Design Innovation Marks a New Topology of Data Centers

Fidelity Investments | Centercore™ | Raleigh/Durham, NC

Dissatisfied with offerings on the market, Fidelity Investments partnered with Integrated Design Group [ID] to explore the feasibility of a new, customizable data center product that met their specific building needs. The ID project team developed several concepts before a prototype, Centercore™, was built. Centercore™ is a fully modular and scalable data center solution constructed in a factory setting and shipped to the build site.  Comprised of a robust steel frame module wrapped in a weather resistible insulated metal panel envelope and Miami-Dade rated louvers, all equipment and distribution are installed before being shipped to the site where connections are made between units. The vendor agnostic design offers end users significant flexibility with the ability to operate a traditional computer hall, while allowing for expansion. The cooling system of the prototype utilizes outside air economization as well as hot aisle containment for increased efficiencies.
