Schneider Electric has won ‘Data Centre Design and Build Product of the Year’ at the Electrical Review Excellence Awards 2019, for its EcoStruxure Ready Hyperpod system.
This year’s Electrical Review Excellence Awards 2019, in association with Data Centre Review, expanded its range of categories in order to showcase the best from two dynamic and interlinked sectors.
Schneider Electric’s award-winning HyperPod, is a rack-ready system designed to deploy IT in increments of eight to 12 racks. The company says its solution addresses the demand for greater compute capacity and flexible data centre architectures in today’s world.
HyperPod’s pod-style architecture with integrated power, cooling, cabling, software management and containment, is engineered to support all of today’s rack types, including open compute, and enables pre-populated IT to be rolled into place, significantly reducing the complexity and installation time associated with traditional infrastructure deployments.
“I’m absolutely delighted to accept this award on behalf of Schneider Electric,” says Marc Garner, Vice President, Secure Power Division, UK and Ireland. “HyperPod is changing the way data centres are designed and how IT is being deployed. For many customers, including cloud and colocation service providers, HyperPod meets the demand for an agile and scalable data centre solution, enabling them to add capacity quickly and without complex integration work. By reducing deployment times, making them up to 21% faster, its innovative architecture can also deliver 15 to 20% savings in time and costs over traditional approaches.”
