With machines needing a constant supply of power, it is undeniable that Data Centre faces high power consumption and this inevitably has a negative impact on profits. This impact however can be kept to the minimum through proper designing of Data Centres and the correct adoption of efficient equipment.
Energy Efficient Cooling
At present, the two popular cooling methods utilized to keep the Data Centre within optimal range are “Air Cooling” and “Liquid Cooling.”
Air Cooling
  • Lower risk in terms of damaging equipment
  • Air move around easily to keep room temperature consistent
  • Ability to defray some operational costs
  • Unable to reduce temperatures of high density servers that require “Direct Cooling”
  • Air Cooled Computer Room Air-Conditioning Units (CRACs)
  • Air Cooled In-Row Cooling System
Liquid Cooling
  • Liquids have a very high thermal capacity (around 3,500 times greater than air) which makes them an efficient medium of heat removal.
  • “Targeted” cooling to critical servers
  • Low operation costs in the long run
  • Potential damage due to water leakages and condensation
  • Depends on capability of Location/Building as well in order to successfully implement “Liquid-Cooling”
  • Rear Door Heat Exchanger (RDHx)
  • Delta T Data Centre Cooling
  • Chilled water CRACs
In short “Air Cooling” has its limitations in cooling high density servers effectively. The strengths of “Air Cooling” revolve around its low cost and the reduction of risk, in terms of damaging the equipment.

On the other hand “Liquid Cooling” is able to establish a more “Targeted” control of cold air to critical servers efficiently. However suitability of each building needs to be taken into consideration first before the integration of “Liquid Cooling.”
The typical concerns associated with “Liquid Cooling” are leakages and condensation and these are well taken care of in today’s product design. For example, the RDHx has an intelligent sensing system that ensures the water temperature in the secondary loop is well above room dew point, thus eliminating possibility of condensation. Also, special design hosekits are deployed in the system setup to ensure leakages due to over pressurization are kept to its minimum. The hosekits are designed 10 times over the typical operating pressure in this instance.
Data Centre Energy Saver
Right now we are implementing a proven solution that enables Data Centre to achieve cost-savings through lower power consumption without affecting normal operations. This product allows corporations to optimize the flow and consumption of electricity while enjoying the benefits of lower electricity consumption.

By creating a streamlined and smooth flow of electrons, the product managed reduce the heat-emitting and power-robbing collisions which normally occur as the electric current moves from the source to the desired load, thereby creating a more efficient electric current and thus reducing energy consumption up to 20%.
 
Lastly, we are pleased to announce the expansion of our Operations into the China market. Given our small domestic market, we believe that the venture into the Chinese market will be beneficial to the firm in the long run. In today’s highly global market, expanding overseas is no longer a luxury but more of a necessity. The opening of Pro-Matrix (Shanghai) was a great step we took to stay ahead of the game as well as to reach out to a wider range of customers.

We are also proud to inform that we are now certified for Integrated Management System.
