The Deltalis data center consists of several multi storey buildings built into the granite rock, providing its customers with military-grade secured colocation space. Deltalis has vaulted ceilings in separated rooms and pillars around which colocation facilities had to be created. At this extreme location, data centersupplier Minkels, part of the global organization ofLegrand Group, implemented itsmodular data center products.
Modular data center solutions
Minkels was specifically selected by Deltalis for its modular approach, delivering modular data center solutions such asMinkels Varicon M data centerracksandMinkels Cold Corridor aisle containment solutionsmeant for an energy-efficient separation of cold and warm airflows. "The modularity and energy-efficiency of Minkels' solutions fully matched our detailed and location specific requirements," says Michael Imfeld, VP Marketing & Sales at Deltalis. "Modularity in the data center solutions being offered, together with Minkels' approach to fully customize its solutions on top of that, helped us to create a maximum of efficiency in our data center infrastructure. The infrastructure now connects seamlessly with the capricious cave-like environment."
Modularity and full customization on top of - but also within - modular options are key features toMinkels'data center solutions. Jeroen Hol, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Minkels: "By offering modularity and full customization as standard features we do not only m eet challenges associated with deployment in 'difficult' locations such as the Swiss Mountains project, it also facilitates current developments regarding the evolving data center dynamics and increasing need for flexibility and scalability when it comes tocloud computing and virtualization."

Imfeld: "Apart from theenergy-efficient characteristics of Minkels'solutions, we are using energy-efficient natural mountain resources, such as cold glacier water for the cooling. Of course, a project such as this requires quite some improvisation force from a supplier, but Minkels has modularity and customization integrated in its vendor supply principles. This helped us in our innovative efforts, it maximized our adaptability to the irregular environmental conditions inside the mountain."
