Riello UPS is proud to protect Sudlows' award-winning data centre with its Multi Sentry Uninterruptible Power Supply system.
Last month the North West based data centre specialist scooped the prestigious Data Centre Solutions' Innovative Data Centre Project of the Year Award 2011 in recognition of Sudlows' unique Data Centre Innovation Pod (DCiP) - one of the most pioneering micro data centre facilities in the UK.
Sudlows has designed and built a fully functional data centre to demonstrate its expertise to both current and potential clients. The 1,000 sq ft facility, costing almost £500,000, was completed back in 2010, and with it, Sudlows has claimed a place as a centre of excellence in the field of data centre design and solutions.
But integral to any successful data centre is the highest quality power protection, and this is where Riello UPS, one of Sudlows' key suppliers, enters the picture.
Sudlows is renowned for advising its clients on the latest in energy and money saving technologies, so with this in mind the company approached Riello UPS to contribute to the project.
Robin Koffler, general manager of Riello UPS (UK), said: "Riello UPS worked closely with Sudlows to organise the many aspects of the UPS installation, commissioning and testing; selecting the100kVA Multi Sentry UPS to illustrate to Sudlows' clients the typical footprint of a UPS.
"The system provides eight minutes of protection when at full load. With Sudlows' usual power requirements using only 20%, the Multi Plus would protect the business for 40 minutes.
"With a continuous supply of conditioned, reliable power ensured by the Riello UPS Multi Sentry, this fully working showroom allows Sudlows' clients to experience state-of-the-art product application and innovation in a functioning data room packed full of the latest technology."
He added: "Riello UPS is pleased to be able to offer an extensive line of environmentally-friendly, energy efficient products that not only meet the most challenging demands of the data centre environment, but also meet the scalability requirements of this growing business sector."
Andy Hirst, projects director for Sudlows, said: "The UPS in a data centre is a critical requirement and one of, if not the most important pieces of kit. "Riello UPS is one of our key preferred suppliers and we have total confidence in their products and services.
"We've always had total support from them throughout all our projects and this is very refreshing. When it comes to UPS products and services, Riello UPS is unbeatable.
"We work with many contractors and suppliers and we are renowned for our quality projects and services. We have to ensure that we work with the best as our reputation in on the line.
"This is why you will see Riello UPS units in the majority of our projects."
