In recent years, Smartdc has grown considerably, and the data center is constantly being expanded. The power supply must evolve in line to make future expansion possible as well.
The power supply has a vital function for the operation of the data center. Therefore, Smartdc started looking for a total supplier of well-coordinated solutions that can be integrated. Due to the project’s complexity, the assignment of project management to the supplier was also a wish. This way, the implementation time could be kept as short as possible to minimize the risks to the availability of the data center activities.
The electricity costs make up a large part of the total costs of the data center. Improving the energy efficiency of the infrastructure was an essential point for attention for Schneider Electric.
The components of the total solution:
The Galaxy VX UPS ensures that the power supply is running continuously. In a power outage, the UPS system can keep the entire data center up and running for 20 minutes. This is more than enough time for the generators to start up. In addition, the Galaxy VX is a UPS that is also very effective and efficient with a low load. Smartdc is always on.
In addition to supplying the hardware, the entire project management of this complex project was taken up and implemented by Schneider Electric. As a result, Smartdc had a single point of contact and was completely relieved. Due to good planning, the project was implemented successfully within time and budget.
