Schneider Electric walked away with two distinctions at the Data Centre Middle East Awards 2011.
The company was named Best Data Centre Middle East for the facility installed for Smartworld comprising two Tier 3 data centres at DWC. The in row cooling architecture slashed energy costs by 30%.
Schneider was also awarded the Green Award for Sustainability for the UAE University Data Centre Project, Al-Ain. Instead of creating a separate data centre, UAEU retrofitted a building to reuse existing space and provide cooling, as well as uninterrupted power supply system and back-up generator. The building now hosts the UAEU Net-Pop room that provides WAN, LAN, Internet and Ankabut (Internet 2) connectivity and the newly established green data centre.
Paul-Francois Cattier, global vice-president - Data Centre, Schneider Electric, said: "It is always good to be recognized for the successful implementation of solutions. Even more encouraging is the categories in which we have been awarded, reflecting our commitment towards sustainable development while providing cutting-edge technologies that meet individual client needs."
