Operations Team of the Year 2017
Often referred to as the 'Oscars' of the data center industry, the DCD Awards have gone global this year, encompassing all regions recognizing worldwide excellence in the data centre industry. DigiPlex’ facility at Ulven has been operating 17 years with solid uptime performance, undertaking a significant systems upgrade in 2016 without interrupting its service - a complex task requiring exceptional technical skill.
The “Data Center Operations Team of the Year – Colo+Cloud” award recognises a team who has excelled in providing the mission critical part of a customer organisation’s IT equation. It highlights a team who has gone above and beyond everyday duties to their customers.
In early 2016, a team of experts from DigiPlex set out to make fundamental improvements to the facility’s energy efficiency and resilience. The improvements involved creating state-of-the-art computer room air conditioning (CRAC) by rebuilding the units in-situ as well as modifying the chilled water pumps. The result is a future-proof data centre, which ensures customers benefit from reduced operating costs.
