London-based datacentre operator LDeX Group has secured energy pricing at its LDeX 1 facility until 2017
The company provides energy efficient datacentre and network services from their NW London facility with a 500 rack capacity.
“In these uncertain economic times, we believe fixing the cost of energy until 2017 will offer our current and prospective clients peace of mind and operational cost guarantees that are important when running energy intensive server and storage infrastructure,” said Patrick Doyle, CCO and co-founder of LDeX.
“With power and cooling for a typical datacentre accounting for over 60% of costs, this move will allow us to fix pricing for clients’ power consumption, racks and network services while wholesale energy markets are particularly volatile.”
LDeX have shown strong commitment to energy management best practice with ISO50001 certification, 100% renewable energy use and industry-leading PUE levels and this move reinforces its dedication, the firm said.
Doyle continued, “We see this as a chance for enterprise clients operating tight business models as well as those service providers from the cloud, hosting, managed services and SaaS sector who operate on competitive margins, the opportunity to offer their internal stakeholders and end-users/clients some guarantees around OPEX and end-user pricing for a relatively long period of time.”
“As we continue to work towards better operational efficiencies around Energy Management, we expect LDeX 1 to run at industry leading PUE levels, the cost savings of which we will pass on to clients in reduced power costs,” added Doyle. “This commitment along with securing energy pricing for the next 3 years makes LDeX 1 a highly-attractive partner for clients looking for best-of-breed colocation solutions.”
