  • Data centre disaster recovery to support business continuity

    Recent adverse weather conditions across the UK have once again highlighted how factors we cannot control can disrupt business continuity. With 80% of businesses affected by a major incident, either never re-opening, or closing within 18 months, it is worrying to see that only 35% of SMEs have a comprehensive disaster recovery plan in place. While Disaster Recovery (DR) is, at least theoretically, not a difficult process, it requires a sensible and diligent IT manager to devise a clear strategy and plan within the business.

    To learn how to plan disaster recovery for your organisation, visit IP EXPO Europe at the ExCel London on the 8-9 October 2014.

  • Prefabricated data centre

    Schneider Electric recently announced it had won the bid from Baidu to build an M1 containerised (prefabricated) data centre with Schneider Electric’s prefabricated data centre solutions. As Baidu’s first prefabricated data centre project, the eco-friendly data centre will feature fast deployment, low input and high capability operation from standardised to modular to prefabricated data centre in the age of cloud computing and big data. This project not only meets the needs of Baidu’s rapidly expanding business, but also sets an example for the future of China’s data centre construction.

  • What do today’s data centres expect of their UPS?

    UPSs that effectively protect their critical load from mains power failures and disturbances are essential to modern data centres. To successfully fulfil this role in today’s business conditions, they must do so while offering near-perfect availability, high efficiency and easy scalability.
