4 ➔ Data Center Industry Trends ➔ Project Goals – Unravelling Trends ➔ ACC7 Building Overview ➔ Chiller Assist ➔ MV & the Isolated-Paralle UPS ➔ Proof of Concept Agenda

5 Examples:  Higher operating temperatures for servers leads to relaxed ASHRAE limits;  Aisle Containment – Tighter management of hot/cold air  All overhead solutions (power/network/grounding); eliminates the need for raised flooring  Auto-sensing power supplies don’t need 120/208V (240V)  Product application: Incorporating new products available on the market (MV)  Greater Security & Audit Requirements  Modular building approach/containers Industry Trends

6 Primary Goals: Create a Design that addresses Industry Trends By developing a product that... 1. Is cheaper to build on a per megawatt basis 2. Has lower maintenance costs 3. Has industry leading PUE Project Goals LOW BUILD COSTS LOW MAINT COSTS LOWEST PUE

7 SUPPORTING GOALS: 1. MODULAR – Where “modular” refers to a design which may be constructed expeditiously and unobtrusively in logical, incremental building blocks that help defer costs 2. FLEXIBILITY a. Offer a variety of room SIZES and LOAD densities b. Offer SECURITY options c. Support an array of CUSTOMER layouts d. Provisions for CONTAINER hook-ups Project Goals

8 Building Overview & Computer Room Details

9 UPS ROOMS: Centrally Located vs. Linear (14) UPS Rooms (28) 1600 kW UPS Units Vs. (32) 1300 kW (ACC5) GENERATOR ROOMS: (28) 2250 kW Units (14 Rms) Vs. (32) 2250 kW (ACC5) Building Layout 447,000 GSF; 405,000 NSF 41.6 MW Critical

10 28 Rooms 249,000 SQFT 1.48 MW (Base) per Room Computer Rooms 8 Divisible Rooms 4 into (2) @ 750 kW 4 into (4) @ 375 kW High Density Rooms Expandable to 2.0 MW by adding (2) PDU Xfmrs Room 6 is day 1 split into (2) 750kW Rooms 1 2 34 5 6 11 9 10 7 8 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 26 25 24 23 22 21 28 27

11 ACC7 - Computer Room Metrics Typical Computer Room ~8500 SqFt 1.486MW with ability for 2.0MW

12 ACC7 - Computer Room Details 2N Electrical Redundancy Total of (18) CRAH units (N+2 ) Expandable to (22) No Raised Floor Lay-in ceiling at 13’-0” CRITICAL DISTRIBUTION PANELS 1.5 MW PDU XFMR’s “A” & “B” B1 B2 A1 A2 A B CRAH (typical)

13 ACC7 – High-Density Computer Room 1.5 MW PDU XFMR’s “A” & “B” A B 2 nd Set PDU XFMR’s “A” & “B” A B High Density Solution with ability for 2.0MW

14 ACC7 - Base Computer Room w/ Cabs Flexible equipment layouts per Client preference 378 Cabinets shown

15 ACC7 – Subdivided Computer Room Steel Mesh Wall Segregates Room Into Smaller Offerings

16 More Stringent Security & Audit Requirements: TREND: Physical segregation between servers & infrastructure OPPORTUNITY: Provide flexible optional security galleries Introduce steel mesh fencing Provides physical separation Displaces minimum floor space NO modifications to elec/mech infrastructure Unraveling Trends – Security

17 ACC7 – Computer Room w/ Gallery Optional steel mesh Gallery walls segregate Client space from DFT equipment

18 HIGHER BRANCH CIRCUIT VOLTAGE SOLUTIONS: TREND - Phasing Out: 120V single phase circuits OPPORTUNITY: Utilize 230 or 240V ($$ Savings) Instant 2X power boost to standard busway products 225A bus at 208V = 65kW 225A bus at 415V = 130kW Single pole breakers in lieu of double-pole CB’s Unraveling Trends

19 ACC7 - Computer Room Busway Layout 1.5 MW PDU XFMR’s “A” & “B” A B B1 B2 A1 A2

20 Greater Server Tolerance For Higher T’s Higher Supply & Return Chiller Water T’s Greater Opportunity For Free Cooling Smaller Chillers & Pumps Greater Energy Savings Lower PUE Higher Supply & Return Air T’s Unraveling Trends

21 TREND: HIGHER OPERATING TEMPERATURES: SOLUTION: Water Side Economization Plant with Chiller assist Primary Chilled water production by heat exchangers to provide 65-70F water (regionally dependent) Year round contribution from heat exchangers with chiller assist as needed Increased chilled water temperature difference of up to 25°F (vs. the conventional 10°F). Chiller Assist

22 HIGHER OPERATING TEMPERATURES: Allows for more hours of FREE COOLING (economizer operation) and significantly smaller chillers and lower pumping horsepower Reduced CRAH fan horsepower by 60% versus traditional units, while delivering the same cooling capacity performance Requires greater management of hot and cold air. Containment is mandatory Chiller Assist

23 CRAH Cabinet Ceiling Space Aisle Containment – Greater management of hot/cold air

24 Medium Voltage & Isolated Parallel (I-P) UPS

25 Medium vs Low Voltage Distribution: TREND: Advances in MV circuit breakers, switchgear & PDUs OPPORTUNITY: MV Distribution in the Data Center Reduces feeders by factor of 7X Significant cost savings Increased Reliability Increased Flexibility Unraveling Trends – New Products

26 Medium Voltage - Advantages

27 Greater safety—lower arc flash ARC containing MV switchgear designs are PPE Category 0 under NFPA 70E Higher Reliability Cooler running ductbanks, fewer terminations Linear Actuated Breakers More reliable (fewer moving parts = longer lasting CB) Faster clearing times Greater flexibility in DC layout - longer feeders without huge cost Greener building—less copper, PVC, steel MV Advantages

28 Introducing the new “MV PDU” A potentially disruptive technology Deconstructed PDU with separate transformer and distribution panels Single “A” and “B” oil–filled PDU transformers replace the equivalent of ten (10) conventional 300kVA PDU’s Less footprint = greater cabinet yield MV Product Advantages “I’m back from the future!”

29 Outstanding Efficiency! 99.6% vs 97.5% for dry- type Significant overload capabilities: 150% continuously MV PDU
