Achieving sustainability in Data Centres
There's no arguing that sustainability has been a growing priority for data centres, at both the investor and consumer levels. In fact, a recent 451 Research report finds that 57% of polled data professionals believe sustainability is a competitive advantage, and that most customers expect it from their business.
But what happens when sustainability becomes mandatory?
Listen to this roundtable discussion where speaker Kevin Brown, SVP EcoStruxure solutions at Schneider Electric discusses an overall approach for data centre sustainability and to achieve business goals.

Meet the new galaxy VL 3-ph UPSInnovation, first-class power protection, and sustainability in your data centre. Discover how the innovative Galaxy VL UPS makes your data centre or colocation facility more sustainable.
Discover Galaxy VX from Schneider ElectricGalaxy VX is a highly efficient, modular 3-phase UPS scalable from 500 to 1500 KVA in a single unit with high performance and flexible operating modes.
Green SF6-free MV switchgear technology explainedAt the core of the electrical grid are medium voltage substations. These important equipment installations rely on high-performance switchgear to safely deliver power to businesses and homes.
To meet the rapid pace of data centre construction, cloud and service provider customers need a fast, easily deployable IT room solution with predictable performance that can be dropped on site.
Innovative technologies allow cloud and service providers to select the best match of UPS performance to business objectives, with an adaptable approach to changing needs.
Integrated software management provides actionable intelligence for an ideal balance of high availability and peak performance.
