Digital Realty: Frankfurt FRA29 Data Center
About Frankfurt FRA29 Data Center
Located within an established data centre hub to the north west of Frankfurt, Digital Frankfurt – Wilhelm-Fay- Straße – provides a campus of three buildings, totaling 16,700m (179,757ft ) of net technical space. Each building provides six data suites of 1,200m (12,916ft ) (net space), together with 5,500m (59,201ft ) of ancillary space including dedicated offices, de-box rooms, test rooms and dedicated plant areas. The facility sits on a substantial site of circa six acres enabling the provision of flexible plant solutions and allocated car parking. A campus power supply of 40MVA allows the provision of a campus total of 27MW of delivered IT power equally divided across the three buildings. The three storey buildings are designed to deliver 3MW IT power at cabinet level, from a distributed redundant (DR) 4 to make 3 UPS system, equally distributed across the two data suites per floor. Individual buildings are supported by a medium voltage (10kV) diesel generator system which is concurrently maintainable. Cooling is delivered to each suite with a concurrently maintainable, N+1 capacity system, utilising a ‘free cooling’ pumped refrigerant system.
