Vertiv SmartRow DCR


Vertiv SmartRow DCR

Efficiency. Capacity. Availability. Control.

The SmartRow DCR is a self-contained, modular datacenter designed to simplify IT deployments in indoor spaces. With capacities up to 10 racks, integrating cooling, UPS, power distribution, fire suppression, and backup ventilation, the SmartRow™ enables standardization of complete micro datacenter configurations across multiple locations. The degree of factory integration maximizes installation speed while minimizing cost. Why build out a datacenter space, when you can have one delivered?

SmartRow DCR is a fully-integrated data center infrastructure solution equipped with power, thermal management and infrastructure management and monitoring solution It is designed for indoor environments such as small and medium sized data centers or computer rooms. SmartRow™ DCR can store 19’’ rack mount IT hardware equipment such as server, storage and networking devices. It features cabinets, closed aisle cooling system, power distribution, and centralized infrastructure monitoring system. An optimized data center infrastructure leads to lower CAPEX / OPEX and higher reliability.

Faced with these challenges, IT and data center managers are seeking infrastructure solutions for smaller spaces that provide:

  • Fully integrated, standalone systems that don’t require expensive room
  • upgrades
  • Simplicity in design and deployment so systems can be up and running
  • quickly and easily expanded as needed
  • Higher operational, space and energy efficiencies
  • Optimal systems availability to ensure continuity of new and future IT
  • equipment
  • Flexibility and a clear growth path for capacity growth


The SmartRow solution can be implemented in just weeks. It allows you to easily deploy and effectively manage an integrated IT infrastructure without being limited by building systems, such as fire suppression and cooling.

It is available up to 10-rack configurations for up to 20kW of total capacity, allowing you the flexibility to start small and expand over time.  This space-saving and cost-effective solution combines the industry’s finest power, precision cooling and infrastructure management technologies in a sealed environment – meaning you can place it in virtually any conditioned space.

Each SmartRow offering integrates industry best practices in data center design and operations including:

  • Hot air and cold air separation
  • Cold air containment
  • High-efficiency dedicated cooling
  • Space-savings, small-footprint
  • Modularity for flexibility and easier expansion
  • Integrated monitoring and control to optimize efficiency in planning and management
  • Unique local service for design audits, configuration
  • support, installation support, maintenance and repair
  • High availability and high efficiency UPS
  • Integrated fire suppression

A simple solution designed to expand IT capacity when you don’t have the luxury of more data center space.

The SmartRow solution is ideally suited for environments where dedicated IT room improvements are not practical or cost effective. It is the perfect solution for spaces not designed to be IT environments.  And it can be placed unobtrusively into work spaces.

No fire suppression system upgrades to the room are needed since fire suppression is integrated into the solution. No dedicated room cooling is necessary, and it can work in a non-raised floor environment.

This space-saving solution integrates the industry’s finest and most efficient infrastructure technologies all within a single row. It is well suited to serve as a primary data center or a separate disaster recovery solution.
