Eaton`s Data Centre Solutions Provide Cost Savings for Eastbourne College
Eastbourne, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Combine three small data centres into one carefully controlled and more efficient environment on a tight budget, whilst also allowing for easy and inexpensive expansion
Two Eaton 9355 15 kVA three-phase UPSs, four Delta³ Rack Systems (DRS) with accommodation for 96 servers, rack power distribution units and a CRAC air conditioning system
Eaton’s comprehensive data centre offering has provided Eastbourne College with an integrated and highly efficient infrastructure for its new data centre at half the cost of the solutions offered by turnkey suppliers. The combined savings means the new equipment is expected to pay for itself in less than five years
The College initially approached Eaton to supply equipment racks with a value of around £4,000 to house its servers. However, during a meeting with the company’s data centre experts, the total scope of the project came to light and it became apparent that Eaton’s extensive portfolio of solutions could provide all of the major infrastructure items needed for the project, which included the deployment of a raised floor in the new data centre.
