T-Systems boosts cloud with Barcelona data centre


Emerson Network Power has built a modular data centre in Spain for telecoms firm T-Systems.

The facility, located in Barcelona, occupies a total of 1200 square-meters in floorspace with space for up to 300 racks.

The Tier III data centre also includes a Power Use Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.3, 38 integrated modules, and a modular capacity of 1.1 MW. Each module is approximately 31.5 sqm.

The data centre is expected to help T-Systems capitalise on its cloud services growth in Europe while reducing electrical consumption by 30%.

"The construction of this data centre is the cornerstone of T-Systems’ consolidation and transformation programme, and allows us to provide cloud services across Europe," said Raúl Saura, head of dynamic platform services at T-Systems Iberia."

"It was absolutely strategic to quickly and successfully deploy this data centre to fulfil T-Systems’ vision for the future."

Scott Barbour, business leader of Emerson Network Power, added: "We worked relentlessly and in close concert with T-Systems to drive the success of this modular data centre build."

"Our technical expertise, including our deep domain knowledge in power, thermal management, modular construction and our service capabilities enabled us to complete the facility within nine months, versus the traditional 24-36 months generally estimated for a stick-build construction."
