To achieve energy and operational efficiencies, some of the world’s leading innovators in datacentre design are utilising a modular design approach for their datacentre infrastructure. Graham Evans, director, UK and Ireland for Active Power alongside Paul Anderson, programme director, Outsourcing Services at Capgemini UK and Ian Whitfield, managing director, at Red Engineering Design will examine how Capgemini UK utilised a modular design approach for its Swindon, UK based Merlin datacentre facility at Datacenter Dynamics Converged. The presentation is titled “Case Study – Capgemini Merlin and the Innovation Behind a Highly Efficient Modular Power Design.” In the session, the speakers will discuss how Capgemini integrated traditional datacentre requirements with aggressive sustainability initiatives with particular focus on power infrastructure design. The result: one of the most innovatively designed datacentres in the industry with a PUE (power usage effectiveness) of 1.11 and full Tier III design certification from the Uptime Institute.
