PRESS RELEASE:  London, United Kingdom – Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure Ready™ HyperPod system has won ‘Data Centre Design and Build Product of the Year’ at the Electrical Review Awards which were held at a glittering ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel on London’s Park Lane last week.


The need to deploy new IT resources quickly and cost-effectively, whether as upgrades to existing facilities or within newly built installations, is a continuing challenge faced by todays data centre operators. Part of Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure™ for Data Center architecture, HyperPod is a rack-ready system designed to deploy IT in increments of 8 to 12 racks. The solution addresses the demand for greater compute capacity and flexible data centre architectures in today's digital world.

This prestigious award recognises Schneider Electric for innovation within the data centre infrastructure market and further highlights the HyperPod solution as an industry first.

HyperPod’s innovative pod-style architecture with integrated power, cooling, cabling, software management and containment, is engineered to support all of today’s rack types, including open compute, and enables pre-populated IT to be rolled into place, significantly reducing the complexity and installation time associated with traditional infrastructure deployments.

“I’m absolutely delighted to accept this award on behalf of Schneider Electric,” said Marc Garner, Vice President, Secure Power Division, UK and Ireland. “HyperPod™ is changing the way data centres are designed and how IT is being deployed. For many customers, including Cloud and Colocation Service Providers, HyperPod meets the demand for an agile and scalable data centre solution, enabling them to add capacity quickly and without complex integration work. By reducing deployment times, making them up to 21 percent faster, its innovative architecture can also deliver 15 to 20 percent savings in time and costs over traditional approaches.”
