Stand #H20
DatacenterDynamics Converged 2013
London, UK
20th-21st November

Power management company Eaton has announced it will have a major presence at the London DataCenterDynamics Converged conference and exhibition (DCD London), which is being held at the ExCel London International Conference Centre on 20th and 21st November 2013. As well as presenting a paper demonstrating how Iliad Datacenter, France’s leading alternative broadband operator, is successfully achieving exceptional energy efficiency without compromising resilience, Eaton will also showcase its latest power quality and distribution solutions for data centres across two stands.

Eaton’s conference paper entitled: “Innovative Engineering Plus Proven Technology Delivers Premium Service,” will be presented jointly by Nicolas Fontés, Sales Director at Iliad Datacenter, and Cyrille Brisson, Vice President of Eaton’s EMEA Power Quality Division. The paper is a case study examining how Iliad Datacenter, one of the few data centre operators to design and build all of its own data centres, has applied the innovative technology embodied in the Eaton UPS product range to achieve 97.9 percent efficiency for the whole critical power path, saving up to 3,721 MWh per year, and 99 percent for the UPS system in its new data centre. Cooling requirements have also been greatly reduced, saving up to 7,873 MWh per year, and all of these benefits have been gained without in any way compromising the resilience, reliability and availability of the premium-quality service Iliad Datacenter provides for its customers.

“All data centre operators are striving to achieve the elusive goal of maximising energy efficiency without impacting resilience,” said Cyrille Brisson, “and this is being made all the more difficult by the current rapid evolution in data centre architecture to accommodate the growing influence of convergence and virtualisation.”

“Much has been said about the theory of combining efficiency with resilience, but we’re taking the opportunity at DCD London to go further. We are discussing how that much sought after combination genuinely has been achieved in a real-life large-scale project. In short, we are demonstrating that combining efficiency with resilience is no longer a pipe dream – it’s something that’s achievable right now.”

The prime focus of the Eaton stand at DCD London will be the company’s new 93PM modular UPS systems, which have been developed specifically to reduce CapEx in data centres by supporting a “pay-as-you-grow” approach. These innovative UPSs have an unmatched double-conversion efficiency of 97 percent and are available with ratings up to 200 kW. Also featured on the stand will be the popular Power Xpert 9395 UPS systems, which deliver up to 99 percent efficiency when operating in ESS (Energy Saver System) mode, and which feature superior battery management, inherent redundancy and a scalable architecture that adapts to increasing power requirements.

From its B-Line division, Eaton will be highlighting the Delta3 IT enclosure system, which has been designed to minimise operating and lifecycle costs while optimising the operating environment for the equipment mounted in it, and the highly configurable Fusion rack mounting system, which features bolt-together four-post corner construction and is rated to 1,000 kg. Also available for collection from the stand is the division’s new Data Centre Solutions brochure, which details a wide range of versatile enclosure options for IT applications.

Information will be available on the stands about other products in Eaton’s data centre power solutions range including its ePDU power distribution products, which offer flexible options for bringing power to the server outlets; BladeUPSs, which are scalable backup power solutions optimised for use with high-density blade servers; and distribution equipment, including low voltage switchboards, medium voltage switchgear and ring main units as well as Power Xpert busbar systems.

Throughout DCD London, experts from Eaton will be on hand to provide those attending with advice and guidance on selecting solutions for specific applications, with the emphasis on combining energy efficiency with versatility, durability and value for money.
