APC by Schneider Electric announced the “next-generation” InfraStruxure—a scalable and adaptable data centre architecture that, says the company, reduces cycle time and complexity from concept to design to installation. InfraStruxure integrates power, cooling, racks, security and management in a modular form factor, and is a building block of Schneider Electric’s energy management architecture portfolio, EcoStruxure. The new generation of InfraStruxure promises a 25% increase in power and cooling capacity and a 15% smaller footprint, while reducing cost by 15%. A core feature of the InfraStruxure architecture is the management software, which provides an open, vendor-neutral platform. New capabilities include: Symmetra PX 100kW, 250kW and 500kW double-conversion UPS with internal modular design; modular power distribution unit (PDU); InRow OA and refrigerant distribution unit (RDU); and NetShelter SX networking enclosures.
