Uptime Institute TIER-Ready design review shortens certification time and reduce costs
Expanded power portfolio up to 1.25MW addresses power needs of large colocations and data centre markets
Broadest portfolio of prefabricated power, cooling and IT designs available in the industry
LONDON, November 5, 2018 /MediaPressRoom/ — Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced its expanded portfolio of EcoStruxure™ Ready prefabricated modular power solutions and Uptime Institute TIER-Ready reviewed reference designs. With the expanded power range Schneider is addressing the demand of the data centre industry, especially among cloud and service providers for a faster and easier way to deploy power. Likewise, Uptime Institute TIER-Ready review program reduces time, cost and simplifies the process for those seeking Tier certification.
Schneider Electric Reference Designs Now Uptime TIER-Ready Reviewed
Part of Schneider Electric’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. 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.
“Prefabricated and Modular data centres are on a growth trajectory as organizations strive to bring business services closer to their constituents. 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,” said Phil Collerton, Chief Revenue Officer, Uptime Institute.
Schneider Electric Expands Power Modules and Skids range
With the prefabricated modular data centre market showing strong growth and increasing demands for more critical power with shorter lead times, Schneider has expanded its range of prefabricated power modules and skids from 625kW up to1.25MW in 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.
“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.” According to Andrew Bradner, Vice President, Prefabricated Modular Data Centers at Schneider Electric. “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.”
