As they are chosen by public vote, the DCS Awards are testimony to the worth of our products and services from the people whose opinions matter the most, namely our customers.

Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has been shortlisted for awards in four categories in the DCS Awards 2015. This follows on from its success in winning the Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Product of the Year for its StruxureWareTM for Data Centers software suite at last year awards.

Organised by Angel Business Communications, publisher of Data Centre Solutions magazine, and taking place at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel in London on May 14th, the DCS Awards is a leading event to recognise and acknowledge excellence in the data centre industry.

The Categories in which Schneider has been shortlisted for this year's awards include:

DCIM Product of the year 2015

Currently the holder of this award, Schneider Electric is this year hoping to retain it with its Data Center Operation: Cooling Optmize module. Part of the successful StruxureWare for Data Centers Suite, this module provides automated cooling in dynamic data centres by continuously optimizing airflow. Cooling Optimize is a closed-loop system that reacts to real-time data, automatically identifies and eliminates hot spots and helps diagnose potential facility risks. The application balances the need for cooling with the lowest possible energy expenditure, delivering immediate cost savings and the right amount of cooling within the data centre.

Data centre Energy Efficiency Product of the Year

In this category, Schneider Electric's Galaxy VM UPS delivers ultra-reliable power availability together with class-leading energy efficiency thanks to its patented ECOnversionTM technology. This allows seamless switch over to back up mode in the event of a power outage, guarantees a permanent supply of conditioned power yet does so without using double conversion, thereby saving costs. It also qualifies for enhanced capital allowances and its ability to achieve an IEC 62040-3 Class 1 rating without double conversion makes it unique.

Data Centre Power and Cooling Product of the Year

In this category Schneider Electric is offering its range of 14 prefabricated data centre modules, supported by 12 reference designs, each of which details complete data centres scalable in 250kW to 2MW increments, and meet Uptime Tier II and Tier III standards. The modules are pre-engineered, pre-assembled/ pre-integrated and pre-tested power and cooling systems, delivered to sites as standardized “plug-in” modules. The benefits include cost savings, time savings, simplified planning, improved reliability, improved agility, higher efficiency and a higher level of accountability.

Data Centre Hosting/ Colocation Supplier of the Year

Schneider Electric helped Green Mountain in Norway to deploy an exceptionally energy-efficient data centre in rapid time thanks to its prefabricated modules, delivered on-site preconfigured and pretested for an easy installation. The data centre at Rjukan in central Norway claims to be the Greenest Data Centre in the World and Schneider's prefabricated modules helped the centre to be completed in time to win a major customer order.

“We are delighted to be short listed as Finalists in so many categories for this year’s DCS Awards,” said Dale Wrangles, Vice President, Schneider Electric, UK. “As they are chosen by public vote, the awards are testimony to the worth of our products and services from the people whose opinions matter the most, namely our customers."
