Siemon launches VersaPOD 600mm data centre server cabinet


June 2011 — Siemon today adds a new 600mm (24 inch) wide cabinet to its VersaPOD line of data centre cabinets and racks. The VersaPOD 600mm cabinet is designed as a cost-effective option for server applications that do not require Zero-U vertical patching and cable management solutions offered with Siemon's fully-featured VersaPOD. The new 600mm-wide cabinet provides a quickly assembled, stable platform for data centre and telecommunications room applications.

Visually, the new 600mm cabinet looks like the fully-featured VersaPOD, allowing it to be deployed in conjunction with the full version to support standard cabinet applications, whilst maintaining a consistent aesthetic. Like the full-size VersaPOD, the 600mm version features contoured, highly perforated doors that deliver 71 per cent airflow for efficient thermal management.

"Based on customer feedback, the Zero-U patching and cable management channels integrated into the fully featured 760mm-wide VersaPOD are ideal for network switches and SANs, but may not be required in server cabinet applications, where many customers, such as those moving into colocation space, prefer 600mm-wide cabinets," explains Carrie Higbie, Siemon's global data centre director. "Siemon responded to customers' needs with a 600mm VersaPOD that delivers the same look and many of the key benefits offered by the complete VersaPOD line." An open floor design and multiple roof entry points allow flexible routing of horizontal and backbone cable. Each VersaPOD 600mm unit includes provisions for vertical exhaust ducts; roof mounted cooling fans and additional accessories to promote hot aisle/cold aisle isolation, such as brush guards and grommets for cable access points.

Available in both 1000mm (40in) and 1200mm (48in) depths to support deeper networking, server and SAN equipment, Siemon's 600mm VersaPOD features 45U of highly configurable horizontal rack mount space. Its standard 480mm (19in) mounting rails are depth adjustable in 5mm (0.2in) increments, to easily accommodate a wide range of equipment types. Each CEA-310-E, IEC-60297-2, UL 60950 and RoHS-compliant cabinet is constructed using a welded cold-rolled steel frame with an industrial five stage iron-phosphate pre-treatment, with textured black powder coat finish, tested to 500 hours salt spray under ASTM-D610-01 and ASTM B117.
