RiMatrix Micro Data Center

Customizable Micro Data Center Solutions

Increasing digitalization across every aspect of business today is creating vast repositories of data, often at unprecedented rates. It is also occurring across all industries - Healthcare, Finance, Manufacturing, or the energy industry. This information is increasingly filtered and aggregated at the source, enabling datasets to be used effectively in real time. The need to process and analyze these large amounts of data has driven the recent trend for in-house Micro Data Centers (MDC).

Supporting this Hyperlocal environment is The Edge - processing ever increasing volumes of data with short latencies to quickly leverage the insights provided by this information, in near real time. And supporting the Edge infrastructure is the Micro Data Center (MDC). Used in place of a traditional data center, a Micro Data Center provides redundancy, functions as an on-premises backup solution, while protecting IT assets in areas that are less than ideal for sensitive electronics. This also delivers the advantage of keeping data in-house, reducing threats to the security of an organization’s valuable information.

All-In-One: A Physical Infrastructure Solution Designed for Unique IT Needs

Prompted by the trend towards decentralization, Rittal has developed the RiMatrix Micro Data Center. Standardized globally, the MDC offers a complete data center physical infrastructure solution to meet a wide array of requirements, including those demanded specifically at the Edge. Rittal MDCs are available in a range of sizes, are individually configurable, and adapt readily to variable installation conditions. Standardized modules ensure high levels of flexibility and expandability, enabling the solution to grow as an organization’s requirements change.

RiMatrix Micro Data Center solutions combine the physical infrastructure requirements into a single bundle: enclosures, power, climate control, monitoring, and security. They are designed to be future proof, addressing IT needs today while providing flexibility for tomorrow. For the end user, engineer, or design consultant, the Rittal MDC configurator, a unique online tool, carries out plausibility checks to eliminate errors from the ordering process and ensure smooth running operations. The Rittal LLC solutions design team consolidates the individual requirements from the configurator, preparing a tailored offering for each specific application.

An Adaptable Standalone Solution for The Edge

The RiMatrix Micro Data Center provides the flexibility demanded in the modern industrial world configured for any unique deployment. Built with self-contained climate control subsystems ranging from <1kW to 20kW capacity, these space-saving solutions are documented in detail and can even be viewed prior to installation using augmented reality, making it simple to confirm the Micro Data Center’s spatial feasibility. CFD analyses allow you to visualize and validate the cooling concept designed for the specific Micro Data Center layout.

The Micro Data Center is designed with maximum flexibility, security, and efficiency in mind. This is made possible by cutting-edge climate control technologies developed by Rittal:

Indoor solutions for small to medium applications. Various rack sizes and cooling classes are available, precise-fit and easy to install (no pipework required). Passive cooling with patented hybrid cooling technology, with average energy savings of 30%.*

*Compared with conventional refrigerant-based cooling solutions

Indoor solution for medium to large IT applications. Carefully planned and easily scalable. Cooling is achieved with an air/refrigerant heat exchanger (LCP DX) or air/water heat exchanger (LCP CW). Cooling varies according to capacity utilisation. High cooling performance in a minimal space (1-4 racks).

LCP DX: Ideal for cooling medium and high IT applications.

LCP CW: Extremely high heat loads are transported out of the IT racks via air/water heat exchangers.

Outdoor solutions for up to 5 KW of cooling. Robust and easy to install (no pipework required). Passive cooling with patented hybrid cooling technology, for average energy savings of 30%*.

*Compared with conventional refrigerant-based cooling solutions
