Loughborough, UK, February 18, 2015 - Datacentre and Cloud infrastructure and utilities specialist on365 is giving UK multiple location enterprises, SMBs, and datacentre solution providers simpler in-house private cloud facilities as part of their overall Cloud-based model by launching a new containerised datacentre that gives a 60% price reduction over Uptime Institute models.
on365’s simple-to-deploy unit also gives companies a practical way to lift potential power, cooling and space constraints often experienced when deploying converged infrastructure to meet fast turnaround business needs.
The standard Uptime Institute cost model lists a typical OPEX cost of US$10/watt of power to provide a datacentre to an existing building? against a ground-breaking US$3.50/watt for on365’s new containerised datacentre, including a re-locatable building.
Operational costs are based on a PUE guarantee of 1.1, so they are also very competitive for companies or solution providers to own or operate.
To be launched at the Data Centre World show in London on March 11, on365’s new datacentres combine the modular pre-fabricated datacentre solution fitted out with UPS, close control cooling, 19” racks, PDUs, fire detection, access control, local power/lighting and remote monitoring. All units are fitted integrally and supplied as a single plug ’n’ play solution, ready-to-take servers, which can also be enhanced with factory fitted options such as a standby generator and CCTV. Both standard and bespoke options are supported by on365’s 25-year datacentre design and installation know-how.
on365’s initiative gives converged infrastructure providers and their customers a fast, reliable, economical and customised solution where they find themselves constrained by existing power, cooling or space limits when looking to deploy systems like the VCE Vblock range or its equivalents. Not having enough cooling in an existing datacentre need not prevent businesses from taking advantage of this technology.
The business case for containerised/pre-fabricated datacentres is well-known, with faster deployment, fixed costs, low risks, higher quality, known outcomes and the ability to take the asset to another location.

“Chris Smith, sales director at on365, said: “Companies may want to have their own private Cloud facility or provide a localised resource to their business but have been deterred by the up-front costs. Often they are quoted Rolls-Royce solutions when they would readily accept an Audi Estate version with a few factory fitted options. Everyone is different and the choice is definitely there. Using an enterprise-grade, low Capex/Opex datacentre that fits in a single parking space, buyers can give their business the flexibility of Cloud while containing the risk.”
