Switch Datacenters has announced the launch of its wholesale Data Center as a Service (DCaaS) program enabling rapid data center deployment on a global scale. The program provides organizations the opportunity to license Switch Datacenters’ patented data center technologies and obtain an integrated, full-service data center infrastructure package with highly energy-efficient cooling (calculated pPUE: 1.03-1.06), modular power infrastructure and racks included.
The DCaaS program is an end-to-end solution including the racks and deployment of security technologies onsite. Automated remote data center management tools would allow data centers on almost any scale to run with little onsite engineering support. The program with a global reach provides for engineering capabilities on-site though, to provide deployment quality assurance and ease of operation.
The DCaaS program is designed to enable organizations worldwide to have a quick-start when deploying enterprise-grade, highly energy-efficient data center infrastructure. The program is aimed at a wide range of potential customers including cloud services providers (CSPs), managed services providers (MSPs), data center owners/operators, hyper-scale data center providers, and real estate owners. Potential licensing partners from a variety of countries worldwide have already shown interest in the Data Center as a Service program, including companies from the U.S., France, Dubai, Sweden, and the African continent.
The Data Center as a Service program offers four major types of options for delivering Switch Datacenters’ in-house developed and patented data center technologies, which include:
- Customer data center ownership – a customer obtains full ownership of the data center build. License fees are paid for design, patents for cooling technology and rapid power deployment, as well as maintenance.
- Hybrid data center delivery – this option provides for shared ownership and shared responsibilities of the data center build. This model helps to remove the burden of high upfront costs from the customer as Switch Datacenters is participating financially. A customer remains in control though, while able to utilize Switch Datacenters patented data center technologies.
- Full service lease data center – this monthly fee package option provides end-to-end data center deployment and operational services, with the highest level of customer care delivered by Switch Datacenters. Without the usual upfront costs, a customer can immediately take advantage of the professional data center infrastructure being implemented.
- Cooling and/or power as a service – a customer only pays for the patented cooling and power technologies being implemented. This could be an ideal option for existing data center builds, for companies intending to green their operations by implementing sustainable, energy-saving data center technologies.
