Data Centres solution: APC by Schneider Small and Medium Data Centre Solution Overview

 
 

Value proposition

Main drivers

  • Power and cooling requirements for today's high-density IT equipment cannot be met by legacy data centre cooling
    - 45% of the world's data centres are more than 10 years old
  • Regulatory control & carbon footprint committments are driving a green initiative with focus on efficiency
  • Electrical operation costs have risen to the point of having a material impact on profitability and are now under scrutiny
  • Safety of data is increasingly important as data centre data moves from business critical to life critical
  • Customers are trying to simplify their relationships with vendors - solution and service
  • Virtualisation is decreasing the number of physical servers while increasing the criticality of those servers
  • Virtualisation can dramatically increase data centre PUE (decrease DCIE), if power and cooling are not considered in the project
  • Business competiveness and pent up demand are driving reduced design and build cycle times

 

Solution in brief

  • Schneider Electric will dramatically simplify the process of designing, deploying and operating the world's most predictable, dense and efficient data centre
  • APC by Schneider Electric delivers  complete solutions with high availability, agility and low total cost of ownership (TCO) through standardisation and integrated components


Value proposition

  • Availability: High density capability, Reduced mean time to repair (MTTR), Reduced human error
  • Agility: Deployment speed, Ability to scale, Ability to reconfigure
  • Total Cost of Ownership: Reduced capital cost, Reduced non-energy operating cost, Reduced energy cost
  • Availability, agility, and TCO improvements are made possible by integrating rack, power, security and cooling via the standardised, modular data centre architecture and optimised through integrated management


Differentiation factors

  • Project management for the whole project
  • Assessment of "project ownership" for small and medium data centres
  • Schneider stays with the project after construction

      Other data centre design and build companies "turn over the keys"

  • Best Management Integration - Schneider Electric is the only DCPI company offering total comprehensive management - building automation, IT floor, power quality
  • Integrated DCPI management for small/medium data centres
