HP Keeps Up with Accelerated Customer Demand for Next-generation Data Centers
HP today announced it has signed data center design services contracts with more than 60 customers in the last six months.
EYP Mission Critical Facilities (EYP MCF), a company of HP, provides strategic planning, design and operations support to help companies transform their data centers, optimize energy efficiency and enable business growth.
In the past six months, organizations across 12 industries and 27 countries – including Credit Suisse, UBS, Digital Realty Trust and Power Loft – have signed up for EYP MCF’s data infrastructure services. More than 500 companies have worked with EYP MCF to design their data centers, command and control centers, trading floors, and supercomputing sites. As a result of the high demand in mission-critical services projects, HP plans to broaden its EYP MCF services availability to more countries.
“Companies from all over the world are turning to HP to design and build the next-generation data centers required for high-density scalable computing,” said Peter Gross, chief executive officer, EYP Mission Critical Facilities. “By offering customers the right solutions to complex energy-efficiency and optimization challenges, we are giving them the keys to adapt and transform to meet changing business needs.”
EYP MCF designs energy-efficient data centers for Power Loft and others
Power Loft is a privately held company headquartered in McLean, Va., that specializes in the development and ownership of high-density, high-security data centers. Recently, Power Loft signed an agreement with EYP MCF to design a data center in San Antonio, Texas. EYP MCF also designed and provided engineering consulting services on Power Loft’s first data center, located in Virginia.
Both of Power Loft’s facilities will be LEED (Leadership in Environmental Design) certified and, upon completion, will operate using 52 percent less power than comparably sized data centers.
By partnering with EYP MCF, Power Loft is able to apply industrial design concepts within the data center to maximize energy efficiency with zero reduction to overall reliability. The result is lower energy costs for Power Loft and its customers, driven by a data center that meets the company’s needs today and into the future.
Other examples of EYP MCF’s recent data center design projects include:
* Designing a leading technology company’s energy-efficient technology infrastructure at its U.S. headquarters
* Providing mission-critical consulting services for a Tier IV data center master plan across a top U.S. university’s statewide, multi-campus data center environment
* Designing a high-profile, energy-efficient data center in Iceland, offering reliability levels from Tier I to IV and LEED Platinum certification EYP also consulted with global financial services firm UBS on its data center design. “Ensuring that we have the right infrastructure in place to support continuous uptime and reliability, while reducing energy costs is a big priority for UBS,” said Stephen Peters, executive director, Corporate Real Estate, UBS. “EYP MCF understands these priorities and helped us to design our critical data centers to achieve these business objectives.”
With one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of servers, storage, services and software, HP is helping customers build next-generation data centers to drive competitive advantage. EYP MCF’s capabilities add facilities expertise to the HP Data Center Transformation portfolio.
