Pre-fabricated Portable Modular Data Center (PMDC)
Data Specialties Inc. as a partner with IBM designed, built and installed an energy-efficient Pre-fabricated Portable Modular Data Center from start to finish in just over 4 months.
Osage Casino required a new Data Center to support their casino operations and other departments including surveillance, Information Technology department and Osage Nation. The existing Data Center was located in a facility that was scheduled to be demolished to make room for a new Hotel/Casino. The Data Center needed to be relocated quickly so the new project could move forward.
Osage decided that a Pre-fabricated Modular Data Center facility would meet their fast track schedule and was more flexible than construction of a new facility by allowing them to relocate it in the future.
The IBM proposal was selected due to our ability to manufacture a product that met the IT department requirements. Competing products were “standardized designs” and not capable of being customized to meet Osage Casino’s requirements.
The proposed module was a double wide unit complete with:
- N+1 UPS System
- DX In Row Cooling Units
- (30) IT Equipment Racks
- Cold Aisle Containment System
- Standby Generator
- Gas Fire Suppression System
- VESDA Smoke Detection System
- Facility Monitoring System
The PMDC solution was selected due to our ability to manufacture a product that met the IT department requirements, including the project schedule, scalability, load density, flexibility and the total number of rack spaces. The PMDC allowed the new Hotel/Casino project to begin, while Osage Casino was provided with a portable Data Center that could be relocated in the future, if necessary.
