Interxion to offer EkkoSense cooling energy to EMEA customers
Interxion: A Digital Realty Company (NYSE: DLR) has unveiled it can now offer EkkoSense’s distinctive software-driven data centre energy optimisation services to its EMEA enterprise data centre customers.
The company said the decision comes off the back of an initial project Interxion ran with EkkoSense in February last year to reduce cooling system energy consumption at its West Drayton, London site.
By applying EkkoSense’s software-driven optimisation solution, Interxion was able to secure a 20% reduction in cooling system energy usage.
“We’ve already had considerable success in reducing cooling system energy consumption for both Interxion in Europe and Digital Realty in the US, and we’re really looking forward to unlocking further savings for Interxion enterprise customers across EMEA,” said Dean Boyle (pictured), CEO, EkkoSense.
“At EkkoSense we have already helped our clients to reduce their cooling power carbon emissions by around ten thousand tonnes of CO2, and we’re adding to that total daily.
“Interxion’s new initiative will present its enterprise customers with a win/win proposition: reducing their cooling energy usage by between 20-30%, presenting them with a clear carbon saving that will support their net-zero emissions programmes, and also delivering a net cut in their overall data centre cooling energy spending.”
Earlier this year, Digital Realty announced its commitment to setting a science-based target to reduce corporate CO2 emissions across its entire portfolio.
“As a leader in the European data centre industry, Interxion strives to set a precedent by maximising energy efficiency across all of its operations,” said Jeff Tapley, EMEA Group MD and SVP Portfolio Management Group, Interxion.
“Our initial project with EkkoSense has clearly demonstrated how by focusing on thermal monitoring and airflow optimisation we can increase cooling capacity and reduce our overall cooling energy usage.
“That’s why it now makes sense to share these potential efficiency benefits with our EMEA enterprise customers by inviting them to take advantage of EkkoSense’s services as a value add to our broader PlatformDIGITAL offering.”
