Supporting maximum uptime for data centres
At FEL, we understand that reliable data centres are at the heart of the UK’s business infrastructure, so we know how important it is to ensure that your data centre is constructed and maintained with a focus on minimising downtime.
Our commitment to your data centre is based on two promises. The first is that we’ll always deliver the highest-quality solution; the second that we’ll help you run it at peak efficiency throughout its life.
Our highly-skilled design, installation, project management and servicing teams have a proven track record of supporting leading businesses across Britain that have become household names. Whether it’s a new build or a retrofit, we’ll design and create your data centre, maintain it, continually monitor its operation and help with its development. In short, we’ll care for it as if it were our own.
Our extensive capabilities include:
- project management
- energy efficiency advice
- ROI calculations
- constant PUE monitoring
- life safety
- energy conservation measures
- air handling units
- rectifier distribution
- fire suppression
- data cabling
- containment systems
How energy efficient is your data centre?
Even if you already have an existing data centre, there may be room for improvement. The energy efficiency of a data centre is defined by its PUE – power usage effectiveness. It is calculated by dividing the total energy used in a data centre by the energy used to power the computers inside it. The closer the answer is to ‘1’, the more efficient the data centre.
Sometimes efficiency is expressed as a DCIE percentage figure, meaning data centre infrastructure efficiency. The highest percentages apply to the most efficient data centres.
Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM)
For FEL, constructing or updating your data centre operation is just the start because our expert team understands the importance of continual monitoring and ongoing predictive maintenance.
We use DCIM technology to give you a virtual view of what’s happening inside your data centre, giving you greater visibility of what’s happening than if you were there in person. We use the system on your behalf too, watching and monitoring for even the slightest potential issue and correcting it before it becomes a problem.
