Nexcess’ Southfield data center is a total of 16,000 square feet, with 12,000 square feet segmented off for data center operations. Power is supplied by DTE, which delivers an estimated 3 megawatts of total power to the facility, which is fed through dual transformers at 4,000 amps and 480 volts. Power is then distributed by Liebert distribution units with a mix of A, B and tertiary power options are available. A dual Liebert UPS system allows the power distribution system to allocate power at N, N+1 or N+2 redundancy configurations.

The cooling systems are configured in an N+x format. Liebert dry systems deliver a continuous 250 tons of cooling to the facility. Cooling is then distributed in an N+1 redundancy configuration, with each room receiving anywhere from 22 to 30 tons.
