Vote for Techbuyer in the 2019 DCS Awards
We are delighted to announce that Techbuyer is a finalist in the ‘Data Centre Consolidation/ Upgrade/ Refresh Project of the Year’ and the ‘Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year’ categories in the DCS Awards.
The DCS Awards are among the most sought-after and prestigious awards in the data centre industry, designed to acknowledge the product designers, manufacturers and suppliers operating in the data centre industry.
Data Centre Consolidation/ Upgrade/ Refresh Project of the Year
Techbuyer was nominated for this award because of our work with the University of Cambridge Network Services. Techbuyer secured a three-year contract to supply Ortial transceivers to University of Cambridge Network Services.
As a result of the project’s implementation, the University of Cambridge Network Services saved up to 90% compared to buying the Cisco alternative – this equated to hundreds of thousands of pounds. They received a lifetime warranty on all SFPs giving the IT team complete peace of mind. With bandwidth speeds increased from around 1GB to 10GB, the University of Cambridge students and staff now experience much faster internet speeds.
Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year
Techbuyer was nominated for this award because of our work with WindCORES - a project by WestfalenWIND IT, which developed the concept of installing data centres inside wind turbines.
Techbuyer recommended an HP ProLiant DL380, additional hard drives, memory, power supply kit and smart array which were all tested in-house and came with a Techbuyer three-year warranty for peace of mind. At €2436, the solution represented around a 65% saving compared to the new price of €7097. With the data centre powered by renewable energy and refurbished servers, WindCORES demonstrated how to avoid materials wastage with quality refurbished product.
Voting is now open and closes on the 3rd May 2019. We would really appreciate your vote!
