Johnson Controls named preferred provider of Cisco modular data centres

The global multi-industrial company will help Cisco design, cool and monitor next-generation data centres.

Johnson Controls, a global multi-industrial company, has been named Cisco's preferred provider to construct, cool and monitor its modular data centres.

Using a scalable method to create or update existing data centres, Johnson Controls' modular data centres consume less energy but provide the IT, security, fire controls and architectural benefits of a stationary data centre.

Johnson Controls also remotely monitors modular cooling and power services and deploy trained service technicians to immediately address problems.

The modular data center solution was designed in collaboration with Cisco and can be deployed anytime and anywhere. The modular process shortens the construction timeframe and is able to reduce a customer's capital expense by up to 30 percent, according to Johnson Control's media statement.

Besides that, the modular approach optimises power usage effectiveness (PUE) levels. It was thus awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifications, an internationally-recognised rating system.

"Our relationship with Johnson Controls will allow us to meet the increasingly sophisticated power, cooling and monitoring requirements of data centres in the cloud-mobile era," said Nick Earle, senior vice president of Worldwide Cloud Sales and Go-to-Market at Cisco.
