Vertiv partners with you to find your customer’s edge, equips you with the latest mission critical IT equipment, and ensures our partnership will be easy and profitable.
No Degree Left Behind
Application continuity is maintained during cooling system loss, as integrated and independently controlled back-up ventilation enables IT asset operation without interruption.
Ships in Days, Installs in Hours
Designed for easy deployment, in many different variations, fully assembled at the factory, the VRC-S Edge-Ready Micro Data Center can be up and running at your IT Edge location in a matter of days.
Adaptive performance reduces operating costs
The integrated IT cooling adapts the performance to the IT load and leads in combination with the built-in hot-cold cooling air separation to highest energy efficiency and optimized operating costs.
Extend the Life of Your IT Equipment
Your IT equipment will perform seamlessly for years to come. The 3.5 kW cooling precisely provides cooling air temperature of your choice.
Always-On Power Continuity
Maintain operation though utility power outages, as the factory-integrated UPS powers the entire system, including cooling and IT assets, for application continuity.
Smart Monitoring and Control
Remote monitoring and control of the complete system is included, and pre-wired in the factory. The intelligent and pre-programmed rPDU ensures the full visibility of the system incl. UPS and cooling.
There's no need for constant on-site monitoring, as you'll be able to access, control, and manage your micro data center from wherever you are, through a single IP address.
