In Mexico, where the data center industry is growing rapidly, colocation and cloud services providers compete fiercely for market share.
In order for Cloud Magna to compete, they needed to build a data center certified as ICREA Level 4 and Uptime Institute Tier III. Their goal was to provide the highest availability on the Mexican market, and they chose Schneider Electric™ to help equip the data center that would get them there.
To achieve these certifications, Schneider Electric and its elite partner CAR Ingenieria Instalaciones, designed the Cloud Magna Data Center with a complete, facility-spanning strategy in mind. A summary of the solution:
Power and cooling:
Schneider Electric provided high-efficiency, high-reliability power and cooling via two of the following units:
- Symmetra™ PX 150 kW UPSs
- Uniflair™ Leonardo perimeter air conditioners
- Redundant, 175-ton Uniflair chillers
In order to provision a high-density pod, Schneider Electric brought in the fully modular InfraStruxure™ solution. This solution includes racks, cabinets, PDUs, rack PDUs, InRow™ cooling units, NetBotz™ environmental monitoring, and our DCIM solution, StruxureWare™ Data Center Expert software.
First, we analyzed the entire building’s energy supply, distribution, and management components. For infrastructure, we provided an RM6 substation and two 1250 kVAs transformers, as well as our energy monitoring solution, StruxureWare Power Monitoring Expert software.
A high standard for availability
To achieve the aforementioned certifications, the Cloud Magna data center went through meticulous security and efficiency protocols from design to commissioning. Consultants and certification bodies performed rigorous on-site validations tests in order to certify the data center as ICREA Level 4 and Uptime Institute Tier III.
Today, Cloud Magna provides energy-efficient cloud services to corporations, government offices, small- and medium-size businesses, academic institutions, and entrepreneurs. With electrical and IT physical infrastructure from Schneider Electric, Cloud Magna has been able to operate one of the most reliable data centers in Mexico.
