MÁS ALLÁ DEL ESTADO DEL ARTE
The general object of this project presented at the INNTERCONECTA conference consisted of designing, manufacturing and implementing a new prototype for a modular, monitorable and mobile, Data Center (CDP) that allows testing and controlling all the factors that influence its energy consumption in order to maximize its efficiency and minimize the effects experienced by buildings that house CDPs (energy consumption, noise, vibrations, radiation, wiring, etc.)..
The demonstrating CPD was located inside a high-cube sea container, which in turn was physically located in the minimally invasive surgery center in Cáceres. All software used was free and all sensors were managed through arduous.
The air conditioning was controlled by a cold aisle – hot aisle and and by using fan convectors on racks to enable cooling.
The interior of the container was insulated with Teva paneling and the exterior was painted with special anti-thermal paint.
The participants in the project were SET, TEKNICAM, ASELCOM y COBRA, and as OPI´s Cenit-Computaes, Intromac, Universidad de Extremadura and Cetiex.
The role of COBRA was that of consortium coordination and project management.
