NEUPC-led framework supplier reduces University's energy consumption with new data centre

A supplier on a NEUPC led national data centre management framework has developed a data centre at a University designed to consume half the energy of its old system and reduce its carbon footprint.

 

Advanced Power Technology (APT) developed the system for Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) as part of the the NEUPC led 'Supply, Installation and Maintenance of Data Centre Management Equipment Including Consultancy Framework'.

 

It is reported that APT completed on time and in budget, whilst exceeding expectations with the University's project initiator. The supplier also received an award for services above and beyond the call of duty.

 

Jeff Hall, IT Operations Data Centre Manager at MMU, says: "APT has delivered on time and within budget a state of the art modular Data Centre in reused space at MMU. The whole APT team has contributed to a very good experience for us in delivering such as complex and important project.
