Eaton Announces Agreement with ROOT Data Center

Eaton (News - Alert), a power management company, has entered into an agreement to deliver power distribution and quality solutions to ROOT Data Center’s new state-of-the- art, Tier 3 (News - Alert) colocation facility in Montreal, Canada.

With the help of Eaton, ROOT Data Center, a next-generation data center colocation provider, expects to lower the cost of operations and enhance energy efficiency at its facility.

As part of the pact, Eaton will provide its Power Xpert 9395 uninterruptible power system (UPS) and Remote Power Panel (RPP) to help ROOT Data Center reduce utility costs and allow it to extend costs savings to customers.

The energy-efficient Power Xpert 9395 Backup Power System is designed to provide backup power and scalable battery runtimes in a small footprint for large data centers, healthcare applications, and other critical systems. With the ground-breaking Energy Saver System, which can be monitored and managed on its new LCD touchscreen, the 9395 operates at 99 percent efficiency.

Eaton’s RPP power distribution solutions are designed to deliver 30 kilowatt (kW) of power to each rack within ROOT Data Center’s colocation facility. The Eaton configuration is engineered to help reduce power distribution costs by more than 20 percent and improve data center efficiency by as much as 10 percent over other local colocation providers.

Thanks to Eaton’s solutions, ROOT Data Center now aims to become the first colocation facility in the Montreal region to deploy a highly efficient, high-density 415/240-volt power management platform.

“We carefully considered a number of power solutions providers for our next-generation data center facility and found that Eaton stood out amongst the competitors, offering an extremely versatile product line combined with premium service capabilities,” said Jason van Gaal, chief executive officer, ROOT Data Center, in a statement.

 “When aggressively targeting high efficiency in a colocation facility, you need advanced power distribution and management solutions that can adapt to customer needs,” said Umesh Patel, general manager, Eaton Power Quality Division, Canada.

Patel said that Eaton’s solutions align with a state-of-the-art facility like ROOT Data Center to help establish itself as an industry leader with advanced service features for enhanced efficiency, reliability and modularity.
