APC to extend service to Saudi
Dubai, December 27, 2010
APC by Schneider Electric, the leader in power and cooling services, will extend its data centre service capabilities to Saudi Arabia to support the operation and maintenance of Tier-3 and Tier-4 data centres in the Kingdom.
APC’s in-house technical experts in cooling and power services are now ready to support operations and maintenance of installed tier 3 and 4 datacenters in the Kingdom, and are now available 24/7 on a call basis, a statement said.
According to a Gartner report, energy-related costs account for around 12 per cent of overall data centre expenditure and firms are struggling to cap this spending. The report also indicates that power and cooling costs are likely to increase further over the next few years as organisations expand their technology infrastructure in the post-recession phase.
“Since the establishment of our offices in Saudi Arabia three years ago, we have tried to provide high class after-sales support that guarantees customer satisfaction,” said Jeff De Sousa, country vice-president, APC by Schneider Electric, Saudi Arabia.
“After investing in sales and marketing functions to support operations, we aim to lead the market by offering service capabilities and software management for small, medium and extra-large data centres. This is to support the demand for the large number of mission critical data centres complementing APC’s InfrastruXure architecture,” he added.
Proactive maintenance minimises data centre downtime and APC’s team of technical experts will offer round-the-clock services for troubleshooting and emergency repair.
“The InfrastruXure architecture offers highly scalable and adaptable next-generation data centers, which enable virtualisation and cloud computing,” De Sousa continued. “We see this as a tremendous opportunity to not only manage our installed base of consumers, but also expand our market share.” – TradeArabia News Service
