The 3 Challenges of Server Rooms:
The equipment housed inside,
- Must be kept cool.
- Must be kept secure.
- Needs to easily connect to power and external networks.
If the heat isn’t managed, the equipment isn’t secured, or if it’s too difficult to connect to power, the server room won’t function as well as it would under the proper conditions. Fortunately, these roadblocks can be avoided to prevent the potential loss of time and money, but proactive planning is required. Here are suggested design considerations for shipping container server rooms. These options will ensure that the equipment will function to the best of its ability.
High performing climate control systems should also be installed to keep the enclosure cool. The tonnage of A/C will vary based on the individual project, but multiple 4-ton wall mounted air conditioners can be easily placed in cut and framed openings on the side of a shipping container.
Shipping containers are naturally great at keeping their internal contents safe from external factors, whether from the environment or intruders, but additional measures can be taken to keep the room protected. For example, the cargo doors of the shipping container can be welded closed. If it’s preferred to keep the doors operable, a lock box can be attached to protect against thieves. If a personnel door is desired instead of operational cargo doors or in addition to them, a keypad entry and a latch guard can be installed for added protection.
