Legrand Case Study – Cloud-Centric Future for UK Colocation & Managed Services Provider Iomart
Read this case study from Legrand. It explores their working relationship with UK colocation and managed servies provider, Iomart.
Iomart have nine data centre locations, 14 data halls, a 28MVA capacity and a 2000km private fibre network running around the UK. This is strong evidence of being a major player in the UK colocation and rapidly developing managed services space.
Neil Johnston, iomart’s Data Centre Director, expands on the importance of such partnerships, outlining how Legrand Data Center Solutions was identified as a key supplier: “We met the Legrand Data Center Solutions
team at Data Center World and the relationship grew from there. Once we’d tried the Server Technology PDUs in our rack system, we got the bar down to a size we could fit in the recess of the rack. This meant that power from the server could do a 180 degree turn, with locking power cables, so there would be no impediment at the back of the rack when technicians were working on them.”
Neil adds: “PDUs can sometimes be mistaken as ‘just a power plug socket’, but this could not be further from the truth. The PDUs in our data centres are the main arteries, delivering applications to our customers to maintain the heartbeat of their businesses.”
“The lead times, support and customer service of Server Technology, through Kinetic IT, are first-class. As for the PDUs themselves – they just work!”
Looking to the Future
The new world of work places great emphasis on flexible working, software-as-a-service, security and, perhaps above all else, the importance of fast, reliable connectivity. The CEO of Iomart, Reece Donovan, is confident that their technology portfolio, built on a strong data centre and network foundation, will help navigate their way through this new way of working and be key in building their future as a business.
Iomart are looking to create true partnerships, because the data centre infrastructure is mission critical. They need to rely on companies to undertsand data centre technology and provide them with the capabilities they need.
