SRA Solutions tailored approach encompassed the following key components:

SCEC Endorsed Class C Racks:
SRA Solutions provided Pulse Data Centre with SCEC endorsed Class C racks that not only maximised security but also ensured optimal airflow for efficient cooling. These racks were engineered to accommodate the clients’ specific requirements, supporting the seamless integration of server and networking equipment, and supporting the growing demand for increasing heat loads.

Zone Rated Secure Cage:
To address physical security concerns, SRA Solutions designs, manufactures and installs secure caging solutions that provides an additional layer of protection for customers critical infrastructure. SRA’s secure cage for this project was designed to provide a multi-tiered security cage system, designed to correlate with ASA and SCEC Zone specifications.

Hot Aisle Containment:
SRA Solutions custom-made hot aisle containment to optimise the cooling efficiency within Pulse Data Centre’s facility. By isolating and channelling hot air away from critical equipment, this provides a notable reduction in cooling costs and improved overall energy efficiency.

Strategic Deployment Planning: SRA Solutions worked closely with Pulse Data Centre’s leadership team to develop a strategic deployment plan that optimised space utilisation, energy efficiency, and resource allocation. Through meticulous planning and analysis, SRA Solutions identified opportunities to streamline workflows, minimise latency, and improve overall performance.

Scalability and Future-Proofing: Recognising the importance of scalability, SRA Solutions designed the deployment architecture to accommodate future growth and evolving business needs. By leveraging scalable technologies and modular designs, SRA Solutions ensured that Pulse Data Centre could seamlessly expand its infrastructure without compromising security or performance.
