Mon 16 May 2016

Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management and automation, has won the Data Centre Power Product of the Year category at the DCS Awards 2016. The company’s industry leading portfolio of Prefabricated and Micro Data Centre Solutions allows the rapid and cost-effective deployment of infrastructure in any location, unhindered by challenges of distance, space constraints or remote environments.Print

Receiving the award on behalf of Schneider Electric, Data Centre Business Development Director Matthew Baynes said, “We are delighted that our Prefabricated and Micro Data Centre Solutions portfolio has been presented with this prestigious award. It represents a significant endorsement for the continued investment in modular data centre innovation. I’d like to thank the judges at the DCS Awards and in particular, the many data centre professionals and customers that have voted for us.”

Schneider Electric’s Prefabricated configurations include power, cooling and IT modules to provide a flexible approach to data centre infrastructure. The building blocks are factory tested and pre-engineered before being delivered to the customer site as ready-to-deploy modules. By deploying only what’s required customers can reduce initial CapEx outlay, and take a pay-as-you-grow approach to capacity upgrades as business requirements change.


Driven by the increasing volume of data from connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT), Schneider Electric’s Micro Data Centre solutions enable businesses to meet the challenge of Big Data and latency by deploying localized data centres at the edge of networks in order to reduce costs, whilst ensuring high levels of service, reliability and resilience for customer applications. Micro Data Centre solutions are delivered in a single enclosure with integrated power, cooling and management software to support a self-contained, secure computing environment.

Schneider Electric solutions use a standardised modular architecture to reduce complexity and increase speed of deployment. The company has published a comprehensive library of reference designs, which are fully adaptable to a range of customer requirements. Prefabricated solutions can be deployed inside or outside — independently or together — to provide customers with a complete and scalable data centre solution.
