Delta UPS and DCIM solutions power new, green data center and data lab for Bytesnet.

Delta, a global leader in thermal and power management solutions, announced that its DPH500 modular UPS (uninterruptible power supply) and InfraSuite Manager data center information management system are now in operation at Bytesnet’s new d’Root data center at Zernike Campus Groningen in the Netherlands. Bytesnet is a regional colocation and network services provider with two main datacenter locations in Rotterdam and Groningen. In addition to a 2,500 m2 data floor, the 6,500 m2 facility also houses a data lab where research and education take place. As a tier 3+ facility, reliability was an extremely important factor in choosing the power infrastructure.

At the heart of the d’Root data center is a 6-megawatt power system. The three-phase modular DPH500 Delta UPS that Bytesnet has chosen for its new data center was one of the keys to minimizing the facility’s environmental footprint. With its exceptionally high power density, Delta’s DPH500 UPS requires only 50% as much space as competing solutions. This Delta UPS also offers industry-leading AC-AC efficiency of 96.5%, resulting in considerably lower energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and costs for Bytesnet.

Peter de Jong, CEO of Bytesnet, said, “Here, we really are laying the foundation for the 21st century economy. In Delta, we have found a valuable partner that is with us all the way.” And the new facility in Groningen is pioneering in more ways than just its advanced power equipment. Bytesnet has partnered on this project with local universities, regional ICT vendors, and the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, Astron. In the d’Root data lab, students, scientists, professionals, and Bytesnet staff and customers work together on developing the data technologies of the future.
