Disruptive Technologies

Growing emphasis on Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, AI and Analytics has increased digital transactions, making it more essential that data centers keep up with the pace of change.
 

Changing Business Needs

Data centers are now seen as front-end strategic assets that provide competitive advantage to the business rather than back-end cost centers.
 

Efficiency Drive

Businesses must drive performance improvement and energy reduction to remain sustainable, manage costs and reduce carbon footprints.

    What are Data Center Lifecycle Services (DCLS)?

    With over 50 years of experience in developing end-to-end Data Centre technologies from infrastructure offerings to management software, Schneider Electric is in a unique position to provide services to bridge the perennial gaps between product design, Data Centre design and Data Centre operation. Combined with our expertise and know-how as a major energy efficiency expert, we are well-poised to ensure that every Data Centre is geared towards energy efficiency at every stage of its lifecycle.

Walk-through Audit

This one-day activity comprising a workshop and walkthrough by our experts provides a quick baselining of your Server Room or Data Center against industrial best practices. This audit will pinpoint areas to focus on in the next course of action.
 

Detailed On-Site Assessment

The most well sought-after assessment with deep-dive analysis and examinations on power, cooling infrastructure, architecture, capacity, and energy usage. Achieve higher resiliency, efficiency, and other customer-defined goals (e.g. gap analysis, feasibility study, etc) with our proprietary analytical tools and standardized framework.
 

Remote Assessment

Capture valuable data points with DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) software. With Remote Assessment, we analyse raw data to drive meaningful insights on trends, possible issues, associations and correlations, and provide recommendations for better efficiency and resiliency. Performed in a regular framework without any physical visit to the site.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Data Centers need to be in top condition at all times and most importantly, predictable on various fronts (reliability and efficiency). There are few factors hindering us from achieving that. One of it is Design vs Actual Operation, where the actual Data Center being operated will always deviate from its design-intent. Over time, there will be site issues which built up and result in chronic problems going undetected. As time goes, equipment performance will degrade in capacity and reliability.

    Hence, we’ll want to know the true health of the Data Center’s current condition, the extent of how the equipment could support the current and future loads and whether it will still support the IT blueprint and business requirements.
  • Our assessment is brand-agnostic and measurements are performed around the devices. We’ll need customers to download the data of the devices and DCIM/BMS (if required) for data log and alarm reports for further analysis. Other measurements shall be on the white space environment. Hence, regardless of the make and architecture, assessment could always be performed with impartial scrutiny.
