Tier5 moves to Dell Modular Data Centre

Tier5 had adopted Dell's new Modular Data Centre offering as a means of expanding data centre facilities to its own customers in a move expected to significantly reduce power costs. The data centre consultation group and hosting company will be the first organisation in the world to deploy the MDC, which is consists of cooling and power modules that 'snap' together to create 'building blocks' for its customers.

 

“Ultimately, the collaborative effort between Dell and Tier5 yielded a very practical solution,” Tier5 founder, Marty Gauvin, said on the move to Dell's MDC. “…[It was] designed not just by server people, but by data centre and server people working in tandem.” The MDC solution houses some 12 standard server racks in each module and up to 2,500 servers; an option that Gauvin said allows for greater flexibility for the company.
