Connected buildings company, Honeywell and digital infrastructure and continuity solutions provider, Vertiv announced that two companies will work together to provide integrated solutions to optimize data center sustainability, resiliency, and operational performance. The duo announced that the new solution expected to be available before 2020 ends. It combines Honeywell operational technology experience with Vertiv’s critical digital infrastructure solutions.
Sustainable and efficient data center operations
Two companies are building the partnership on Honeywell’s building management systems, operational software, and safety and security products along with Vertiv’s uninterruptible power supply, power distribution, thermal management, infrastructure monitoring, and modular solutions to enable operators to integrate multiple domains of data within a data center. The companies will be able to leverage building-operations data to drive optimization of operations, reducing energy use and costs while improving data center performance and sustainability. Vimal Kapur, President and CEO, Honeywell Building Technologies said,
“Data centers face similar challenges as other buildings that have disparate systems that were not designed to work together, but they experience these challenges on a greater scale. We look forward to collaborating with Vertiv to offer integrated solutions that make it easier for data center operators to distill the mountains of data they pull from their equipment into actions that create more efficient and environmentally friendly operations.”
