Datapod, a modular data center supplier delivering solutions that can be manufactured in 12 weeks, shipped to any location on the planet and assembled on site in 72 hours, has entered into a supply agreement with Eaton Australia.
In an effort to streamline its manufacturing, Datapod has entered into a supply agreement with Eaton Australia. Under the agreement, Datapod will implement Eaton power quality management equipment into its data centers. In the future these will be augmented by Eaton power distribution and security products.
“When you are manufacturing a modular data center, each time you begin a new project you find you have to raise purchase orders with 30 or 40 different component suppliers,” said Managing Director Datapod, Scott Carr. “With Eaton, we are able to source multiple best-of-breed products from a single supplier.”
Mr. Carr said that, as well as the range and quality of components available from Eaton, the company’s willingness to adapt was also attractive to Datapod. “Eaton will modify their products and services to enable them to work more effectively within the Datapod system. We don’t find ourselves having to try to fit square pegs into round holes.”
