Universal Networking Services, LLC (UNS, LLC) a leading provider of mission-critical power and cooling infrastructure products and services today announced strategic partnership with Australian based company, Datapod.
Scott Carr, Managing Director for Datapod, explains "The enterprise IT landscape has to be able to adapt to changing business needs. Whether you need a server room or data center for a new site, a refurbishment or a temporary facility, the problem is always the same. From its conception, a traditional 'bricks and mortar' installation can take up to 2 years to design and build. Often by the time the facility is ready to be commissioned, the needs of the business have changed and the installation is no longer fit for purpose. The challenge is to correctly estimate the ideal size of the installation without oversizing it, blowing out costs, or undersizing and delivering a sub-standard solution to the business. The trouble is that once the traditional data center is built, it is difficult to move so extending the physical size of the installation comes at a prohibitive cost. Datapod proudly introduces a unique, modular data center system that incorporates innovative design and cutting edge mechanical and electrical engineering. It has extended the concept of containerized data centers to include critical site infrastructure such as modular generators, chillers and deployment services thereby providing a complete infrastructure solution for data centers. By enabling data center users to deploy when they like, where they like, and for how long they like, the Datapod system offers performance superior to that of a 'bricks and mortar' data center facility, deploys faster and at a more cost-effective price point."
Waite Ave, Managing Partner of UNS, LLC states "Forecasting and measuring the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for Data Center Physical Infrastructure is essential for return-on-investment (ROi) analysis. Oversizing is the main contributor to excess TCO. Additionally, oversizing creates inefficiencies in the data center, including excess capital cost, operating cost, and energy cost. The average data center operator can achieve the highest return investment through rightsizing. UNS, LLC is proud to partner with Datapod to deliver an award-winning approach to a growing problem. With Datapod we can provide the data center community an alternative solution that maximizes their investment and increases the reliability and availability of their mission-critical facility."
