Data Centre Cooling

The Oper8 Global Micro is designed with a unique air conditioning system. The self-contained air conditioning unit does not require any pipework or external moto-condensing units as it is all built into the indoor unit.

Not only does this reduce the cost and speed of deployment, but it also increases security. Less external components mean less risk to mitigate.

UPS System

Oper8 Global offers a great selection of rack-mounted UPS systems from well-established, industry-leading manufacturers.

Systems are designed to suit a resilient infrastructure and offer a broad power range.

Rack Fully Customisable

Like most conventional IT racks, the Oper8 Micro DC uses 19” rack rails to accommodate standard Data Centre Hardware. To maximise efficiency of the smaller footprint, it is possible to add a further 6U to the side of the rails to mount switches, EMS, Fire Panels etc vertically. In total, an additional 12U can be supported using the rails.

Fire Detection & Suppression

Protect your environment by optioning a fire detection and suppression system. Available from 1U high, the tiny device can detect fire using an intelligent smoke aspirating system and extinguish any threat by the inbuilt suppression system.

A range of suppression mediums is available to mitigate a fire risk to your IT estate.

Environmental Monitoring

Let Oper8 Global’s EMS and DCIM systems monitor the environment to mitigate risk and keep you informed as to what is going on 24/7 where ever you are.

Not only is the environment monitored, but additional hardware (UPS/Fire etc.) is also able to be monitored, providing customers with an excellent overview of their IT estate in real-time, anywhere in the world.

Rack Mounted PDUs

Supply your compute with Zero U rack-mounted PDUs in the rear-mounted vertical brackets provided in every Nano DC. PDUs can be provided to suit global power requirements, a host of plugs to suit any input socket and a diverse offering of compute receptacles to power any IT hardware you require.

PDUs offer so much more than power. Outlet power-up sequencing protects against inrush current overload and allows users to define equipment boot-up order and timing, while billing-grade outlet level
metering provides detailed equipment level power data. Remote outlet on/off switching for complete protection, control in critical environments, and so much more.


Introducing Oper8 Global’s Nano Data Centre solutions – small in size, big on performance.

The innovative Oper8 Global Nano DC solution is flexible to suit a diverse range of applications, indoor or out. Using a modular approach, the Nano DC can be scaled as budget or requirement allows offering an extremely cost-effective way to manage your IT estate.

Nano DC

Oper8 Global NanoDC

Mission critical IT, Network, Compute and IoT platforms come in many different sizes – however, all them have something in common – their mission critical nature.

Complementing cloud solutions with on-premise infrastructure is a natural fit for many organisations who require:

  • Local hyperconverged IT platforms
  • The need to maintain existing applications or business systems locally – whether they might work in the cloud or not
  • Low latency applications
  • Local data storage
  • Ablity to maintain and support critical network nodes, including key PoE supplies in the network
  • Local IoT data processing and aggregation before dispatching to cloud based analytics platforms
  • A distributed mesh of local data centre capacity

A Nano Data Centre, or NanoDC, is a purpose-built data centre comprising a single IT rack, with fully integrated systems typical of larger data centre facilities. Oper8’s NanoDCs include integrated power protection, cooling, monitoring and optional fire detection and suppression.

What our customers are saying


Oper8 Global’s CloudBox solution was the perfect choice for Bennett + Bennett. After years of using portable hard drives, we were looking for a solution that allowed us to access our data in a single, global namespace, along with the security, backup, and encryption that CloudBox offers, as the costs of cyber insurance continue to rise. We love finding technology teams as passionate about their work as we are.

Mark Billsborough
Managing Director

If the worst happened and Gadens came under cyber-attack, the risk of an attacker exposing our data and that of our clients has been reduced dramatically due to the CipherTrust solution from Oper8 Global and Thales. It’s a world-leading solution that Gadens puts its trust in.

Robert Feldman

Data centres are complex regardless of size and capacity. Oper8 Global has the expertise to right-size the solution to my needs and is able to handle the total solution.

Chris G
Business Management Consultant

There aren’t many data centre teams that can take on and meet the challenge of extreme density HPC solutions. Delivering 115kW per rack … Oper8 Global has met the challenge.
