Finland’s CSC – IT Center for Science deployed the Data Center on Demand modular, a purpose-built data center solution from CommScope.
The latest deployment is intended to meet the increasing customer needs for data center capacity at the CSC, a non-profit, state-owned company tasked with promoting the operational framework of Finnish research, education, culture and administration.
“Our customer base is growing and their requirements are changing. We needed to provide more data center capacity in a scalable, environmentally friendly and cost-efficient way,” said Tero Tuononen, director ICT Platforms, CSC.
The DCoD is installed at CSC’s Kajaani. CSC deployed its first CommScope modular data center in 2012, adding a second at the end of 2014.
In less than three years, the solution delivered benefits such as reduction in energy consumption and costs, effective water usage and expansion of existing data center.
“The concept of a data center has fundamentally changed. When considering the requirement for the physical space, traditional brick-and-mortar facilities may not be appropriate for all project scenarios,” said Ciaran Forde, vice president, Global Data Center Solutions, CommScope.
“The CSC project is a perfect example of where an organization, requiring more capacity, was able to expand in phases. The modular approach of Data Center on Demand enabled a phased capacity expansion from an engineering and economically sound perspective.”
In July, Standard Chartered has selected CommScope’s Redwood building intelligence programto save energy costs, improve workplace experience and capture advanced occupancy data.
Redwood building intelligence program helps Standard Chartered to save energy through efficient LED lighting which can be controlled using the online Redwood management software or through a mobile device.
