Schneider Electric Announces New StruxureOn Digital Data Centre Service for UK & Ireland
Tue 1 Nov 2016
Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and automation, today introduced StruxureOn™, a digital service that connects data centre physical infrastructure assets to the Schneider Electric cloud enabling the delivery of simplified and faster services.
With real-time visibility into system performance, maintenance and service requirements via mobile app, StruxureOn’s data-driven analytics can proactively advise of potential failures, fundamentally improving the ability to service critical equipment prior to failure.
As part of the digital service, Schneider Electric’s Service Bureau personnel is readily available to remotely troubleshoot an issue or, in cases that can’t be addressed remotely, dispatch a field service representative armed with the necessary information and equipment to quickly resolve the issue and minimise downtime.
Schneider Electric’s Service Bureau acts as a ‘second set of eyes’ providing around the clock incident monitoring so that data centre and facility managers can rest assured that immediate action will be taken to curtail the impact on data centre operations.
IoT-powered Data Centres
“Today, as data centre managers face tightening budgets, growing customer demands on data centre performance, and an increasingly competitive market, optimising operations while staying within financial confines has become a significant challenge,” said
Henrik Leerberg, Global Director of ITD Digital Services, Schneider Electric. “With StruxureOn, Schneider Electric is harnessing the power of IoT to give data centre and facility managers the insights, tools and support they need to proactively predict and prevent incidents and system downtime.”
Schneider Electric is bringing IoT to the data centre with StruxureOn, optimising the way that data is analyzed, stored and delivered as actionable information to improve decision-making around data centre maintenance, uptime and incident management.
“Cloud services and IoT are sweeping through industry, with major digital transformations under way at many of the world’s largest corporations,” said Rhonda Ascierto, Research Director, Datacenter Technologies, 451 Research. “The IoT initiative at Schneider Electric appears to be wide-reaching and StruxureOn is a move that could fundamentally change the DCIM software market as well as the data centre services engagement model. Schneider Electric seems positioned to be an early leader with the scale to achieve long-term success.”
