Broadcaster and telecoms giant Sky has rolled out a data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) solution across its UK data centre estate. The project was awarded to and led by leading data centre specialists Keysource, who were chosen in partnership with Schneider Electric.
StruxureWare for Data Centers DCIM platform was chosen to deliver a range of operational, performance, cost and efficiency benefits across Sky’s business, a statement declared.
Building a business case for the DCIM project was greatly enhanced because all the stakeholders are invested in the same corporate aim; to reduce energy use and increase efficiency, it has been suggested. In fact, funding was granted precisely because Riccardo and his team could demonstrate, to a cross-discipline panel, how the project would improve utilisation of IT assets and deliver associated energy savings throughout the infrastructure.
