According to Vertiv’s news release, the partnership builds on Honeywell’s building management systems (BMS), operational software, and safety and security products, along with Vertiv’s Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), power distribution, thermal management, infrastructure monitoring and modular solutions to enable hyper-scale, large-scale, co-location and e-business operators.

Companies will leverage data building operations to drive business optimisation, reduce energy use and cost while improving data centre performance and sustainability.

“Business continuity is more critical than ever, with more people working, learning and connecting remotely, driving a simultaneous explosion in data and demand for new data centres. There are need and opportunity for data centres to be more efficient, reliable and sustainable,” said Rob Johnson, CEO, Vertiv. “Our collaboration with Honeywell will help us to collectively better serve our data centre customers. Our offerings complement each other to provide greater value to data centre operators.”
