EvoSwitch has been awarded the ‘Best Energy Solution’ award at this year Datacloud Awards 2017 in Monaco. This award recognises EvoSwitch’s achievements with regards to the company’s in-house engineered, free cooling based data centre technology with low PUE figures - as being deployed in EvoSwitch’s data centre campus in Europe (Amsterdam region).
At the Datacloud Europe 2017 ceremony evening in Monaco, EvoSwitch was one of four contenders for the ‘Best Energy Solution’ award. Other companies selected by the panel of judges include Asperitas, EcoCooling and NLDC. Datacloud Europe is BroadGroup’s annual networking and deal-making event for the European cloud and data centre industry.
As an owner/operator of carbon-neutral data centres in Europe (Amsterdam region) and the US (Washington DC area), EvoSwitch has designed and engineered its energy-efficient ‘free cooling’ concept in-house to address demanding and multi-tenant requirements for colocation and cloud-usage. During the award ceremony yesterday evening in Monaco, Eric Boonstra (Chief Executive Officer EvoSwitch) and Patrick van der Wilt (Commercial Director EvoSwitch) were representing EvoSwitch to see if their energy-efficient data centre design with low PUE figures would be selected as a winning solution. Now it’s confirmed that EvoSwitch’s data centre innovation may call itself an‘award-winning’ technology.
Datacloud’s Best Energy Solution award recognises a data centre facility, a team or an individual with a demonstrable track record of implementing an innovative approach. The panel of judges was looking to identify a business that has significantly demonstrated the use of a disruptive energy innovation within the data centre environment, preferably providing an exemplar of innovation in energy management to the ‘global’ data centre industry.
“The Datacloud Awards celebrate some of the best companies, individuals and technologies in this increasingly challenging and competitive industry,” said Gerd J. Simon, Chairman of the Judges Panel. “The Best Energy Solution award was a hotly contested category, with entries of outstanding quality reflecting the amount of change and innovation that is happening in the industry right now. We congratulate EvoSwitch on their achievement.”
Modular data centre design
EvoSwitch’s energy-efficient data centre technology has quite an 'innovative' design that’s now being awarded with the first prize for Best Energy Solution at BroadGroup’s Datacloud Europe 2017 event. EvoSwitch’s innovation is a highly modular, containerised architecture that has been awarded legally registered patents. The integrated, flexible data centre infrastructure is not only intensively optimised for energy-efficiency, but also for operational efficiency and short lead times for data centre deployment.
“By winning this data centre energy-efficiency award, we’re proud to show that EvoSwitch is perfectly positioned to meet the dynamic hybrid cloud and IoT-driven needs of customers worldwide,” said Eric Boonstra, CEO of EvoSwitch. “EvoSwitch being awarded the first prize for Best Energy Solution at the Datacloud Europe event, is another proof that we’re on the right track with our innovation and engineering efforts at our colocation data centre campuses in Europe and the United States. In line with EvoSwitch’s strong growth, strategic ambitions and growing demand for our innovative data centre approach, we expect to come up with further major announcements very soon.”
