5NINES and CBRE’s Data Centre Solutions (DCS) group have entered into a strategic relationship under which the firms will manage all operational services, including FM and ICT, for data centres within a client’s real estate portfolio.
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 strategic 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, commented: “Our highly successful strategic 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.”
Justin Gilbert, 5NINES Chairman, stated: “During initial client briefings we were delighted to have received excellent feedback. Our venture with CBRE will help more clients transition their data centre portfolio to our new service model.”
