  • Power and Cooling

    Ensure that mission critical workloads are never interrupted

    Your data center’s power and cooling needs are neither simple nor constant. When workloads grow, or demands on digital services spike, equipment draws more power and temperatures rise. Scaling up your data center also changes power and cooling requirements. Only by ensuring your environment is prepared for every scenario can you mitigate risks such as costly downtime and hardware failure.

    As an Elite Partner of Schneider Electric, the global energy management leader, GBM can answer all of your power and cooling needs to:

    • Meet energy goals and standards with industry-leading system and design and technologies, which can reduce operational costs
    • Maintain data center availability with power and cooling designed to mitigate assessed risks
    • Be ready for future growth with solution design that considers modularity, scalability and the workloads of tomorrow

    Whether your objective is to improve the energy efficiency of your data center, or you need to ensure that mission critical workloads are never interrupted, GBM has the experience and solutions to protect your equipment – and your business.

  • Physical Security Solutions

    Secure your data center site and tightly integrate physical security

    Information security is among the biggest challenges faced by organizations today – and physical security should be the foundation of every organization’s strategy.

  • Data Center Testing and Commissioning

    Identify risks and issues, and verify quality and performance of your data center

    The success of your data center depends on the resilience of its many support systems. Resilience must be comprehensive and proven, if you are to mitigate risks such as data loss, damage to equipment and failure of mission-critical systems. The right way to prepare is a comprehensive commissioning and testing process, which identifies risks and issues, and verifies quality and performance. GBM has the expertise and systems to provide complete solutions, which can be integrated with our broader data center solutions.

    GBM’s data center testing and commissioning solutions follow a 5-point plan that enables your organization to:

    1. Detect equipment issues before installation with factory acceptance testing (FAT)
    2. Ensure quality of all components with quality control and component verification
    3. Verify performance of all components with functional component testing (FCT)
    4. Verify performance of individual systems with functional system testing (FST)
    5. Verify performance of your installed data center with integrated systems testing

    Failure of even small components, such as network cables or cooling fans, could negatively impact your operations, or even cause hardware failure and data loss. GBM is the partner to help you minimize these risks, with cost-efficient solutions that prove – and improve – your data center’s resilience.
