When Downtime Is Not An Option

Data centers are critical for all major organizations today. Downtime costs can easily exceed all other costs associated with data center operations. Superior uptime guarantees are vital for companies that aspire to meet customer expectations. EcoDataCenter is the only provider in the Nordics that is specified to Uptime Institute® Tier IV levels. We offer an industry leading 100% uptime guarantee for our Tier IV services. Innovative engineering designs with well-proven technical subsystems allow us to provide a certified Tier IV solution at a competitive cost compared to our competitors Tier II solutions (often “self-certified” as Tier III or Tier III+ designs, of which the latter does not even exist).

Cost of Downtime

The average cost of an unplanned data center outage amounts to over $740 000, according to the Cost of Data Center Outages 2016 study by Ponemon Institute and Emerson Network Power. Read More About the Study Here. In a 12-month period, almost 1 in 2 enterprise IT organizations will have experienced a business-impacting outage in their own data centers, according to Uptime Institute®.

Fault Tolerant Power and Cooling Infrastructure

Our power and cooling systems are fault-tolerant according to Uptime Institute’s® Tier IV site infrastructure topology. Tier IV is the highest level of data center classification awarded by Uptime Institute®, which guarantees a fail-safe design infrastructure. Fault tolerance means that when individual equipment failures or distribution path interruptions occur, the effects of the events are stopped short of the IT operations. We can therefore offer an industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) with 100% availability on power and cooling.

Fully Redundant Compartmentalized Power

Our data centers have redundant medium-voltage grid connections, and have multiple parallel fully-independent power systems with their own transformers, backup generator, UPS and power feeds to ensure maximum availability. Each system is fully compartmentalized all the way to the customer room. Power is distributed with a fully flexible busway system that provides a wide range of power feeds from 1-phase 16A 230V AC, to 3-phase 32A 230V AC or higher. Each cabinet has dual (A + B) power feed as a standard design. Additional C and D power feeds can be provided as an option.

2N Redundant Continuous Cooling

Our data center have fully redundant (2N) A and B cooling systems to provide stable airflow, temperature and humidity. Each system is independently capable of providing all cooling required in all customer rooms. Thermal energy storage in each system provides continuous cooling in the event of a power outage on grid connections. All pumps and fans have variable speed controls to maximize efficiency and have UPS feeds. The average room temperature is controlled at 22°C ± 3° C and a humidity level of 50% ± 10%. This is in line with ASHRAE’s recommendations.
