The BRUNS-PAK Way

Cloud/Data Center Solutions That Are Innovative Modular Scalable Flexible Efficient Cost Effective

Public, Private, Hybrid Solutions. Count on Us for Your Data Center HPC/AI/Edge/Cloud/Colo Computing Integration Needs.

In a world driven by artificial intelligence, high performance compute, technology, cloud/colo, datacenter, edge or “hybrid” solutions are front-and-center in the operations of virtually any organization. With all the changes in technology platforms, it is not surprising that data storage technology is evolving just as rapidly, making “Hybrid” data center solutions more stressful decisions that IT and facilities executives face.

At BRUNS-PAK, we work to relieve that stress.

BRUNS-PAK is a company of facilities and IT professionals who create robust design/build solutions for mission-critical cloud/colo/datacenter/edge solutions that balance ultra-reliability with QoS demands, storage challenges, environmental responsibility, energy efficiency, capex control, and OPEX options. We have a legacy of over 6,000 successful data center projects throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe that have included cloud, colo, onprem, edge, and “Hybrid” solutions.

Mark S. Evanko, Principal, BRUNS-PAK Mark is the principal and one of the original founders of BRUNS-PAK. BRUNS-PAK’s 45+ year/6000+ project experiences in design/building high technology data center projects serve as the basis for the evolution of the ultra-reliable facility. Mr. Evanko continues to actively participate as a BRUNS-PAK project director integrating facilities with information systems in developing technically proficient solutions for the client. Over the years, Mark has chaired BRUNS-PAK’s business partner affiliations with major computer manufacturers and other major Fortune 500 service providers including: Dell, Accenture, IBM, OnX, The Gartner Group, CDW, Converge, Deloitte (Collaborations), AECOM, CBTS, DataSpan, WWT, Carter Validus, Vicom, SGI, Sine Nomine, SBC Consulting, and Cloudify. The business relationships have been founded on providing a technically proficient, ethical, and cost effective consulting service that avails the client to alternative “state of the art” solutions.

A BRUNS-PAK Success Story

The data center industry is being challenged with the deployment of high performance compute (HPC)/artificial intelligence (AI) arrays. The power densities per cabinet have ranged in 2024 from 25 – 100 kW.  The overall power densities per cabinet have exceeded the existing data center MEP capabilities. BRUNS-PAK has addressed and deployed modular scalable “IT/facility” solutions for the evolving HPC/AI data center community.

The Challenge

The data center worldwide community is being impacted by the tremendous increase in demand for artificial intelligence (AI). The AI applications many times translate to high performance compute (HPC) densities of 25/40/60/80/100 kW per rack. The critical function is to optimize the scalable deployment.

The Activity

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the integration of many technologies working together that enable machines to sense, comprehend, act, and learn with human-like levels of intelligence.
  • AI improves business efficiency, profitability, and expansion.
  • 84% of business executives believe they need to use AI to achieve growth objectives.
  • Companies are targeting what “value” means to their business.  That is the focus of AI.
  • AI ultimately translates to tremendous amounts of data processed and being made available instantaneously.
  • Modular/scalable/flexible/energy efficient facility infrastructure designs are being implemented/deployed to meet the growing HPC data center proliferation.
  • Accenture survey “3 out of 4” C suite executives believe if they don’t scale artificial intelligence in the next five (5) years, they risk going out of business.
  • Google purchase: customers who bought A, also bought B, C, D, and E.
  • CVS/Walgreens pharmacy notification of next flu shots, prescriptions, etc.

  • Insurance profiles
  • Waze driving patterns
  • Airline flights/travel
  • Real estate latest cost trends
  • Investment trends
  • Weather maps
  • Satellite locations
  • IBM Watson medical predictions
  • Insurance forecast

The Results

  • Data center designs to accommodate scalable (ie: 25kW rack start to 100kW growth) HPC configurations.
  • HPC designs to support AI and research can be “environmentally friendly”:
    • Non N+1.
    • Non UPS.
    • Mechanical heat rejection optimization.
    • No generator. NOTE: No Tier I applications.
  •  HPC clusters migrating to the “edge”.
  • Benefits of AI:
    • Critical source of business value.
    • Agility and competitive advantage.
    • End to end efficiency.
    • Improved accuracy and decision making.
    • Intelligent offerings.
    • Empowered employees.
    • Superior customer service.
  • AI is exploding and showing an average 3X rate of return when deployed proficiently.

Project #1

BRUNS-PAK’s information technology/architectural/mechanical-electrical-plumbing “process” engaged a Tier I research university with their short/long term high performance compute mission.  In summary BRUNS-PAK was able to deliver an “IT/A/MEP” data center modular, scalable, reliable, flexible superstructure that scaled from 25kW to 75KW per cabinet in an energy efficient manner.  It should be noted that not all HPC infrastructure was required for UPS/generator/reliability support.

Project #2

BRUNS-PAK’s client wanted to understand the short and long term “options/concepts/budget estimates/schedules” associated with their short/long term IT mission of deploying HPC Tier 0/I critical production applications.  The BRUNS-PAK “IT/A/MEP” process was able to develop a comprehensive set of HPC short/long term IT/facility requirements that evaluated total cost of ownership of:
Cloud | Colocation | Enterprise | Disaster Recovery | Network | Hybrid Solutions

Another BRUNS-PAK Success Story

Here’s What it’s all About:
A Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company, with worldwide manufacturing, production and distribution facilities, engaged BRUNS-PAK to develop and design/engineer a global “best practice, state of the art, modular, scalable, flexible solution” for the enterprises emerging demands.  
The Challenge:
The Client’s global operations necessitate the need for IT solutions in often demanding environments. To respond to market demands, these typically require fast-track deployment. BRUNS-PAK was engaged to develop a modular, scalable and flexible solution that could be configured to meet the specific application need utilizing standardized components, suitable for installation in a variety of environments with minimal on-site construction, to provide rapid availability worldwide. 
The Activity:
BRUNS-PAK designed and engineered a self-contained rack enclosure that provides power, cooling, fire protection, BMS and security for the IT hardware that can be configured to meet varying Levels of Reliability. The units leverage existing rack-mounted UPS systems together with available in-row cooling technology. Clean agent fire suppression is provided together with a variety of security system options; ranging from key locks to the latest biometrics. 
The Results:
Working with manufacturers/vendors, BRUNS-PAK developed a ‘best of breed’ non-proprietary modular-scalable cost-effective worldwide solution. The ‘typical’ module can be configured from three to twelve IT racks; with redundancy options from ‘N’, N+1’ to ‘2N’ and capacity from 5kW to 60kW. Additional modules can be added as and when needed for growth. Deployment requires minimal on-site construction; power supply and heat rejection. Units can be installed virtually anywhere; warehouses, office space and on exterior pads.
How it Turned Out
“The cost to deploy this ‘Edge’ solution is less than 40% the cost of the traditional IT solutions deployment”

Provide a prefabricated/pre-assembled modular, scalable self-contained rack enclosure that incorporates Power, Cooling, Fire Protection, BMS, IT Infrastructure and Security that is adaptable to a variety of Levels of Reliability and Redundancy.

‘Drop-and-Go’ solution, with Global availability, suitable for robust environments with minimal local infrastructure modifications that offers a cost effective, repeatable solution with speed of deployment

*A NEMA-4 rated enclosure providing solutions from 5kW to 60kW, with three levels of reliability and redundancy, configurable from 3 to 12 IT rack enclosures.

*A manufactured component that can be ordered / delivered worldwide, that is ‘plug-n-play’ and can be installed in non-Data Center spaces (warehouses, office space, outdoors)
