Understand how Zella DC can make your operation more secure with touch-of-a-button control.
Yes, depending on the model. You may need a qualified electrician to connect to mains power. The cooling systems can be installed by any local qualified contractor. No specialist Zella DC personnel is required.
Yes. The Zella DC has been designed with busy office environments in mind where people can work in very close proximity to the IT infrastructure.
Yes. The same features that make the Zella DC very quiet in office environments also protect your IT infrastructure in dusty/dirty environments.
No. The Zella DC eliminates the need for dedicated server rooms. The Zella DC can be placed anywhere on your premises such as hallways, meeting rooms, cafeterias, board rooms, and reception areas.
No. Your Zellabox has ingress protection from water.
Any rack mounted 19-inch equipment. Servers, switches & networking equipment.
Depending on the complexity of the environment but they can be installed within 1-2 hours.
In most cases an external condenser is required, which can be installed anywhere within 30m of the Zella DC. Buildings which have access to chilled water eliminate the need for an external condenser.
Every edge environment is different and complex, flexibility in size is key to successfully deploying IT infrastructure.
Yes. The Zella DC is pre-tested and pre-programmed which speeds up the deployment time and removes any guesswork on the part of the installer.
All Zella DC components have been designed to be plug-and-play for ease of replacement and specialist personal. Most components can be self-replaced with little effort.
The Zella DC units can be placed in a horizontal position, allowing it to fit within the cargo hold of a plane. This speeds up the delivery allowing it to be quickly delivered anywhere in the world.
The base-mounted switchboard provides your first line of protection from power surges and lightning strikes. It also helps to quickly isolate power to key functions like cooling and UPS power. The switchboard also enables you to quickly install UPS. No additional site protection is required.
The cooling systems are housed within the base to allow easy access but also to separate your critical IT infrastructure from your cooling systems. For example, external contractors can replace a cooling system without being able to access your critical IT infrastructure above.
Yes. Every Edge environment is different, with many different challenges. Automation is key to responding to those challenges. For example, in the event of a power cut, the Zella DC can be programmed to go into an automated and systemised shutdown. Alternatively, this can trigger the turning off of non-critical IT devices to maximise UPS run time on critical devices. Other examples of automation include managing an external generator.
Yes. From the day you install your Zella DC, every sensor and every rack-mounted device is trapped with the DCIM monitoring.
Rather than cooling a server room, the Zella DC only cools the air within the Zella DC and recycles hot air back into cool air. The MDC also cools to match the IT heat load being generated.
The Zella DC is a purpose-built solution with over 10 years of R&D within many Edge-based environments across the world. As opposed to a traditional rack, the Zella DC has been modified to become a micro data centre that can be easily moved to different locations and scaled up as demand grows.
Internal fire protection is an optional extra. The Zella DC Pyrorack is rack-mounted at the top. It has a 10-year lifespan and requires no further maintenance.
"Zella DC support is fantastic. You don’t just get a box but a whole solution that’s pretty much turnkey from delivery. You get power and air cons hooked up and all the support you need. They fully understood what we had put in before and were able to work with it. At the end of the year, the meter showed that we saved 35% of our yearly operating cost of electricity through the reduced air conditioning load alone. We also reclaimed the room and could fit in two desks next to the units because they were so quiet."
"What impressed me was that they listened to our feedback. They made sure we definitely got all we needed from them. The overall build quality and the way the solution integrated with our systems was exceptional. It helped us to pinpoint what we actually deemed to be critical, rather than protecting the full server room. As a result, we saved on cooling and reduced overall costs considerably. It also increases the lifetime of all the equipment because it’s not dusty like it would be in an open rack."
"Apart from the huge reduction in ambient noise and temperature, the key improvement Zella DC provided was around the security components and monitoring. We were able to monitor humidity and temperature inside the cabinet, and know at all times what was going on. It’s like having a server room in a box. It gives you the ability to move your server room in the event that you change premises. Having your fire protection, your battery protection, your cooling, your environmental monitoring, all in the same one box. That’s the big value that we found with the unit."
