Executive Summary

Global trends toward blade server and virtualization platforms have dramatically increased data centres' power and cooling demands. Maxnet wanted a power and cooling solution that would enable it to meet future demands and help differentiate the company from its competitors. Maxnet also wanted to keep the environmental impact to a minimum by implementing the most energy efficient technology available. Maxnet now has ten times the power and cooling capability of a traditional data centre by deploying a Hot Aisle Containment System (HACS) solution from Dell partner APC by Schneider Electric. Energy-efficient Dell PowerEdge blade servers running VMware combined with the HACS infrastructure have drastically reduced electricity costs.
