CBRE | Romonet is selected as a finalist at DCS Awards 2018

CBRE | Romonet and its Big Data Predictive Analytics Platform was a finalist at the DCS Awards 2018 for Data Centre Efficiency Project of the Year.

The DCS Awards recognise the achievement of product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers operating in the data centre arena who have gone above and beyond to improve the industry.

This nomination recognised CBRE | Romonet's analytics platform and its ability to solve the financial, operational and environmental challenges that affect enterprises, data centre service providers, facility operators and those responsible for managing the highly sensitive IT assets businesses are dependent on. One of the main projects presented to the judging panel to illustrate CBRE | Romonet's abilities was the company’s work with Fujitsu UK & Ireland.

Fujitsu’s main objectives were to improve energy efficiency, maximise available capacity and deliver measurable business outcomes. By deploying CBRE | Romonet's solution Fujitsu was able to identify savings of over 9% of the site’s energy per year, improve the site’s PUE and improve the site’s overal operational performance.

Zahl Limbuwala, CEO of CBRE | Romonet, said, “We are extremely pleased that the judging panel has recognised the innovation we are driving in the industry. In the past years we’ve invested significant resources into developing our platform and transforming the data centre industry. As a result, in 2016-2017 we enabled our clients to save over £3m on utility costs without additional capital expenditure, reduce energy usage by 48,000 MWh and decrease CO2 emissions by over 11,550 tons.”

“The data centre market continues to evolve at speed and its leaders are increasingly aware of its impact on our environment and the best solutions for creating and designing highly efficient facilities.”

CBRE | Romonet's platform has won many awards in recent years, including the Critical Environment Future Thinking category at the DCS Awards 2016. The company has been recognised as an innovative company (under $100 million) in the data centre facility industry by IDC.
