Modular Data Center scales to suit requirements.July 14, 2014 -
Using components that can be manually assembled on-site without crane, T4 Granular Modular Data Center helps overcome site access and logistical challenges. Sizes can range from few racks to few hundred, while thick insulated walls surrounded by weatherproof, galvanized, powder-coated steel protect against adverse environmental conditions. Along with built-in control, features include non-combustible materials, Tier 1 to Tier 4 resilience, secure construction, cooling, and other options.

Cannon T4 Inc, the international leader in innovative containment systems, has reinforced its position as the foremost manufacturer of flexible data center solutions with the introduction of the T4 Granular Modular Data Center. Part of its T4 Modular Data Center portfolio, this latest innovation overcomes difficult site access and logistical challenges, using cutting edge technology and components that can be manually assembled on-site, without the use of a crane.
The T4 Granular Modular Data Center can be scaled to suit almost any requirement, even in the most difficult to access environments. Maximum layout flexibility has been factored in at every stage to facilitate a data center that is easy to configure, fast to install and minimises disruption. Virtually any size is possible, from just a few racks to a few hundred, meaning that a data center can start small and grow cost effectively, according to need. Furthermore, lead times are exceptionally short – typically just 12 weeks from order to delivery to the customer site.
The T4 Granular Modular Data Centers can be located on a simple raised floor concrete slab in locations such as car parks, hangars, warehouses or even on roofs. Designed to cope with extremes of temperature and protect against all types of environmental conditions, thick insulated walls are surrounded by weatherproof galvanised powder coated steel. In addition, non-combustible materials are used throughout, including insulated panel cores.
Providing all of the essential elements of a modern high performance data center, it can be configured with Tier 1 to Tier 4 resilience and a low power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating. Whatever the chosen format, it will benefit from the use of efficient and compact power solutions, cutting edge infrastructure technology for optimised operation, and a robust and highly secure construction that meets the requirements of Security Equipment Assessment Panel (SEAP) Level 3.
Cannon T4 (part of the Cannon Technologies Group) is renowned for its innovative climate control solutions and the T4 Granular Modular Data Center utilises highly efficient cooling systems to provide optimised PUE. Close coupled cooling using Cannons WithIn Row Cooling (WIRC) units eliminates the need for long ducting runs, deep raised floors and large powerful fan systems. Combined with economic free cooling chillers to draw maximum benefit from ambient air, they reduce compressor run time and save energy consumption. .
A variety of rack options are available, as are cable raceways, free form pockets to accept third party cabinets and systems, within row cooling pockets and UPS, power distribution, cabling, fire suppression, CCTV, access control and active lighting.
A well lit and airy working environment is provided with full width aisles, meaning that moves, adds and changes (MACs) can be carried out with ease. Control is built in too and the entire system can be monitored with Cannon T4 Data Center Manager software, enabling continuous real time system management that ensures ultimate efficiency under all operating conditions.
Mark Hirst, head of T4 Data Center Solutions at Cannon T4 Inc, commented, ‘The T4 Granular Modular Data Center is our most flexible and fully scalable solution yet and is the perfect option for areas that have traditionally found it difficult to accommodate this type of facility. Just as importantly, this can all be achieved using our existing best in class components, with all the cutting edge features and benefits that our customers expect.’
