Mar. 31, 2016 – ByteGrid Holdings, a provider of hosting solutions, has selected power management company Eaton to provide power management and monitoring solutions for its Cleveland Technology Center (CTC) in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, which it says is the city’s largest multi-tenant data centre.
As part of a major data centre expansion in Cleveland, ByteGrid has installed two 1.5MW Eaton PowerXpert 9395 uninterruptible power systems (UPSs). Eaton’s PowerXpert 9395 UPS boasts “industry-leading efficiency and modular redundancy, allowing ByteGrid to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by leveraging groundbreaking energy saving technology while increasing power system reliability.”
In addition to the UPSs, ByteGrid relies on Eaton service, medium-voltage load interrupter switchgear, switchboards, panelboards, meters and computer power distribution units (ePDUs) that deliver power to critical IT systems.
ByteGrid said it chose Eaton based on its “industry leadership” in power efficiency, reliability and safety.
“We are pleased to supply ByteGrid as they further establish themselves as Cleveland’s leading provider of secure and compliant IT infrastructure solutions,” said Doug Schuster, senior vice president and general manager of Eaton’s Critical Power Solutions Division. “Eaton has a longstanding presence in Ohio, so it is with great pleasure that we support ByteGrid’s efforts to help area businesses maintain operational excellence through reliable and highly efficient power management systems with responsive local service.”
As what company officials say is Cleveland’s largest multi-tenant data centre, ByteGrid’s facility encompasses 333,215-sq.-ft. of Tier 3 data centre space. It features more than 11 carriers on Net and sits on top of one of the largest fiber point of presence (POP) sites in Ohio. In addition, the facility’s location bisects major Midwest and East Coast business centres, making it an “ideal disaster recovery location.”
“ByteGrid looks forward to providing our enterprise and government customers with Eaton’s world class power systems that deliver superior levels of redundancy, fault-tolerance and operating efficiency,” said Mike Clemson, ByteGrid’s vice-president, Critical Infrastructure. “Cleveland businesses — and the Health Tech corridor in particular — have some of the most demanding requirements for performance and compliance that we are proud to be able to deliver.”
