In an effort to achieve greater efficiencies and environmental sustainability, global sportswear brand Puma Asia Pacific has entrusted Dimension Data with the task of modernising its data centre in Hong Kong.
Within two months, the ICT solutions and services provider designed, planned and implemented a green data centre in which mechanical, lighting, electrical and computer systems were as energy-efficient as possible.
"Besides helping us achieve greater environmental sustainability, the modernised data centre now copes much more easily with the growing demands of our growing business," said Richard Tang, head of IT of Puma Asia Pacific.
According to Dimension Data's press statement, the modular design of the new infrastructure will be able to accommodate Puma's future growth as it allows the data centre capacity to expand up to 48kW through a simple upgrade. The new infrastructure will also enable Puma to easily monitor data centre functions — including cooling, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and network — right down to the rack and regional level.
Puma aims to reduce running costs by up to 30 per cent from all the efficiencies gained from the newly modernised data centre.
