VERSAPOD DATA CENTRE CABINET THERMAL CAPACITIES

Analysis Overview: This analysis is based on a third-party thermal capacity study of the VersaPOD cabinet using CFD modeling and uses the following parameters:

  • A single 45U VersaPOD was fully populated with 1U/500W servers
  • A perforated floor tile placed in front of the cabinet provides an air output of 13°C (55°F), 600CFM
  • Servers were evenly removed until equipment intake temperatures met manufacturer requirements

ANALYSIS #1: STANDARD VersaPOD CABINET

data centre rack thermal analysis
  • 1000mm (40") VersaPOD cabinet
  • Perforated front and rear doors
  • No fans or vertical blanking panels installed
  • Blanking panels are used in horizontal locations where equipment is not present

(14) servers installed within limits of intake temperatures
(14) x 500W = 7kW capacity

ANALYSIS #2: VersaPOD WITH VERTICAL EXHAUST DUCT & FANS

data centre enclosure thermal analysis
  • 1200mm (48") VersaPOD data centre cabinet
  • Perforated front doors
  • Solid rear doors
  • Vertical exhaust duct
  • 3 fan trays installed in top of cabinet (9 fans total)
  • Blanking panels are used in horizontal locations where equipment is not present

(26) servers installed within limits of intake temperatures
(26) x 500W = 13kW capacity
