T-Systems boosts cloud with Barcelona data centre

Modular data centre built by Emerson Network Power.


Emerson Network Power has built a modular data centre in Spain for telecoms firm T-Systems.

The facility, located in Barcelona, occupies a total of 1200 square-meters in floorspace with space for up to 300 racks.

The Tier III data centre also includes a Power Use Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.3, 38 integrated modules, and a modular capacity of 1.1 MW. Each module is approximately 31.5 sqm.

The data centre is expected to help T-Systems capitalise on its cloud services growth in Europe while reducing electrical consumption by 30%.

"The construction of this data centre is the cornerstone of T-Systems’ consolidation and transformation programme, and allows us to provide cloud services across Europe," said Raúl Saura, head of dynamic platform services at T-Systems Iberia."

"It was absolutely strategic to quickly and successfully deploy this data centre to fulfil T-Systems’ vision for the future."

Scott Barbour, business leader of Emerson Network Power, added: "We worked relentlessly and in close concert with T-Systems to drive the success of this modular data centre build."
