Free Form® provides unprecedented freedom to execute moves and changes and facilitates the swap out of complete racks, in a live, fully operational data centre. This capability saves enormous cost and time. The ground breaking Free Form® Solution enables facility management to roll racks into or out of an operational row, at any position along the row. Quick, cabinet / rack change-over is easily achieved. Pre-configured racks can be introduced in a minute fraction of the time usually taken up with such a task. Importantly, there is no disturbance to overhead infrastructure such as containment for power and data cabling or Aisle Cocooning panels. All of this critical infrastructure is carried on full span Cannon Free Form® edge beams which run along the full length of the row independent of the racks. There is no limit to the row length.
Free Form® reduces Data centre build cost and reduces up front planning and design time. In addition important financial savings occur during daily operation of the data centre. Moves and changes are achieved with much reduced complexity and enhanced speed, whilst Cold Aisle, Hot Aisle air separation is preserved by the Free Form® Aisle Cocooning infrastructure.
