xIntegra a ‘new approach to data centre systems engineering’

Eaton’s xIntegra is a new integrated systems engineering approach to powering systems level performance in a data centre at every stage of its lifecycle

“Optimal design, performance, and efficiency are key to a data centre’s commercial success.”

Those are the words of Karina Rigby, President, Critical Systems, EMEA at Eaton on the launch of xIntegra. The approach by Eaton ensures optimised system level performance and integrity at every stage of a data centre’s life – from design to implementation, operation to retirement. This represents a shift from the traditional mix-and-match design and procurement of individual elements.

 “We believe success requires all the elements that make up the electrical infrastructure in a data centre to function as an end-to-end system. This can be achieved through designed-in optimisation at both component and system level. That is why we have developed xIntegra,” Rigby added.

System engineering encompasses the design, integration, and management of interconnected systems in data centres, systems engineering ensures the seamless collaboration between servers, storage, networking, and cooling systems.

The approach addresses factors like efficiency, security, and scalability for the entire lifecycle of a facility.

“Eaton’s new systems engineered approach focuses on the design, implementation, operation, and retirement of a fully connected system,” said Neil Potter, Business Development Manager for Electrical Systems and Solutions at Eaton. “With the introduction of xIntegra, Eaton is applying its knowledge and expertise to bring a new level of insight and align its portfolio with how operators see the data centre environment.

Considering the ‘bigger picture’ of a data centre, xIntegra moves beyond the traditional functional blocks in design. It’s a logical way of thinking when connecting systems, understanding decisional impacts, and optimising overall performance. It’s time to think differently.
