Schneider Electric has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Hyper-convergence Innovation of the year’ category at the SVC Awards 2018.
The shortlisting recognises the company’s HyperPod rack ready data centre system as an enabler of hyper-converged infrastructure solutions; tightly integrating the IT, power, cooling, compute, storage, networking and virtualisation for end-users by allowing integrated systems to be pre-engineered, pre-tested and pre-configured away from site – before being deployed both rapidly and with agility inside the data centre space.
Part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Data Centres architecture, HyperPod is designed to deploy IT in increments of 8 to 12 racks and is the only solution of it’s kind available in the market today.
Its innovative pod architecture is engineered to support all of today’s rack types, with integrated power, cooling, cabling, software management and containment, that enables pre-populated IT racks to be rolled into place – significantly reducing the complexity and installation time associated with traditional infrastructure deployments.
“We’re delighted to have been shortlisted and recognised as both an innovator and enabler of hyper-converged solutions.” said Marc Garner, vice president of Schneider Electric’s IT Division, UK.
“Schneider Electric prides itself on innovation within the technology and data centre spaces. HyperPod enables Cloud and Service providers to accelerate deployment times and save cost for their customers, while delivering the predictability and availability that today’s business applications require.”
Schneider Electric’s HyperPod solution was launched in the UK in November 2017, and is available immediately.
