"Space within a colocation data centre is a rich commodity and as a high-performance operator, facilities are always looking for ways we can maximise our colocation capacity. Thanks to Power Control’s support, we’ve been able to view and test the Huawei UPS5000-H which is able to provide the power and resilience we need as a data centre operator but across a considerably reduced footprint. This is a game-changing innovation in power delivery.”
