Data Centre Solutions

The data centre is at the heart of your IT infrastructure ensuring it runs smoothly is imperative to keeping your business running smoothly too.

Ecl-ips has experience in deploying a broad range of data centre solutions. The data centre is constantly evolving and needs to be flexible enough to enable its owner to keep up with existing and new technologies.

With the emergence of cloud computing most users today will be storing their data in a data centre somewhere. Due to the complexity of the environments and the equipment operating within them there are several parts of the data centre that can be monitored. Solutions supplied include real-time monitoring requirements, power management and UPS systems as well as the provision of network infrastructure, racks and enclosures.

Real-time monitoring

Real-time monitoring solutions can monitor a range of environmental and other factors which otherwise could cause disruption for your business. We are specialists in providing the broad range of real-time monitoring hardware, software and services that are available to provide businesses with the systems that they require. To  improve your real-time monitoring further we have experience in integrating a lot of third party devices from various manufacturers into our platforms.

 

Power Management

Eliminating power management issues is essential for IT and Facilities Managers to maintain system availability of increasing higher density equipment. Doing everything you can to improve energy efficiency and minimise waste is crucial. And no matter what type of facility you have, power is critical to your operation. Unplanned outages, equipment glitches, and poor power quality can cost you daily. Having the proper power management products can help you reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, and meet sustainability goals.

UPS solutions

Avoid costly power outages by having an Uninterruptible Power Supply to provide seamless transition between mains power failure and a battery backup.  Power failure resulting in network downtime can cost businesses substantial sums in revenue; in addition, data lost during those power failures is often not recoverable. UPS Systems instantly respond to power outages and can support equipment until mains power is available or a generator is active.

Enclosures and rack systems

Whether it’s a network closet, a server room, or a data centre of any size, IT operations rely on enclosure and rack systems for support, organisation, and management of the rack-mount equipment. Servers, storage, switches, routers, power distribution units, console port servers, KVM switches — today’s enclosure and rack systems are expected to support a greater number and greater variety of applications and devices. We can offer the APC Netshelter SX, SV and CX range of storage solutions as well as Environ Enclosures and Rack Systems.

Rack Access Control

Network appliances enabling remote or local access monitoring and control for your APC NetShelter SX enclosures.

APC Rack Access Control uses the NetBotz 250 appliance plus a handle kit to enable remote lock/unlock capabilities and badge access privileges for IT enclosures. The appliance can be mounted in a 0U or 1U configuration and is designed to work with APC NetShelter SX racks.

DCIM

Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is the convergence of IT and building facilities functions within an organisation.The main aim is to provide administrators with a holistic view of a data centre’s performance so that the equipment is used as efficiently as possible. We are able to offer a comprehensive DCIM solution through Schneider Electric’s Struxureware for Data Centres and its EcoStruxure range.

EcoStruxure IT revolutionizes DCIM by delivering a Datacenter Management as a Service (DMaaS) architecture, purpose-built for the hybrid IT and data center environments.
