Schneider Electric has announced it will be showcasing two new EcoStruxure Ready physical infrastructure solutions at Data Centre World London 2019. The first to be launched during the show is an innovative new UPS solution for small data centre and edge computing environments, enabling customers to increase resilience, drive energy efficiency and minimise downtime from critical power issues. Live demonstrations of the solution will be available on stand D630.
During the course of the event, which takes place on the 12thand 13thMarch at Excel London, the company will also showcase an on-site demo of a liquid cooling solution and will unveil live demonstrations of their HyperPod architecture. This will be the first time that HyperPod is available in its physical form at a UK event.
HyperPod is a rack ready system is designed to deploy IT in increments of 8 to 12 racks. Its pod architecture is engineered to support all of today’s rack types, with integrated power, cooling, cabling, software management and containment. It enables pre-populated IT racks to be rolled into place, which significantly reduces the complexity and installation time associated with traditional infrastructure deployments.
“At Data Centre World, Schneider Electric will explore critical innovation within edge computing, AI, and the highly anticipated emergence of 5G,” said Marc Garner, Vice President, IT Division, UK and Ireland. “Data centres have become the backbone of today’s smart and IoT enabled world, a transformational driver for businesses. As more companies adapt to this distributed ecosystem, it presents key challenges for owners and operators – especially those utilising compute intensive applications such as AVI and Blockchain.”
James Simonelli, Senior Vice President (SVP) Emerging Businesses will be discussing ‘The Digital Transformation of Data Centres’ on the 12thMarch at 11:15am. Taking place in the Data Centres of The Future Theatre, the session will explore how today’s hybrid IT requirements have evolved via the adoption of new technologies including liquid cooling, micro data centres, prefabrication and cloud-based management software. What are the key considerations in this growing and complex environment, and how can companies become ready for the imminent arrival of ultra fast, low latency 5G networks.
Other components of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Data Centers architecture will also be available for demonstration during the event. They include EcoStruxure Ready micro data centre solutions, PDU with customisation capability, Lithium-ion UPS, InRow cooling and the company’s Cloud-based software, EcoStruxure IT Expert.
