IP House, a London-based data centre startup and new entrant to the UK colocation market, has selected EcoStruxure IT, the next generation cloud-based Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) platform, to provide 24/7 monitoring of their ISO-accredited facility.
Vinny Vaghani, Operations and Commercial Manager, IP House, commented: “One of the biggest drivers for selecting EcoStruxure IT was its vendor-neutrality and ability to integrate with different products to provide detailed data in a single dashboard. As a colocation provider we have to adhere to the highest standards of uptime and resiliency, monitoring and management is therefore an absolute necessity for our customers.”
IP House’s carrier-neutral data centre has been built to Tier III standards on the edge of London’s financial district. It contains 14,000 Sqft. of white space across two technical suites and will be operational later this month. The facility also utilises key components from Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Data Centers architecture, including Power Distrubution (PDU), Switchgear, NetShelter Racks and Symmetra PX UPS.
“Our clients depend on both uptime and 24/7 connectivity to business-critical applications hosted within the data centre.” said Sean Hilliar, Data Centre Manager, IP House. “Having the ability to proactively monitor all elements of the infrastructure with an advanced software solution like EcoStruxure IT will reassure customers that we’re providing them with a secure, competitive and resilient colocation service, that safeguards them against downtime.”
EcoStruxure IT is a vendor-neutral Datacentre Management as a Service (DMaaS) architecture, purpose-built for the hybrid IT and data centre environments. It provides global visibility from anywhere, at any time on any device and data-driven insights into critical IT assets, which helps customers mitigate risk and reduce downtime.
