Wicklow-based Data Edge has said it is launching a new service to the Irish market which will help reduce the environmental impact of data centres. The Packet Power product is a wireless remote monitoring service which allows data centre and facility managers to track power and environmental conditions throughout their data centres. The devices deliver real-time insights, enabling greater efficiency and sustainability. They can also minimise cooling costs and prevent unplanned outages throughout the data centres by minimising hot spots. The monitors are deployed in several industries in 30 countries worldwide. They analyse 100 million data points every hour. The service enables data centre operators to maintain compliance with regulations and service level agreements. Environmental sustainability has long been a hot topic where data centres are concerned. The industry accounts for more than 1pc of global energy consumption. However, experts say that Ireland is well-positioned to set positive standard for sustainability given its location, as well as the fact it is home to several tech giants with green priorities of their own. Microsoft, which has data centres in Ireland and other locations revealed its plans to make its operations more sustainable ahead of COP26. These include reducing water use in the centres’ day-to-day operations and exploring carbon-free construction materials. Data Edge has partnered with Daxten Data Edge has teamed up with UK-founded data centre optimisation company, Daxten, to distribute the service to Irish customers. Both companies have more than 25 years’ experience in the industry. Chad Rislov, Daxten’s managing director said: “By enabling better power capacity management and monitoring, we are giving operators the power to plan for a better, greener future. Together, Daxten and Data Edge can support businesses to reach their goals and help make their buildings smarter.” Rislov’s words were echoed by Data Edge CEO, Paul Phelan, who said “While power and environmental monitoring can feel overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be.” Of the Packet Power service, Phelan said, “Not only does it make data centres more efficient and less expensive, it boosts their performance and is also – more importantly – better for the environment. Being able to support our customers in this space, delivering even more business benefits, and extend our commitment to sustainability is incredibly rewarding.” Phelan expects good uptake for this wireless monitors among Data Edge’s existing customer base and across a wide range of sectors, particularly the telecommunications industry. In September, the company announced it was hiring 10 additional staff members over a period of three years. The expansion news came as Phelan took over as CEO from Data Edge’s founder Brian McBride , who had held the job since 1989. Don’t miss out on the knowledge you need to succeed.
