Keysource collaborated with DellEMC to support multiple edge data centre deployments at key locations across EMEA.

The micro Modular Data Centres (MDCs), designed by DellEMC’s Extreme Scale Infrastructure team, helped a multinational automotive company in the roll-out of its connected vehicle technology – deploying semi-autonomous vehicles.

Keysource carried out the planned deployment and is responsible for the ongoing maintenance and facilities management (sustaining) for the MDCs at locations including Finland, Dubai, Czech Republic and Germany.

Keysource’s expert teams worked closely with project stakeholders to ensure all requirements were delivered using in-house capability, which greatly helped in overcoming regional challenges.

This was enhanced with an over-arching management capability which could liaise with multiple stakeholders within DellEMC and the client team. This ensured deliverables were met and user expectation were successfully managed.

On completion of each delivery phase a seamless transition to operational management (sustaining) was put in place which provides remote monitoring, technical support, preventative maintenance and emergency response to  sites 24x7x365.

As part of the deployments, Keysource provided geographically located service and maintenance for the ongoing facilities management (sustaining) of the edge MDC.

“The fact that these MDCs are in widely different and sometimes hostile environments, presents an array of different challenges for their maintenance and, having been involved in this project from the start, we are best placed to deliver this.”
