Schneider Electric Completes Portable, On-Site Data Center
As a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Barcelona, Spain, Sagrada Família needed to upgrade its small server room to a more robust data center, allowing site operators to better manage the church’s security and effectively control the millions of visitors that come to the site each year.
In addition, Sagrada Família continues a long history of transformation through an ongoing, complex, construction project, therefore building a new data center within the building was not an option. The church needed a resilient and flexible data center that could respond to the continually evolving construction process, while also maintaining a high level of security and protection. Additionally, because the data center construction could not happen on site in the construction zone, portability was key in enabling Sagrada Família to easily move the data center to the site and accommodate changes in the construction zones over time.
To meet these unique needs, Schneider Electric designed and manufactured a customized, prefabricated and portable data center. The module was delivered on site with the racks, UPS, power distribution, cooling and management pre-installed and ready for deployment. The module enclosure was designed for durability and security, with electrical and mechanical connections that can be easily disconnected for mobility services for the data center module and interior infrastructure components.
