CBRE Data Center Solutions announced a partnership with Virtual Power Systems (VPS) to offer VPS’s extensive suite of services that unlock stranded power capacity to CBRE’s global data center clients. CBRE will also be a preferred deployment partner for Virtual Power Systems customers.
Virtual Power Systems Software-Defined Power platform transforms data center power distribution by extending the value of virtualization to the power plane, increasing electrical power utilization and data center IT infrastructure efficiency. Virtual Power Systems’ Intelligent Control of Energy (ICE®) technology tracks real-time data center power usage. It dynamically allocates energy to data center servers, racks and systems to increase utilization and lower costs while simultaneously maintaining, and in many cases, increasing data center uptime.
“Our goal of continually adding value for our clients will be increased with Virtual Power Systems. Through their Software-Defined Power technology, we will enhance system optimization in ways previously unavailable,” said Martin Murphy, CBRE’s Chief Operating Officer, Data Center Solutions. “By virtualizing data center power infrastructure, our clients have the potential to reclaim stranded capacity and enhance their system resiliency while simultaneously lowering costs.”
CBRE Data Center Solutions is the largest mission-critical service provider managing over 700 data centers in 50 countries for colocation providers, hyperscalers, and enterprises. As part of the partnership, CBRE will implement and manage the Virtual Power Systems ICE platform for their clients who adopt the technology, enabling clients to achieve significantly greater output from current data centers and produce positive environmental impact.
“In conversations with our clients, efficiency, agility, scale, and innovation are hot topics. Virtual Power Systems’ ground-breaking Software-Defined Power technology will help them on the journey to autonomous digital infrastructure,” said Zahl Limbuwala, CBRE’s Executive Director of Strategy and Market Enablement, Data Center Solutions. “The Virtual Power Systems solution will help our clients maximize the productivity of every watt of data center capacity.”
“CBRE is the world’s leading data center management company, and we’re excited to work with their engineers and facility managers to enable their clients optimize power utilization,” said Dean Nelson, CEO of Virtual Power Systems. “By unlocking stranded power, data centers can reduce costs and simultaneously increase resiliency.”
