Global IT service, software and technology company Unisys operates a number of critical, highly secure data centre facilities that deliver a range of colocation and managed services. Keysource was engaged to undertake an audit of the St Just House Data Centre in Milton Keynes to evaluate the opportunities to modernise the facility’s M&E infrastructure and design. The aim was to improve overall efficiency and performance and allow for greater IT capacity, including high density. Operational insights were combined with a technically aligned approach to ensure that all aspects were evaluated against the need to reduce risk; not impact live systems; and the likely investment required to upgrade.
After carrying out a capacity and energy efficiency assessment Keysource identified a series of simple but effective tactical improvements that would provide a moderate increase in efficiency of around 10%-15%.
Overall the Keysource consultancy provided simple and clear recommendations for improved performance which met both the short and long term needs of Unisys.
