Business Case

Deploying NetShelter CX compared to building computer rooms

Based on a 60-person office with 9 x servers, switches, patching, UPS, KVM and tape backup

Build a computer room:     Deploy a NetShelter CX AR4038:
Typical budget £10k to £20k £3.5k
Typical floor space 9 square metres 0.9 square metres
Typical aircon electrical usage 3,000 Watts 101 Watts
Fault tolerance driven by aircon Greater reliability
  Wholly reliant on dedicated room aircon Servers overheat and shut down if it fails Small body of room air = short overheat time Restoration by specialist engineer call-out
  Uses room air in open office, with aircon or not Large body of room air = long overheat time Simple, hot-swappable fan modules:
much less complex than aircon
average life of service of fans is >8 years
Hold a spare fan module = instant up-time
Deployment timetable 4 to 6 months Deployment in 2 to 4 weeks
  Internal resources needed for planning Landlord approval drawings and timescales Landlord can be a problem in old buildings Construction disruption and lead time Aircon machinery and ducting lead time
  Typical lead times for NetShelter CX Often available ex-inventory Unpack-and-place delivery service is standard Delivered fully built and plug-and-play ready
Scalability Scalability
  Repeat as above
  Just add another NetShelter CX
Zero portability Full portability
  Sunk cost not recoverable if you move. Landlord requires restoration as-was.
  You can take it with you when you move Repeat above economies in your new building
