Cannon Technologies will use this year’s Data Centre World Conference & Expo – which takes place at London’s ExCeL between 27th -28th February – to showcase a wide variety of its innovative solutions that have been specifically designed to advance and optimise data centre services. The company will appear alongside its longstanding UK premier distributor, CMS plc, on stand E55 where visitors will also have the opportunity to get hands-on product demonstrations from Cannon Technologies’ team of experts.
For the first time at Data Centre World there will be a fully operational version of the recently trademarked Free Form Aisle Cocooning technology, which Cannon Technologies introduced to universal acclaim in 2012. Part of its T4 Data Centre Solutions range, this advanced technology unites cost effective air cabling containment and an airflow containment system into a single integrated solution that features vertical closure panels, support for legacy technologies and low energy usage. It also features an end-to-end-edge beam infrastructure, which underpins the overhead cocooning panels above the aisle without being individually dedicated to any one rack, and allows easy deployment and support for legacy systems.
Mark Awdas, Cannon Technologies’ engineering manager, commented, ‘We are looking forward to showing visitors how this energy efficient technology can offer significant capital and operational expenditure benefits, while achieving a remarkably fast return on investment.’
A plethora of other products from the T4 Data Centre Solutions range will also be on display including another first for the event – the T4 Mini Data Centre. Designed for applications such as schools and other similar environments, it can be configured in single or double rack variants using either water or direct expansion (DX) cooling. Its versatility means that it can be sited in a corridor, a cupboard or even in an external location such as a car park or a playground.
Another of the many other highlights on show will be the T4 Data Centre Manager (T4 DCM), which allows the control and configuration of a facility’s power usage, security access, environmental control and fire suppression systems by a single suite of dedicated software. The most recent version, which was introduced last year, features the ability to monitor an entire global data centre portfolio via a single bar on the display screen. The bar is green under normal conditions, but as soon as any out of operating window or out of tolerance situation is detected the bar flashes red and an audible alarm is sounded.
‘Our recent appearance on the CRN 2013 Data Center 100 list is recognition of our ability to develop products that support and protect today’s data centre services in an environmentally and economically friendly manner, while boosting efficiency and productivity,’ concluded Matt Goulding, managing director of Cannon Technologies. ‘By visiting stand E55 and talking to our in-house experts, owner and operators, managers will be able to see for themselves how our industry leading solutions can enhance their data centres.’
