Optimised Conditions

MANOC is situated at a Secure Data Facility with a total area of 900m2. Raised flooring allows the provision of power and data cabling between racks and to telecommunications suppliers.

Within the facility the temperature is controlled to 22°C and relative humidity maintained at 45%. Plus air conditioning is provided by under floor cooling by in room air handling units, the airflow directed appropriately by grilles in the floor.

Cold Aisle Containment

To help reduce its carbon footprint, MaNOC are the first data centre in Manchester to deploy cold aisle containment.

There are many factors within a rack or aisle that can affect the flow of cooled air, and a cold aisle containment system makes sure cooled air is delivered to rack mounted equipment directly.

The system also prevents the warm air from getting into the cooled air aisles by using a containment system thus creating a cold aisle and a hot aisle.

How does Cold Aisle Containment work?

Within the cold aisle, blanking plates are clipped into each rack where equipment is not located and also to the bottom of the rack. This prevents cold air from leaking through to the warm air and vice versa.

Blanking plates are installed from the top of the rack to the finished ceiling in the cold aisle, or a lightweight plastic cover is placed between the two rows of racks in the cold aisle to make a cold corridor.

This way the cold air can't escape and mix with the hot air unless it is sucked through the server and into the warm aisle. This also prevents warm air re-circulating back into the cold aisle.
