Global data center solutions vendor Schneider Electric has announced the final deployment phase of a modular edge data center solution for a global data center services company based in London, at Infinity’s Romford North colocation data center campus.
Infinity’s Romford North colocation data center is purpose built for high density, high performance computing platforms and large-scale cloud providers. It has 107,600 sq. ft. (10,000m2) of technical space and 15MW of highly resilient net IT capacity expandable to 20MW. The data center also offers carrier-neutral connectivity, including BT Openreach, Colt, euNetworks, Level 3, Verizon, Virgin Media and Zayo.
The new data center site will host a distributed cloud service which requires regional edge data centers 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 would provide the highest levels of reliability and efficiency in this application.
“We are delighted to be working with Schneider Electric in this collaborative approach during the next phase of Infinity’s incredibly successful Romford data center,” said John Hall, sales and marketing director, Infinity. “The market needs large scale agility to drive business performance and this perfectly responds to customer requirements.”
Schneider Electric’s standardized, factory engineered data center modules would combine “predictable performance with fast deployment, flexibility and scalability.” The new data center setup enables global enterprises to build, deploy and manage data center requirements in a Tier IV UTI accredited site with 15MW of available IT capacity.
“The partnership with Infinity enables data center solutions which can be scaled to changing load demands of our customers worldwide,” said Adrian Barlow, ITB & DC Application Centre Director, Schneider Electric. “With global digital transformation continuing its acceleration, the almost instant demand for more IT capacity in larger increments is becoming critical to technology decisions.”
