Schneider Electric to deliver innovative solutions for hyperscale data centers after expanding partnership with AVEVA

Innovative solutions are coming for hyperscale data centers after Schneider Electric and AVEVA expanded their partnership.

Announcements to develop hyperscale data centers is a frequent occurrence to meet worldwide demand for more data capacity and cloud adoption. But the complexity in operating at this scale and maintaining these facilities creates unprecedented challenges for hyperscale providers, which require different approaches to power the infrastructure.

This is where the new innovative solutions by Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, and AVEVA, the global leader in engineering and industrial software, will come into play.

Philippe Delorme, Executive Vice President of Energy Management at Schneider Electric, said: “At a time when the world’s digital infrastructure is being pushed to its limits, Schneider and AVEVA are delivering a comprehensive solution for hyperscale data centers to operate and maintain their critical environments.”

The solution will integrate Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Data Centers control and monitoring capabilities with AVEVA’s scalable industrial software to enable deep and expansive visibility of day-to-day operations.

Mr Delorme added: “The complete solution will deliver operational efficiency and a more reliable data center fleet.”

Digitally transforming legacy systems

The partnership looks to digitally transform legacy systems by connecting platforms and data sets that previously existed in disparate systems.

Craig Hayman, the CEO of AVEVA, said: “Our joint customers are empowered by the standardized systems and processes resulting in improved workforce efficiency across multiple sites and the entire enterprise.”

The solutions will achieve their aims by taking data that has long been managed at individual data centers and normalising it across multiple sites to inform and provide enterprise level IT/OT/IoT integration that delivers real-time decision making.

Ultimately, the innovations hope to empower data center staff to feel empowered in making faster and more informed decisions as well as optimising assets and operational efficiency by enabling facilities to scale regardless of number of sites or global location.

The hyperscale market is powering up, as Equinix also recently announced they would build three hyperscale data centers in Japan after the data center provider signed a US$1 billion agreement with GIC, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund.
