Racks and Cages
Racks and cages are configured with GPX’s versatile overhead cable distribution system for copper and fiber cross-connects, and under the floor distribution systems for dual AC power distribution. The power delivery system within the facility accommodates multiple, physically diverse (A&B) 16 and 32 amp power drops for each cabinet.
GPX Customers can choose the standard rack cabinet configuration or have a custom designed cage configuration - provided all elements meet the required engineering specifications. The standard cabinet that GPX offers measures 78”h x 24”w x 30”d, (198cm h x 60.96cm w x 76.2cm d) and is equipped with front and back locking vented doors, power strips exhaust fans, and cable management. Customised solutions are also offered to support 42-52U cabinets.
Environment / Infrastructure (Bundled with Colocation)
Each GPX center is designed and constructed with multiple and separate levels of redundancy for HVAC, power, and fire detection/suppression systems. N+1 redundancy is offered through UPS and generator backup.
Utilizing a redundant, air cooled HVAC design, GPX provides appropriate airflow, temperature, and humidity optimizing conditions for equipment operation and minimizing downtime due to failure.
GPX power systems are designed and equipped with a level of redundancy that generates continuous operation in the event of power spikes, surges, brownouts or commercial power outages. The facility is served by multiple utility power feeds, each of which can carry the full load of the data center, from two physically diverse generating and sub-stations. The data center power infrastructure consists of multiple Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and multiple emergency backup generators in N+1 configuration, GPX’s electrical distribution system can power the data center even in the unlikely event of a public utility failure. All customer racks are supported by fully redundant A and B feeds. Each power cable from the utility feed to the customer's cabinets is encased in conduit preventing cross cable failures.
Fire Detection / Suppression
State-of-the-art, multi-zone VESDA, smoke, heat rate of rise, and flame detection systems constantly monitor the physical environment for heat, flame, and smoke. The systems have sensory mechanisms that provide heat and/or smoke alarms which in turn activate NOVEC1230 dry fire suppression systems.
Diesel Fuel Management System
Highly advanced diesel fuel management system including a fuel polisher, multiple bulk tanks, multiple 900 liter day tanks dedicated to each DG, and physically diverse fuel routes, all managed by a Simplex fuel management system ensuring constant availability of highly reliable diesel fuel to the backup generators. The fuel management system providing 48+ hours of diesel supply to the site.
