Data Modules

High Density. Scalable. Secure.

Data usage today is more complex than ever. As a result, modern servers are more powerful, scalable and easier to deploy and manage – but they also require more resources.

FORTRUST has the solution for your high density colocation needs. Our advanced data modules are high density, reliable, rapidly scalable, and provide extensive insight into your IT environment, making your job easier. We deploy only the highest quality data modules which are delivered on-demand with a standardized build that lets you predict power and cooling capacity deployment.

Fortrust’s data modules are capable of handling the most intense compute requirements

WHAT IS A DATA MODULE?

A data module is a self-contained data center environment. These purpose-engineered modules offer greater efficiency when compared to traditional raised floor colocation. Data modules allow you to easily scale your data center capacity.

WHY CHOOSE A DATA MODULE?

FORTRUST data modules provide a significant increase in per rack densities that can handle dynamic IT loads. Our data modules provide densities of greater than 35 kW per rack. Densities in the range of 400 to 800 watts per square foot are easily achieved while operating an individual per module PUE of 1.2 or less.

FORTRUST data modules offer greater efficiency in cabinet usage and management. This allows you to grow vertically, rather than horizontally. The reduced footprint requirements help you optimize your data center deployment and better leverage your technology investment.

Hot and cold aisle containment allows you to keep your equipment running at the optimal temperature and extend its lifecycle. Unlike raised floor, modules’ encapsulation keeps the hot air from rising and mixing with the cold air, and instead sucks it back down through a built in heat exchanger. Using airflow dynamics, modules draw cold air through your equipment, reducing the amount of work the hardware’s internal fans would typically have to do. The separation of hot and cold air greatly increases cooling efficiency and responsiveness.

Data modules add another layer of security to protect your critical IT environment. The compartmentalized, steel-framed architecture of the data module separates your equipment from the rest of the data center, providing independent power distribution, cooling, fire detection and suppression, and leak detection. Modules can be configured to admit authorized personnel only, using any combination of biometric scanners, card key verification, or keypad code verification. The multilayered physical security capabilities of data module technology ensures your applications and equipment are well protected.

Data modules allow you to easily scale your data center capacity. Our data modules can be deployed in as little as 60 days. Modules can accommodate any IT hardware, network, IT support equipment, and racks, which eliminates time and money spent researching and shopping for new equipment. By supporting exchangeable components, the standardization of data modules also helps to extend system longevity without interrupting the critical IT environment.

FORTRUST’s own COLOVIEW® offers 24/7/365 access to your data module environment, whenever and wherever you need it. Simply log into COLOVIEW via your smartphone, tablet or desktop for real-time information on power consumption, temperature and humidity. This allows you to optimize your colocated IT environment in the most cost-effective manner.

COLOVIEW provides complete transparency to our customers. You can have peace of mind that your service level agreement is being achieved.

“THERE AREN’T VERY MANY DATA CENTERS THAT CAN SUPPORT A COMPANY LIKE US. DATA MODULES HELP SERVICE PROVIDERS LIKE US FILL THE CABINETS TO THEIR HIGHEST DENSITY WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT THE POWER AND HEAT THAT’S GENERATED FROM THE IT EQUIPMENT.”
