HyperPod, a rack ready data centre system, has won ‘Data Centre innovation of The Year’ at the DCS Awards, 2018. The award, decided by popular vote, recognises the company for innovation and leadership, the organiser explained.

The subject of this award has been designed by Schneider Electric to deploy IT in increments of 8 to 12 racks. The system’s innovative design supports all of today’s rack types, while its pod architecture, with integrated power, cooling, cabling, software management and containment, enables pre-populated equipment racks to be rolled into place, significantly reducing the complexity and installation time associated with traditional IT deployments.

Receiving the award on behalf of Schneider Electric, Matthew Baynes, Colocation & Telco Segment Director, Cloud & Service Providers, said: “I’m proud to accept this distinguished award, which recognises Schneider Electric for innovation. A fundamental and key focus for our company is to improve Innovation at Every Level. By speeding deployment times by up to 21 percent faster and unlocking up to 15% savings in CAPEX, HyperPod is the perfect fit for today’s data centres - especially hyperscale and colocation data centre providers looking to add capacity fast.”
