Romonet provides TCO and Performance Optimisation analysis for Virtus Data Centres
London, November 20th 2013: Romonet, a leading provider of advanced data center predictive modeling tools, announced at the DatacenterDynamics Converged London 2013 conference that it has been appointed by Virtus to assist with its TCO and performance optimization analysis on LONDON2; Virtus’ new flagship data centre facility in West London. The analysis, based on Romonet’s proprietary data centre performance analysis and optimization software and extensive database, will help Virtus make important technology and operational decisions.
The new Virtus facility is designed to meet the growing demand for scalable, reliable, on-demand colocation services and will be the first in London to deploy a new ground breaking fresh-air, evaporative cooling technology that dramatically decreases energy consumption; bringing site power usage effectiveness (PUE) to below 1.2 and so delivering substantial savings to Virtus’ clients. The Romonet analysis results help Virtus to demonstrate the performance of their facility to their customers with a high degree of accuracy and confidence.
Neil Cresswell, CEO of Virtus commented: “We chose Romonet as our preferred partner for this project because they were able to provide a turnkey solution covering a comprehensive assessment of the new eco efficient design, construction of the facility and subsequent operation on completion. While we were confident that the design delivered the lowest TCOs for our customers, the Romonet report was able to reinforce this for us.”
“We are very pleased to be working with such an innovative organization”, said Zahl Limbuwala, CEO of Romonet. “We hope that Virtus will continue to gain benefit from the results of the study; in particular the modelling work around the financial and efficiency implications of decisions that must be made through the life cycle of a new facility.”
Romonet introduced its award winning Romonet Software Suite in November 2010 with the aim of helping businesses run their data centres in a more efficient and cost effective manner. The unique predictive modeling capabilities of the product allow its clients to control costs and reduce risk, by improving financial forecasting of data center equipment, IT platforms & workloads.
Because Romonet models the environment rather than metering it, the software can provide decision-making data before decisions are made, enabling organizations to make more informed choices.
