Schneider Electric is set to announce new data centre solutions at Data Centre World in London on March the 15th 2017. Speaking on behalf of the Schneider, Arun Shenoy, vice president ITB, Schneider Electric UK comments: “Data Centre World London is going to be an exciting event for Schneider Electric. We’re looking forward to sharing these latest innovations with the industry, as well as hosting a number of thought leadership keynote speeches that demonstrate our Edge Computing, Data Centre physical infrastructure and Cooling capabilities.”
Lead by Rob McKernan, senior vice president, Global IT Channels, Schneider Electric, Data Centres in the Cloud and at the Edge, will explore the latest challenges surrounding the migration of virtualised applications to public and private clouds, as growing costs and tightening budgets make it increasingly difficult for companies to keep their data ‘on-site’. Bandwidth intensive content and data usage are adding pressure to the availability of IT networks, and sharpened government regulations on data and security, combined with the convergence of IT architectures are combining to form a new hybrid computing ecosystem comprised of cloud data centres, collocation and hosting facilities, edge computing and industrial applications. The presentation will take place at 11:20 on Wednesday 15th March in the Data Centres of the Future Theatre.
The second keynote, ‘Cooling to maximise value for the Cloud’, lead by John Nieman, Director of Product Management, Cooling Solutions at Schneider Electric, will take place at 14:15 on Wednesday the 15th March 2017 in the Data centre Design and Build & Physical Security Theatre.
This session will preview the next generation of air economisation, highlighting the major developments in efficiency improvement through a modular designed heat exchanger. The new technology offers data centre owners and administrators the scope to reduce overall expense and maximise available capacity while enhancing availability to deliver the maximum value for the cloud.
In November 2016, the company also launched StruxureOn, a digital service that harnesses the power of the IoT to connect data centre physical infrastructure assets to the Schneider Electric Cloud. The remote monitoring service enhances infrastructure performance by providing greater visibility and system analytics, which in turn proactively predict and prevent downtime by alerting IT managers to potential failures and incidents in real-time. Demonstrations will be available on the Schneider Electric stand.
