Centralizing ICT operations in today’s business environment with central data centers becoming a critical component in many organizations. Tamkin can provide a complete physical data center with core elements including cooling, raised flooring, UPS, generators, racks, fire separation systems, water detection and regular maintenance services.
The key factors in any data center include the temperature and the amount of water in the air. Too much of either can result in huge losses for an organization; valuable equipment such as servers and storage must be maintained in precise conditions. The equipment we install ensures the air temperature and humidity levels are kept to manufacturer’s specifications.
All electrical equipment produces thermal energy, and the accumulated heat load produced by data processing equipment can be significant. Air conditioning is normally required to maintain the environment within these limits. A closely controlled environment produces good working conditions to the benefit of both machines and operating staff. In Data Centers, it is more common to install modular, self-contained conditioners which sit on the raised floor.
A raised floor provides space for the massive amounts of cable required in a Data Center, and can simplify the process of adding and moving equipment. Another benefit of a raised floor is cooling: cool air can be pushed under raised floors and directed at servers and other heat-sensitive equipment.
Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) Systems
In any critical infrastructure the need to maintain operation of equipment is paramount to avoid data loss, business interruption and other consequences. Typically we install UPS systems in most data center facilities to ensure a continuous supply of power irrespective of the availability of utility power. IBT wide range of UPS systems starts from 300VA through to 300KVA. We are one of very few suppliers in the UAE who can provide high-phase UPS systems for large enterprises and we have specially trained engineers available for installation and maintenance.
Fire Suppression System
We supply fire suppression systems that are equipped with specialized FM200 gas. Environmentally friendly and non-toxic, FM200 poses no risk to human health and no significant reduction in oxygen levels. FM200 gas is effective within 10 seconds of discharge so that fires are rapidly extinguished before they spread.
IBT provides water detection systems through water sensitive cables placed throughout the data center, floors, and ceilings, air conditioning units to ensure that any water leak is immediately detected and dealt with.
