ITH is to open a local TIER III datacenter on the island of Mayotte.
Despite the location’s tropical climate, a PUE of below 1.5 will be achieved thanks to an innovative cooling solution. This computer service company renowned across the Indian Ocean sought JERLAURE’s assistance to help it implement its new project.
The datacenter is part of JERLAURE’s SynEcTHIK DC range and is being developed in collaboration with architectural firm TAND’M.
This local datacenter will provide hosting services for and connect Mayotte’s businesses, both public and private.
A FORWARD-LOOKING PROJECT TO DEVELOP MAYOTTE’S DIGITAL ECONOMY
At a time when local datacenters are fast emerging in a bid to unclog networks and improve connectivity, ITH is highlighting the importance of installing a local datacenter to create a local information relay point for Mayotte’s technological ecosystem.
This computer service company will offer impartial local services to a range of clients through its cutting-edge TIER III datacenter. The center will comprise 500 square metres of IT space with capacity for 80 racks and 300 square metres of office space.
It will provide the same levels of security and availability as those enjoyed at larger datacenters. ITH will be able to offer other computer service companies, operators and, in fact, any public or private company on the island of Mayotte shared spaces with private suites and a variety of relevant services for different uses and economic models (PCI DSS certification for banking data, HDS certification for health data, etc.)
With this new acquisition, ITH is providing Mayotte with a fantastic tool to encourage digital development on the island.
A DATACENTER CONNECTED TO ITS ENVIRONMENT
Architectural firm TAND’M has designed the datacenter so that it blends in with its environment. The center overlooks a lagoon and has a modern architectural design in total harmony with its surroundings.
Datacenter energy optimisation is an important and differentiating factor with a direct impact on running costs, especially cooling, which represents over 50% of the energy consumed. On an island like Mayotte, which produces its own electricity, there is an obligation to reduce energy consumption for more than just financial reasons.
ITH MAYOTTE JERLAURE
ITH will be investing in an innovative cooling system which makes use of the bright sunshine generally found in this part of the world. The installation will efficiently produce cold and significantly reduce the datacenter’s electricity consumption. The technical architecture has been designed to work well in a tropical location with consideration of possible extreme weather conditions in the area, such as cyclones.
This new datacenter brimming with innovation and expertise and taking a responsible ethical approach will be delivered in the second half of 2019.
