. The new data centre will host a distributed cloud service which requires regional edge data centres to meet real-time latency, high performance and data sovereignty requirements. Ensuring consistency of design, delivery and service management are key elements for lights-out, always-on infrastructure in multiple locations. The Schneider Electric modular solution provides the highest levels of reliability and efficiency in this application.
Schneider Electric’s standardised, factory engineered data centre modules combine predictable performance with fast deployment, flexibility and scalability. The collaboration with Infinity enables global enterprises to build, deploy and manage data centre requirements in a Tier IV UTI accredited site with 15MW of available IT capacity.
Adrian Barlow, ITB & DC application centre director at Schneider Electric, explained: “The partnership with Infinity enables data centre solutions which can be scaled to changing load demands of our customers worldwide. With global digital transformation continuing its acceleration, the almost instant demand for more IT capacity in larger increments is becoming critical to technology decisions.”
John Hall, Infinity’s sales and marketing director, said: “We are delighted to be working with Schneider Electric in this collaborative approach during the next phase of Infinity’s successful Romford data centre. The market needs large scale agility to drive business performance and this perfectly responds to customer requirements.”
Infinity’s Romford North site is purpose built for high density, high performance computing platforms and large scale cloud providers. As one of the most prestigious data centres in Europe, it has 10,000m2 of technical space and 15MW of highly resilient net IT capacity expandable to 20MW. The data centre also offers carrier-neutral connectivity, including BT Openreach, Colt, euNetworks, Level 3, Verizon, Virgin Media and Zayo.
