    Achieving sustainability in Data Centers

    There's no arguing that sustainability has been a growing priority for data centers, 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 center sustainability and to achieve business goals.


    Being sustainable is good for business

    A recent report, published by 451 Research, surveyed 800+ data center providers worldwide and discovered that more than half of the respondents saw sustainability as a competitive differentiator and cited customer expectations as the pilot. However, only 43 percent said they had strategic sustainability initiatives and efficiency improvements in place for their infrastructure. This means that the majority of data center providers do not have any strategic sustainability plans even when customers are demanding them.

In the more complex, more power-sensitive “New Electric World,” data centers face the risk of more unplanned downtime, highly inefficient electrical operations, and more frequent equipment failures. These can all lead to higher OPEX spending and, in some cases, major financial losses.

Discover our innovative low- and medium-voltage electrical distribution products designed to ensure the reliability of your data centers’ critical applications. 

Make the most of electrical infrastructure solutions designed with reliability and safety.

Safety: Innovation dedicated to customer security

Reliability: Long-lasting performance to maintain operational continuity and avoid costly downtime

Scalability: Innovative and repeatable solutions to deploy power capacity


To meet the rapid pace of data center construction, cloud and service provider customers need a fast, easily deployable IT room solution with predictable performance that can be dropped in place 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 a balance of high availability and peak performance.
