A large data centre is an industrial-scale operation using as much electricity as a small town.
The demand for data centres has increased substantially due to the rise of cloud services and the volume of data created on a daily basis worldwide.
The main priority of data centre operators is the security of their energy supply and back up generation. Pulse is a recognised market leader in data centre energy procurement in the UK and therefore an ideal partner.
Data Centres incorporate redundant or backup components and infrastructure for power supply, data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g. air conditioning, fire suppression) and various security devices.
Regional variations in energy costs can have a substantial impact on profitability (see the graph below). Pulse can provide initial financial modelling of energy costs to assist in deciding where to locate new data centres.
