Schneider Electric announced HyperPod, a rack-ready system designed to deploy IT in increments of 8 to 12 racks.
HyperPod promises up to 21 percent faster deployment times and delivers 15 to 20 percent savings in time and costs over traditional approaches.
HyperPod, part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure for Data Center architecture, is addressing the demand for better compute capacity and flexible data center architectures in digital world.
HyperPod’s architecture, with integrated power, cooling, cabling, software management and containment, enables racks of IT equipment to roll into place, similar to a docking station, without the complexity and time associated with traditional IT deployments.
“Our customers wanted a streamlined and more cost-efficient way to deploy IT, one that keeps up with the pace of business, and we listened. HyperPod is changing the way data centers are designed and how IT is being deployed,” said Steven Carlini, senior director, Innovation, Schneider Electric.
Schneider Electric is offering a free online rule-based designer that makes it easy for clients and partners to build and customize their pod with a variety of options, reducing overall costs, decreasing time to market and enabling partners to increase their value to customers.
Options include: containment only, mini and large cantilevers, cable trays, distribution cabinets, multiple roof options, windows, blanking panels, doors, lighting kits and power raceways. HyperPod can be deployed as a single pod or in extended pod configurations. Additionally, on-site assembly training and services are also available.
EcoStruxure for Data Centers has been deployed in 450,000+ installations, with the support of 9,000 system integrators, connecting over 1 billion devices.
