Central to the T4 Mini Data Centre is Cannon Technologies’ ServerSmart cabinet, which provides the perfect environment for the universal housing of all kinds of 19-inch rack mountable equipment, as well as power distribution units (PDUs) and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).

  • 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. In this article, Kenny Green, technical support manager at Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd (UPS Ltd), a Kohler company, looks at how available UPS topology allows data centre operators to meet these exacting requirements

  • 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.

  • DatacenterDynamics Converged London – The open-minded data centre event

    19-20 November, London ExCel


    Driving performance and efficiency in any organisation that relies upon complex mission-critical ICT infrastructure is a major challenge. It requires multi-skilled professionals who need to understand ‘the data centre’ from an organisation’s many viewpoints, and who are adept at cross-discipline collaboration in order to drive effective results.

  • 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.

  • New prefabricated solutions are changing the data centre market

    Get the full story on the next evolution in design and procurement

    Today nearly all businesses depend on technology to enable day?to?day as well as critical operations. This combined with increasing economic pressures, sustainability concerns, and energy costs is driving changes in the way data centres are deployed. Our broad portfolio of prefabricated solutions delivers the speed and efficiency to relieve these pressures.


  • New white paper details practical considerations for implementing prefabricated data centres

    Implementing prefabricated data centres results in well understood benefits, such as speed of deployment, predictability, scalability and lifecycle cost. However, many of the practical considerations when deploying prefab infrastructure are less well known. Understanding the unique aspects of data centre projects is crucial to avoiding delays, unnecessary costs and, possibly, inefficient operations.

  • Supplying mission critical power to data centres

    For any data centre, a reliable power supply is, of course, key. Without electrical power, transactions simply cannot take place and the cost of these lost transactions can escalate to many millions of pounds per hour. Clint Noble of Finning Power Systems explains

  • The perils of ignoring data centre load testing

    Dave Wolfenden, the director of Mafi Mushkila, a vendor agnostic leading provider of data centre related services, examines why - despite the fact that testing a data centre prior to formal handover to the client is a normal part of the construction process - few IT professionals tend to look at the testing process that ultimately can affect the reliability of the facility

  • Practical considerations for implementing prefabricated data centres

    Understanding the unique aspects of prefab vs traditional data centre deployments is vital to avoiding delay, cost and inefficiency, say Wendy Torell and Barry Rimmler of Schneider Electric’s Data Centre Science Centre

  • Advanced fibre optic technologies enable power savings for data centres

    Network data communications has evolved rapidly from 'high-speed' gigabit (Gb) Ethernet local area networks (LANs) to the integration of cloud-based information technology (IT) and data streams demanding literally terabytes (TB) of data. Moreover, according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) forecast, internet protocol (IP) traffic on a global basis will triple over the next five years, reaching over 120 exabytes (EB) per month. Erin Byrne and Mike Tryson from TE Connectivity explain
