With an estimated 50 billion connected devices in play by 2020, the industry is facing a staggering challenge and is growing at an unprecedented pace. Data centres and telecom hubs have become vital parts of our economy. They operate on a dedicated 24/7 basis, 365 days of the year where just one minute of downtime could have massive, even catastrophic implications. Add to that economic fluctuations, organisational growth, new applications, and cloud computing—it’s a lot to manage.
Leveraging on more than 130 years of experience in building efficiency, safety and security, Johnson Controls has developed a unique package, supporting hundreds of data centres and numerous other types of critical facilities across the world. We have evolved over time, transforming our business, and we understand the challenges faced by forward thinking businesses. Whether traditional or modular construction, operations and maintenance, or any level of support in between, we are ready to help develop an optimum data centre solution—reliable, sustainable, and cost-effective—for one location or many.
It’s a solution that provides the control, flexibility, and security required to manage escalating volumes of data. We’re your security and efficiency partner through all phases of the data centre lifecycle.
To overcome challenges such as power management, cooling, or security, organisations today increasingly look to outsource in order to manage data effectively. Over the past couple decades, this has resulted in the creation of ‘mega data centres’ being built by the IT and internet giants. As data centres evolve from traditional, on premise, small scale server room environments to vast 15 MW purpose-built virtualised colocation facilities, the challenges of maintaining a fully secure, protected, and available site are mounting. This rapid growth in data creation, movement, storage, and consumption, in combination with an absolute reliance on data centre availability, comes with some big challenges.
Johnson Controls has a unique, comprehensive portfolio of integrated solutions. We are able to equip data centres with the right products and services to protect and safeguard them against these challenges. Our solutions help to reduce and prevent data center downtime, improving the security of data and equipment, and protecting the environment. These operational demands must take place as efficiently as possible to help reduce costs and enable data centre providers to continue to evolve and grow.
