Schneider Electric with a focus on prefabricated modular data centre market recently expanded its portfolio of power solutions and Uptime Institute TIER-Ready reviewed designs for the growing data centre industry, especially among cloud and service providers for a faster and easier way to deploy power.
“Prefabricated and Modular data centres are on a growth trajectory as organizations strive to bring business services closer to their constituents,” said Phil Collerton, Chief Revenue Officer, Uptime Institute. “These services must be delivered with the same level of mission critical performance seen in larger data centres, but at a dramatically smaller scale, which can be deployed in a fraction of the time, all without incurring the traditional risk associated with remote infrastructures. The TIER-Ready design review program dramatically simplifies and speeds up the Tier certification process, while reducing costs by as much as 50% to the end-user,”
In a statement, the company said, as part of it’s EcoStruxure for Data Center architecture, TIER-Ready reviewed designs are available as a 90kW Tier II All-in-One module and a 500kW Tier III multi-module solution for 400V regions. The customizable designs feature the latest high efficiency Galaxy VX UPS with Li-Ion battery options, Prisma LV switchboards, and are all EcoStruxure Ready.
Each reference design includes comprehensive technical documentation, schematics, layouts and equipment all reviewed and approved by Uptime Institute. The TIER-Ready design review program has been developed to help improve the process from design to deployment for customers who are pursuing full Tier Certification for their prefabricated modular data centres.
“Cloud and Service Providers, as well as our Enterprise customers, are increasingly seeking modular construction methods to improve speed of deployment, standardization and simplicity, while enabling more predictable and dependable data centre operations.” said Andrew Bradner, Vice President, Prefabricated Modular Data Centers at Schneider Electric.
Bradner added, “With our expanded power portfolio and the release of the TIER-Ready reviewed designs, we continue to reduce deployment times and simplify the way data centres are designed.”
