The data centre has been equipped with high efficiency mechanical and electrical infrastructure that offers the best return on investment for Fujitsu’s customers. The data centre’s new features will save enough electricity to power 2,000 households a year. These features include:
Additionally, Fujitsu will reduce the power consumption of the customer IT systems housed in the new data centre through an IT Optimisation Programme. By consolidating the IT systems within the data centre power consumption and cost savings of up to 50% can be achieved. When complete the IT optimisation programmes will save enough power for up to 4,000 homes each year.
In total Fujitsu’s new data centre facility and IT optimisation programmes will each year save enough electricity to power up to 6,000 homes, equivalent to 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and significantly reduce the cost of IT for business.
Martin Provoost, Fujitsu Services head of data centres said: “Fujitsu’s new data centre combines high resilience and high efficiency, which is difficult to achieve as these two factors often oppose each other. Attaining high resilience requires more redundant infrastructure, which in turn consumes more energy. However, through new proven technology, Fujitsu’s London North data centre achieves both the optimum resilience level and a leading efficiency rating.”
1 Uptime Institute Tier III rating (typically 99.98% site availability). It is the commercial optimum specification for both private and public organisations – providing a high availability data centre as a key component for non-stop computing systems. Tier III provides the best value for money with the right level of data centre resilience for the funds invested
