Data center energy efficiency is of utmost importance in realizing business profitability, effectiveness and efficiency. This was the essence of Schneider Electric’s Country Sales Manager for APC in the Philippines, Ian Dela Rosa’s presentation during the company’s last installment of Xperience Efficiency 2013 Manila roadshow held in Shangri-La EDSA.

Dela Rosa discussed energy challenges and introduced methods or solutions on how to protect and enable businesses throughout the data center life cycle. By leveraging these services, users can respond quickly to their IT complexities and business challenges as well.

“Knowing your business’ energy consumption and matching it with the right solution can make a big difference on how we do business,” said Dela Rosa. “Not only can businesses save on energy cost, but more importantly, increase productivity of the human resource. We provide solutions that bridges facilities and IT in one integrated product set allowing IT managers to access, troubleshoot and control multiple assets with ease and peace of mind.”

As a specialist in energy management, Schneider Electric offers integrated solutions across multiple market segments, including utilities and infrastructure, industries and machines manufacturers, non-residential building, residential, data centers and networks, that focuses on making energy safe, reliable, efficient, productive and green.

“We deliver efficient solutions by making sure our wide range of Data Center Physical Infrastructure (DCPI) are matched with Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM). That is, solutions that are fast to deploy and scalable to fit the needed power and cooling based on desired service level,” adds Dela Rosa, referring to the company’s standard EcoStruxure solution architecture.

EcoStruxure is an integrated solution that addresses the need to reduce energy consumption and protect investments through intelligent integration of building systems on a single IP platform. These solutions deliver up to 30% energy savings for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by combining energy-intensive systems like HVAC, access control, video security management, and lighting control across the entire enterprise.

For businesses in expansion mode, Schneider Electric has long-term solutions that give end-to-end visibility of facilities and allowing them to save up to 20% on capital expenditures (CAPEX). These solutions provide full system visibility while supporting concrete energy and operational improvements.

In terms of solutions, Dela Rosa noted that the starting point is the capability, followed by power monitoring, pooling monitoring, energy sustainability, project management, and even the IT infrastructure as well.

“The picture behind this is the typical data center space where it includes the upspring in making sure that it is powered up, and all the different data center solutions around, so it’s a suite of modular, integrated data center software tools that enables effective data center management,” said Dela Rosa.

According to Dela Rosa, the functions of these tools include energy sustainability, business process and actual control, where all of these deliver different capabilities that will empower endusers.

Dela Rosa added that Schneider Electric believes that innovation or the contribution in terms of research and development is one of the keys in allowing the company to come up with different product set, solutions and services to its end-market.

Meanwhile, Dela Rosa claimed that dynamic power variation affects data center in the way it is being demanded. “In BPOs, which function at night, the demand is higher. During daytime, it’s lower. For other companies like banks, services, manufacturing firms, it’s the other way around,” explains Dela Rosa. “The other factors that affect data center are regulatory requirements and energy efficiency,” according to Dela Rosa.

Regarding solution migration, Jean-Francois de Sousa, VP for IT Business at Schneider Electric (Phils.), Inc., claimed that there are no risks involved when a user decides to migrate from the traditional or non-Schneider Electric solutions to SE solutions.

Xperience Efficiency 2013 kicked-off in June in Washington DC, with events in France, United States, China, Colombia, Brazil, Russia and in East Asia, including the Philippines, to collaborate and share knowledge with customers, partners, industry leaders and governments on how to solve today’s energy and sustainability challenges.
