The site spans nearly 55,000 square feet. This includes 5,903 square feet of raised data center floor space, 364 square feet of demarcation locations yielding 200 total rack spaces available in server cabinets.
One of the strengths of the facility is its state-of-the-art power management plan. This begins with fully redundant (2N) active power transmitted through dual electric feeds from two substations provided by American Electric Power.
Electrical wiring to the center is supplied via two unique routes through dual transformers, dual switch gear, and dual 625 KVA-UPS systems, all of which are autonomous in supplying the center’s (2N) power at 480 volts. Single-corded servers get in-rack Automatic Transfer Switches for redundant power.
Designers of MDC employed a number of strategies for facility thermal management, including the use of N+1-rated glycol pumping stations and dry coolers and Rittal cold row containment systems. The Rittal solution maximizes cooling per cabinet and raises overall site efficiency. All cooling equipment is supported by generator back up, including seven 30-ton glycol-based air handlers.
