This new custom built, modular data centre will provide Capgemini with a sustainable, flexible, high-density solution. Capgemini is one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services and will utilise Schneider Electric prefabricated modular data centre infrastructure to upgrade the IT, power and cooling capacity of its Merlin facility.

Paul Feeney, of Capgemini said, “Modular infrastructure allows us to align the requirements we have for high density, flexible racking, and energy efficiency. This makes prefab a more sustainable solution going forward.”

Prefabricated infrastructure solves the challenge of ensuring scalable data centre capacity to meet the needs of growing businesses, in addition, it is flexible to meet customer’s specific system design requirements

Paul Feeney, added, “We had a strong business case for the data centre upgrade based on growth, market change and client demand.  At the same time, we were looking to work with a supplier which could meet our sustainability and efficiency goals. We also need to make provision for requirements like Hybrid Cloud and supercomputing - Schneider Electric’s prefab data centre solution can accommodate all of those applications.”

Last year at DatacenterDynamics Converged London, Schneider Electric announced 14 prefabricated data centre modules together with 12 new Data Centre Reference Designs. The reference designs detail complete data centres scalable in 250kW to 2MW increments, delivering IT, power, and/ or cooling integrated with best-in-class data centre infrastructure components and StruxureWare™ for Data Centers DCIM software for an easy-to-deploy, predictable data centre.

Matthew Baynes, Enterprise Director, Schneider Electric UK.  Said "Schneider Electric is delighted to have been selected to deliver a prefabricated modular data centre solution to Capgemini, prefab meets the needs of a broad range of data centre requirements, from large space and colo facilities, to small and medium enterprises and industrial applications. Across the board, business seems to be voting in favour of its scalable, predictable performance and the efficiency benefits prefab brings."
