in Use of SpaceThe EMS Cabinet offers a drop in place infrastructure that can be placed in any environment. This allows flexibility in site with strict floor space limits and even allows the client to implement this solution in less traditional spaces (boiler room, outdoor space, etc). The traditional approach requires a finished space within reasonable distances of an exterior wall or roof area where supporting mechanical equipment can be placed. The development of the finished space would include basic improvements such as floors, ceiling, walls, insulation, access, access control, grounding, lighting, and general power.22
