Data centre space, power and cooling together with dealing with growing storage requirements are the most significant challenges facing data centres in the coming year according to a Gartner Survey 2012 published in Institute of Engineering and Technology Magazine. With a 10MW data centre having equivalent energy requirements to a small town – energy efficiency is a massive deal.
Every time somebody uploads a picture on to Facebook (and this happens 70,000 times every minute) the action can be traced to a server located in a rack located in a data centre somewhere in the world. For every watt of power that server uses another watt will be generated. Cold aisle containment is an important tool in the data centre operators’ armoury to conserve energy. If the cold air essential for the operation of the servers is contaminated by the hot air that they expel more will have to be spent on cooling and when you are looking at energy demands equivalent to a small town – it could be seen as similar to everyone leaving their freezer doors open. The need for cool air has driven data centre operators to the likes of Iceland and Finland which thanks to their cooling climate now have thriving data centre sectors.

A unique hinge chassis system (patent pending) makes the Bradbury M2M Steel Door Range, the strongest steel security doors of their class.
As the leading UK security door manufacturer, Bradbury Security has developed the M2M Steel Door Range for all personnel, fire exit and storage applications. Managing Director Tim Strawson explains how the hinge chassis system addresses the intrinsic weakness in traditionally designed doors, “The weight of a door, particularly a steel door makes it vulnerable to sagging and bowing around the hinges and in the event of an attack it is not uncommon for doors to be jemmied out from the hinge side. The hinge chassis system within the door frame greatly increases the rigidity and hence strength of the door.
