The hottest new breakthrough is the construction o

  • Detail

The actual construction cycle of Shenzhen Yantian port data center is only three and a half months. Although the construction speed is fast and the cost is low, the quality is not discounted. All this is attributed to the new data center construction method of factory prefabrication. Can the increasingly popular prefabricated modular data center abroad stand the test of Chinese users? Let the designers and builders of Yantian Port Data Center tell you in person

on March 29, 2014, Shenzhen cloud base and therefore it is the first prefabricated modular data center of security parts in China was officially opened. The first phase of the data center project took less than four months from the mobilization of equipment in September 2013 to the successful completion of the whole project in January 2014. Among them, the most popular word is "fast", which just highly summarizes the advantages of prefabricated modular data centers

factory prefabrication is feasible

the first conscious attention to the prefabrication modular data center was before the Spring Festival this year. At that time, Schneider Electric had acquired ast, a professional prefabrication modular data center supplier in Europe, and was preparing to introduce this new method of building data centers into China. Coincidentally, at that time, the commissioning of 5 film tensile testing machine just visited a large data center located in the north of Sydney, Australia, which is composed of multiple micro modules

prefabricated modular data center, as the name suggests, first, it follows the modular data center design and construction ideas, and the modular deployment mode is undoubtedly the mainstream mode of data center construction today; Second, it adopts the method of factory prefabrication, that is, to complete the assembly, connection and testing of the relevant infrastructure of the data center in the factory, so as to minimize the amount of work on the site of the data center, so as to shorten the construction cycle of the data center, improve the project quality, and also greatly reduce the cost

the data center of Shenzhen cloud base, located in the modern logistics center of Shenzhen Yantian Port Group, is said to be the first large-scale data center in China to be built by using the base factory prefabrication method. The total construction area of the data center is 60000 square meters, and it is planned to be completed in three phases within a few years. At present, the first phase of the project has been completed, with a total area of 5000 square meters, 680 existing cabinets, and 158 reserved

the pedestal factory prefabrication method is actually easy to understand, that is, dividing a large data center into appropriate modules, assembling each module on the pedestal in the factory and testing, and then transporting these modules to the data center construction site for splicing and installation. The traditional data center construction is a huge field project, which often requires dozens or even hundreds of people from different types of work to complete the construction of the data center. The pedestal factory prefabrication method turns a difficult data center project into a prefabricated product, which not only accelerates the construction speed of the data center, improves the quality, but also effectively reduces the construction cost

Hu Yin, CEO of Shenzhen Qianhai Tianyun Data Center Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Tianyun data center technology), said that the transformation of data center construction from engineering to production is a major development trend of global data center construction. Yantian port data center is a benchmark of prefabricated modular data center. Its successful construction proves to the world that through factory prefabrication, a high-level data center that can meet the all-round needs of large data center users can be built. It provides reference and Enlightenment for the vast number of data center users and data center designers and builders

Shenzhen Yantian port data center phase I project has been put into operation. The operation of the data center business is in the charge of the professional service company under the cloud base. It is said that enterprise customers have rented the data center. Shenzhen Yantian port data center is no different from the crab eater. Its use shows that the prefabricated modular data center, which has become increasingly popular abroad, can also meet the needs of Chinese users

productization of data center engineering

rapid deployment, flexible expansion, high availability and low cost have always been the core requirements of users in the design and deployment of data centers. In today's China with the rapid development of cloud computing and big data, the above needs are more prominent, and modularization, factory prefabrication and other methods can obviously better meet these needs

in fact, factory prefabrication is not the patent of the data center industry. Hu Yin said that in the pharmaceutical industry, some large pharmaceutical enterprises also use factory prefabrication when building production lines and plants, that is, they produce the equipment or modules required by the product line first, and then install them on site. Hu Yin gave another example in the field of renewable buildings. One of the core businesses of broad air conditioning is renewable building. In that year, the reason why Yuanda air conditioner was able to build a building in the Shanghai WorldExpo Park in 15 days was that it adopted the method of factory prefabrication, and all components were produced in the factory, and then assembled at the construction site. It is said that a huge factory built by Yuanda air conditioner in Hunan and a hotel next to the factory are all built by factory prefabrication. These buildings all adopt steel beam structure. If the building needs to be demolished one day, all the demolished steel beams can be recycled and reused, and there will be no construction waste. Factory prefabrication can greatly speed up the construction of a project and reduce costs, so it has been applied in many industries. Due to some special application requirements, the data center industry may be more complicated than other industries when adopting factory prefabrication

in foreign countries, prefabricated modular data centers have only become popular in recent twoorthree years. Through in-depth research, the large extension of 5.5 lead screw Zui: 450mm; Especially in the past year, Hu Yin has a deeper understanding of prefabricated modular data centers. He summarized the advantages of prefabricated modular data centers in the following four aspects

first, data center engineering is commercialized. This is the most profound impact and change that the prefabricated modular data center has brought to the data center industry. Yantian Port prefabricated modular data center will transform the construction of computer room engineering into customized products. The selection of external materials, internal equipment and assembly methods of products must undergo repeated optimization design, technical evaluation and system testing to ensure the delivery of reliable, safe and highly available data center products to users. The internal and external firmware of the product modular data center adopts a standardized structure, mainly including fire protection, lighting, maintenance sockets, equipment support structures, etc., resulting in a large number of deformation. These parts are all produced and assembled on the factory production line. A very complex computer room project that needs to be implemented in a distributed manner has become as simple as inserting building blocks, which greatly reduces the difficulty of construction and shortens the construction cycle. Usually, the construction cycle of a large data center is one and a half to two years, while the construction cycle of Yantian Port prefabricated modular data center is only three and a half months, which is enough to make Hu Yin and his team proud

second, function modularization. Modular data center products are the separation of relatively independent units in the data center infrastructure system and the modular re integration. The internal system of the module is self-contained. Through the redundancy, backup and fault tolerance of various devices in the system, each module can be stably output. These installed modules are connected through limited cables and pipelines to form a complete data center system. The prefabricated modular concept makes the deployment of Yantian port data center more flexible, the expansion more convenient and the operation more economical

producing standardized modules is Schneider Electric's strength. Schneider Electric can provide refrigeration, power supply and distribution modules necessary for modular data centers. Schneider Electric is the main equipment supplier of Yantian port data center. Equipment including cabinets, distribution cabinets, UPS units and batteries, precision air conditioners, dense buses and medium voltage switches are all provided by Schneider Electric. Hu Yin said: Schneider Electric is our main supplier in prefabricated modular data centers
