ZI-ARGUS has the proven skills, in-depth experience, and established reputation for getting a diverse range of data centres up and running.
Today, everyone needs data services, whether it is for their mobile phones, internet access, or network connectivity. Rural farmers to suburban families to high-tech robotic distribution centres rely on the services provided by data centres all over the world. Twenty-four hours a day. Seven days a week, 365 days a year. These data centres in turn demand a reliable infrastructure that operates and is well-managed to ensure that data flows are smooth and seamless. Designing, planning, and implementing every facet of the data centre infrastructure operations is where ZI-ARGUS shines
For over 25 years, we have established ourselves as a leading independent system integrator across the industrial sector. We customise solutions by combining the latest products from the leading automation and control component manufacturers and utilising our precise engineering experience and understanding to meet customers’ needs and wants. Data centres across Asia-Pacific that provide vital services locally and globally have now come to rely on our detailed attention, flexibility, and commitment to excellence.
Data centres require complex and critical management of their infrastructure. Most data centres must run continuously all day, every day, and they must be able to withstand not only constant use, but also a range of events, planned and unexpected. Data flows cannot stop for scheduled systems maintenance or because of torrential typhoons.
Most people think of state-of-the-art data centres in terms of the latest computer and telecommunications technology. But none of that technology can function to their maximum effectiveness and efficiency without the infrastructure operating models that ZI-ARGUS can provide.
In addition to the equipment needed for the fundamental delivery of data services, the data centre facilities must be structurally sound. Whether a multi-storied complex or a single room, data centres require a consistent environment, including:
Any deviations or interruptions in temperature, power, water, or other utilities and their effective operations could have catastrophic impacts on a data centre. ZI-ARGUS has the comprehensive, technical know-how to design and capture events for each unique subsystem to provide a single view of the entire facility, creating the most optimal and functioning architecture for data centre management.
Being well-built is only the beginning for successful data centre operation. Smooth, continuous operations are key. This requires each system to be monitored and controlled for optimal efficiencies. This includes:
ZI-ARGUS has the detailed knowledge to analyse each data centre’s specific needs to determine the best approach for continuous operations. For example, depending on requirements, resources, and budget, some data centres have varying redundancy models and may require only some additional components for select systems, such as a supplemental power source, while others must have a duplication of every component in every system. This is the same for the systems ZI-ARGUS designs and implements.
To fully leverage a responsive infrastructure for any data centre, smooth oversight and management must be in place as well. This means that at every stage, for every system, there must be intuitive, easily executable controls that provide the necessary information for every function or functional area, calibrated to notify the necessary parties with the appropriate alerts and alarms.
ZI-ARGUS has in-depth knowledge to ensure that the most optimal automation or operational systems are implemented, utilising the most advanced technologies and experienced engineers to deliver a system needed for data centre technicians to monitor operations from every angle.
Enterprise data centres and commercial data centre operators have their own unique management requirements to differentiate themselves in their markets. Each specific data centre has its own special demands that need to be understood, designed, and agreed, including variances from dedicated facilities for single enterprises to disaster recovery sites and co-location sites that host many enterprises.
ZI-ARGUS offers the same meticulous, renowned attention and commitment when conducting:
Our experts and engineers have decades of experience with a knowledge base spanning numerous technologies integral to designing data centre operations solutions. This comprehensive skillset is the foundation of our engineering consultancy service. Our data centre customers rely on us to provide the right solution, complete with a methodological approach and recommended technology to invest in and implement.
Our engineering consultants design for optimum performance, redundancy, and scalability to meet our customer’s visions. As a testimony to the quality and care of our work, these designs often become adopted region-wide for all their facilities. Alternatively, customers rely on us to learn and implement their international standard designs, looking after any localisation requirements.
With broad construction and data centre project experience, our project management office provides a standardised approach, while fulfilling multiple stakeholders’ criteria. From construction companies, contractors, and vendors to each specific department involved on the end user side, we oversee every aspect of our design and planning. All vital data is connected and relayed to our centralised system for projects that are completed on time and on budget.
Testing and handover are critical events in data centre projects. Flexibility and adaptability are essential, as schedules must be met, but not without compromising quality and execution. Our main goal is to ensure that management and control systems function flawlessly and that the customer fully understands every aspect through onsite witness testing, effective education, and thorough operational procedure manuals.
Our national services team provide around-the-clock support and preventative maintenance services. We offer monthly, quarterly, and annual contracts while providing value and flexibility to adjust our services to meet customer demands whenever required.
