The Bulldog Mobile Data Center’s key advantage over fixed centers and other containerized solutions lies in its innovative “all inside the box” design. Here are a few more reasons to consider it:
More Economical than Building
An MDC lets you avoid the hassle of getting permits and approvals for structures. Simply drop it in a parking lot and go.
Retrofits and Expansions
Expanding or retrofitting an existing data center requires planning and organization. And MDC gets you up and running quickly without increasing head count.
The Bulldog maintenance tradein program gives you a new MDC, with all the latest technology
on your IT evergreening schedule. We take back the old one to refurbish it.
Safer Upgrades and Testing
Looking to swap out a major system? An MDC lets you test or develop the environment
without compromising mission critical operations.
The MDC is a standards based approach to data center deployment. Everything is specified to
your needs, built in a central location, and shipped to the site.
An MDC can be ordered, assembled and shipped to your site in as little as 12 weeks. The rapid
turnaround means you can set up operations on a tighter schedule.
SECURE ZONED ACCESS AND MONITORING
IP cameras are mounted on the outside and inside of the container allowing continual visual monitoring of the equipment and access points. Card or fingerprint scanners provide 3 separate security zones.
EASY MAINTENANCE ACCESS TO CABLING
A raised floor with removable floor panels allow quick and easy maintenance access to power, cooling, drainage and network cabling and conduits.
An escape door on the hot aisle of the server room allows quick exit in an emergency. The door frame has a built in heater to prevent freezing during winter conditions.
NO-DAMAGE FIRE SUPPRESSION
Two Novec 1230 containers provide automatic and instantaneous vaporized fire suppression without damaging sensitive servers, UPS or HVAC equipment.
REDUNDANT ELECTRICAL ROOM
Generator backup, automatic ventilation control, monitored automatic transfer switch, active tracking filter for consistent power and main distribution panels are contained in a compact, but
easily maintainable area.
RIGHTSIZED SERVER DENSITY
The MDC contains four 45U server racks with A and B side power fed from two independent UPS systems. The perfect balance between computing horsepower, redundancy and affordable.
STATE OF THE ART COOLING SYSTEM
The MDC contains an advanced, high precision cooling system that pulls cool air through the servers from front to back, while maintaining optimal humidity conditions. All mechanical systems are housed inside the container, and continually monitored for maximum control.
COMPREHENSIVE SYSTEM MONITORING
All HVAC, computer, power, and control systems are monitored at all times, including power, fuel levels, temperature, humidity, air filters, air pressure, smoke, heat and more.
EXTERNAL FILTER ACCESS
Key locked external louvre doors give access to change the filters for the HVAC system. This allows a regular maintenance task to occur without having to enter the unit.
EXTERNAL FUEL FILL
Top up the 300 liter diesel tank from the outside of the data center. An externally mounted fuel gauge gives analog feedback for refueling.
BOOT CLEANING GRATE
Knock the mud off your boots as you enter the vestibule. The boot cleaning grate has a water hose and drain built in to clean up the stainless steel catch pan.
Built-in work bench with a slideout extension gives you a convenient work space and storage cabinets inside the Mobile Data Center.
Most containerized data centers require external backup generators, fuel tanks or air conditioners. Some place cooling condensers on the outside of the structure, requiring their removal before shipping. All the MDC components are housed within the container. Connect to water, power and network, and all you need is an IT staffer to start it up.
Power issues are the number one cause of data center outages. With dual UPS and a generator onboard, you can keep things running for as long as you have fuel.
Our pressurized, threezone architecture enables you to check and maintain cooling, backup, and fire suppression equipment without compromising the environmental integrity of the server room.
Card or biometric scanners create 3 security zones. Even fueling is done from the outside to minimize unnecessary access.
Simple to install
A Bulldog Mobile Data Center eliminates the risky and time-consuming tasks of screening and hiring local trades to install and commission infrastructure and equipment in a traditional data center. Everything is preinstalled and tested at the factory. Even servers and IT equipment can be preinstalled, tested and shipped with the MDC. No more schedule slippages. Just drop it in, hook up power, water, and network
Simple to maintain
Once it’s up and running, the Bulldog MDC is a snap to operate. Server maintenance is easy with our hot-cold aisle separation. No need to slide racks in and out to change servers. Everything is accessible all the time.
Simple to update
The unique Bulldog maintenance trade-in program makes refurbish cycles quick, easy and predictable. Preload a new Bulldog MDC with your new servers and network gear and now your server room follows your evergreening cycle. We ship the new MDC to your site and you ship us back the old one.
