The Challenge

Over time, the data centre industry has defaulted to using 19” Server racks and data centre designs and cooling methods have been tailored to accommodate these racks. We believe there is significant room for innovation and a challenging your team to develop a data hall design that removes the need for server racks. This design should include:

- Data Hall Layout

- Server Design & Housing

- Cooling Strategy and Design

We are interested in a solution where all three of these designs are solved simultaneously with a focus on maximizing the MW capacity per square metre of a single data hall. We are also interested in a sustainable, carbon-neutral design.
