Vertiv scores Asia Pacific data center award for customer value leadership

21 Feb 2017

Vertiv was recently awarded with the 2016 Asia Pacific Modular Data Center Customer Value Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan.

This is given to organisations that have shown exemplary achievements within the industry, delivering the best value to its customers in the modular data center market.

Vertiv’s modular data center solution showcases its unique collaborative design-build process, enabling a deployment time that is up to 50 percent faster than traditional data center designs.

The organisation’s modular data center solution has been deployed in key infrastructure projects throughout the Asia Pacific including Australia, the Philippines and Myanmar.

“With the speed in which technology today is growing and is being utilised, integration of IT and communication assets is increasingly becoming important for organisations looking to reduce operational cost while ensuring that they are delivering the best possible services to their customers,” says Steve Shelley, vice president for modular solutions, Vertiv in Asia Pacific.

“Our modular data center solution is unique in the industry in that we simply don’t create ‘containerised’ data centers,” he explains.

“Rather, we employ a fresh approach taking into consideration the geography, climate, technology profile and even the cultural aspects of a location. Through this, we are able to give our customers the perfect solution that combines both design and industry-leading capabilities.”

“Vertiv’s product development excellence has resulted in an intriguing modular data center product called IMS (Integrated Modular Solution) that offers industry-leading scalability and flexibility,” adds Gautham Gnanajothi, senior industry analyst, energy and environment, Frost & Sullivan.

“There are two key aspects that drive its excellence in customer value: the first is its meticulous efforts in reducing the total cost of ownership, and the second is its ability to incorporate value-added features and functionalities to enhance the overall value for the end user.”
