The blanking panels seen above allow us to extend the cooling and extraction system as the facility capacity increases. The entire data centre has been designed to a fully modular standard, meaning new elements are installed and brought online as required. This includes generators, UPS’s and racks, cooling and extraction – every element of the technical space is modular. The cooling and extraction system will always be able to maintain 2N on the load, extended whenever we are reaching a capacity at which we deem additional resilience is required.
