Challenges

We understand the need to reduce operating costs AND maximize energy efficiency – never at the expense of availability. For example, to enable worry-free virtualization, Schneider Electric’s cooling strategies combine facility-based perimeter cooling with hot aisle containment and row-based cooling – all monitored and managed via an integrated software platform. This interconnected solution achieves higher availability and better energy savings, while carefully controlling operating expenses.
