Final Frontier Sees Next Generation Launch

18 January 2017 | Updated 01 January 1970

The CBRE Group commercial real estate services firm and a provider of data centre facilities management services, and 5Nines Global Holdings, a global provider of enterprise colocation and wholesale data centre solutions, has announced the launch of what the pair are describing as the 'next-generation' of data centre service solutions.

The firms will manage all operational services, including FM and ICT, for data centres within a client’s real estate portfolio.

A spokes person said: "The firms have developed an innovative collaboration model that will enable clients to align their IT workload and demand within their existing data centres whilst significantly reducing future demand for capital replacement and upgrades. This model will significantly accelerate a client’s transition to a public and private cloud platform, providing long term economic advantages whilst improving service delivery standards."

 The relationship is already operational in the United States and Europe and it is expected to be extended into Asia Pacific and South America, as more clients follow suit.

 Paul Saville-King, President, CBRE DCS, said: “Our relationship with 5Nines will transform data centre delivery. We anticipate an increasing number of global clients will look to follow suit and adopt this new model.”
