1. Introduction

In todays challenging economic environment, organisations are striving to stay ahead

ofcompetition and relying more on their data centre physical infrastructure (DCPI).
A data centre means business when it is available 24/7/365 and performs at the highest level at all
times. If your company is like most businesses, its needs are dynamic and can change throughout
the year. Perhaps it is enjoying an ever-expanding customer base or there are near-future plans
todouble staff and grow exponentially.
Such growth indicators can challenge your existing DCPI, which needs to be responsive, agile,
and easily scalable to be able to handle these up-to-the-minute business needs and/or technology
requirements. The complexity of this dynamic environment should be left to the experts so you can
focus on your main business.
Based on our customers input and our experience and expertise, we are pleased to introduce
our Schneider Electric specialised Data Centre Engineering Consultancy team. Our professional
services will assist customers in preventing DCPI down time, reduce time to recover, save energy,
enhance operational excellence, and provide recommendations for handling future growth.

Highly reliable, secure, and scalable data centre technology

CM Technology Group is a leading IT provider based primarily in Western

Australia. Established in 1998, the company has grown rapidly in the
past 15 years, to the point where its existing facilities were no longer
meeting its needs. To increase its services, and meet the requirements
of its existing and new clients, CM Technology Group made the strategic
decision to build a new data centre.

CM Technology Group contacted Schneider Electric Professional

Services to discuss its options. It wanted technology that was
both reliable and secure so it could attract high-caliber clients
to its business.
According to the group, its old data centre environment did not meet
thesecurity, backup power, and cooling requirements.
The company was also having problems maintaining precise temperature
in the old data centre, and was facing high electricity costs as a result,
socorrect cooling of equipment was a priority.

The CM Technology Group Tier 2+ data centre occupies 140 m of floor
space with a capacity to house 56 racks.

Working with Schneider Electric, the data centre has been designed
asascalable solution so that as CM Technology Groups clients grow
socanthe facilities.

Bottom line
Once we engaged Schneider Electric they were able to help us out with
everything we needed, said a company representative. Schneider Electric
had a holistic view of the build from the start to the finish, and their local
representation meant they were very involved throughout the entire
design process.

Customer benefits
The challenge was to create highly efficient data centres that made the
most of existing real estate.
Careful planning and project management were required to map the
power availability in the area and advanced electrical design tools were
utilised to confirm appropriate power in the facility.

Schneider Electric provided a complete power and cooling solution that
included 90 racks, power distribution units, EcoAisle containment system,
uninterrupted power supply, and Galaxy G5500 systems.
The Schneider Electric project management experience and consultative
solutions meant that it could help us build an attractive and premium
facility that is one of the most efficient in the local market, said Scott
Lawson, Plan Bs infrastructure manager.

To build its new DC3 data centre in Hobart, Tasmania, TasmaNet

partnered with Schneider Electric to design and construct a data centre
that would meet the needs of enterprise and government clients for the
present and in the long term.

TasmaNet was looking to meet the growing demands of enterprise and
government for premium data centre space. They required a best-in-class
solution that would provide both maximum energy efficiency and security
features that would make it attractive for organisations with sensitive
information catalogues, such as the state police force.
The existing brownfields site also posed some challenges that required
close consulting services to ensure the project was built to a world-class
standard while being on time and on budget.

Premium security and access control

Schneider Electric heritage in energy efficient buildings and green data

centres was an important factor for TasmaNet when it approached the
company to design, build, and install electrical infrastructure, cooling
systems, critical power, and controls components for its new data centre.

Streamlined project execution

Bottom line
Commenting on the implementation process, Joel Harris, TasmaNet,
states: Having access to the knowledge and expertise proved valuable
for this project. We were able to leverage lessons from best practice
builds to create a data centre that is one of the best in Australia.
Harris comments: Operating an energy efficient data centre is business
critical for TasmaNet. Schneider Electric has a proven track record as a
world leader in energy management and its global and local expertise
in delivering green data centres provided useful insights into product
capabilities and how to tailor these to suit our local requirements. This
combined with its experienced engineering consultants helped us
achieve a target power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.3.

co-location facility with a PUE of 1.3. It is one of the largest data centres
in Melbourne at 1280 square meters with capacity for 300 racks.
Matching the cooling to the heat load allows the facility to achieve a 30%
energy saving in comparison to traditional raised floor cooling methods
whilst still able to supply up to 30 kW of power and cooling per rack.
Schneider Electric intelligent free-cooling design means that the data
centre can achieve up to 75% free cooling annually.
The data centre solution has been designed in a modular and
scalable fashion.
