Date: 18th December 2009
PGS’ data centre, designed and built by Keysource won the ‘Innovation in the medium data centre’ category at the Data Centre Dynamics Leaders Awards on 15th December.
PGS fought off three other shortlisted finalists to win the category which recognises the efficient design and operation of ‘medium’ data centres – between 20 and 500 racks. The category states that the medium data centre brings its own challenges of design, operation and optimisation and whilst market attention has traditionally been focused on very large, flagship projects, the medium data centre represents for many UK organisations their principal IT facility and therefore the core of their mission-critical business.
This award brings Keysource’s award total for 2009 to three after earlier winning entries in the ‘Environmental Project of the Year’ category at the 2009 UK IT Industry Awards and ‘Green IT Innovation of the Year’ category at the 2009 Information Age Awards .
