Optimal data center solutions facilitate faster implementation and simple specification, streamlining the process of designing, specifying, installing, and managing the increasingly complex physical infrastructure necessary to optimize your data center.


Data centers are constantly transforming to keep up with the demands of efficiently delivering voice, data, video, and security applications. Optimal and our partners have integrated physical to logical architectures into these environments to increase business agility and network performance, while providing interoperability and security to establish an enhanced infrastructure design that meets private cloud and enterprise requirements in today’s intelligent data centers.


Our data center solutions enable physical to logical architecture integration, and deliver robust, scalable physical infrastructures that address:


Data Center Designing Process:

Optimal Technology provides a complete physical data centre with core elements including cooling, raised flooring, UPS, generators, racks, fire separation systems, water detection and regular maintenance services.

Cooling Systems:
The key factors in any data centre include the temperature and the amount of water in the air. Too much of either can result in huge losses for an organization; valuable equipment such as servers and storage must be maintained in precise conditions. The equipment we install ensures the air temperature and humidity levels are kept to manufacturer's specifications.

All electrical equipment produces thermal energy, and the accumulated heat load produced by data processing equipment can be significant. Air conditioning is normally required to maintain the environment within these limits. A closely controlled environment produces good working conditions to the benefit of both machines and operating staff. In Data Centre, it is more common to install modular, self-contained conditioners which sit on the raised floor.

Raised Flooring Systems
A raised floor provides space for the massive amounts of cable required in a Data Center, and can simplify the process of adding and moving equipment. Another benefit of a raised floor is cooling: cool air can be pushed under raised floors and directed at servers and other heat-sensitive equipment.

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) Systems
In any critical infrastructure the need to maintain operation of equipment is paramount to avoid data loss, business interruption and other consequences. Typically we install Online UPS systems in most data center facilities to ensure a continuous supply of power irrespective of the availability of utility power.


Fire Suppression System
We supply fire suppression systems that are equipped with specialized FM200 gas. Environmentally friendly and non-toxic, FM200 poses no risk to human health and no significant reduction in oxygen levels. FM200 gas is effective within 10 seconds of discharge so that fires are rapidly extinguished before they spread.


Environment Monitoring Systems


Environmental Monitors enable you to keep an eye on remote conditions in critical  for environmental factors including temperature, humidity, airflow, light, sound, door position, power and much more. Get alerts for abnormal conditions via Email, SMS & SNMP traps.


Maintaining a stable temperature and humidity is critical to IT system reliability. Temperature sensors should be placed on individual racks to measure the heat generated by equipment and near the air-conditioning system’s vents to measure efficiency. A significant temperature change could be disastrous for a datacenter or server room due to the sensitivity of server equipment.

A datacenter that is too dry will result in the buildup of static electricity on the systems. Too humid and corrosion will start slowly damaging your equipment, resulting in permanent equipment failures.

The damage that results from leaking or sweating pipes, air-conditioning, clogged drains, ruptured storage tanks, temperature or humidity extremes can be absolutely devastating. Water sensors should be placed at the lowest point on the floor, near air-conditioners and near walls that feature water pipes, junctions and bends.


Should a building ventilation system fail, temperatures in a datacenter or server room can rise quickly, impeding server performance and possibly leading to overheating shutdowns or hardware damage. Set up the smoke alarms directly into the climate monitoring and alerting system.


Almost any datacenter or server room is equipped with batteries that kick in when the main power supply goes out. However, knowing when this occurs is another matter. Monitor voltage presence and arrange for an orderly shutdown of IT equipment in case of loss of power.


Dry Contact
Dry Contact sensors can connect to burglar alarms, fire alarms or any application that requires monitoring. Dry contact sensors are user definable and can be used to detect many different inputs such as UPS status, security systems and air-conditioning status


The internal light level sensor of the Senturion is great for ensuring that your datacenter  or server room remains void of personnel at night or other times of the day when you expect that the light levels of the room will be pitch black or near dim. Setting a nighttime alert to let you know when someone kicks on the lights at night could help catch an intruder.


Motion sensors can detect unintentional wrongdoing by personnel and/or unauthorized or forced entry into the datacenter or server room with malicious intent.

  Doors (Door Open/Close)
Dry contact sensors detect the opening and closing of a door. Sensors should be installed near main entry ways and included on the doors of servers and cabinets. Managers can configure alerts to account for unusual activities.

Network Architecture:
While businesses demand flexibility to support new switching technologies and application Requirements, it is still critical to design a data center with well planned network architectures. As the primary physical infrastructure technology and go-to-market partner for industry leading network providers, Optimal develops physical layer infrastructures to optimize their solutions.

Consolidating Operations:
Data Center Managers are being tasked with more involvement in business operations. Almost every building HVAC, lighting, security, and communications) uses some form of IT networking for management and control. Optimal’s innovative approach to consolidating these systems is the Unified Operations Center (UOC). The UOC provides state-of-the-art IP-based information monitoring and control over all vital building systems through one integrated, aligned, unified, and intelligent infrastructure.
By combining and integrating traditionally segmented operations like security, network, and facility into a single room, the UOC allows data to be shared across a spectrum of applications, improving operational awareness and response, resulting in greater operational efficiencies and performance.
Optimizing Storage Networking:
Whether deploying today’s best-in-class storage networks (NAS or SAN) or preparing for tomorrow’s converged I/O fabrics, your need for a high-performance, highly-agile physical infrastructure becomes even more critical. With Optimal, your physical infrastructure will be able to grow as your data storage and information exchange needs grow.
Your data center will be agile enough to easily implement network reconfigurations as your business needs change, ensuring you have suitable bandwidth for proper application performance.

Demands of
Computing and Processing Power:

Server virtualization has increased the utilization of computing and processing power in today’s data center. Optimal solutions for server virtualization ensure that the data center power and cooling delivered meets the physical infrastructure demands while optimizing space utilization. This solution will result in improved uptime and availability to mitigate risk.
