April 26, 2007 - PRLog -- Comtec Power, the specialists in power services and solutions, today announces a contract with Garmin, world leaders in satellite navigation and GPS, to design and implement a new datacentre for its European headquarters.  Designed to support Garmin’s business continuity and CSR strategies, the datacentre will provide a foundation for the company's 24/7 global operations, and offer greater scale and efficiency.

Nick Ewing, senior solutions consultant for Comtec Power, explains,

"The datacentre is critical to operational success and has a significant role to play in supporting the long-term strategy of the organisation.

"Garmin is keen to deploy a datacentre that meets not only the capacity and business continuity challenges of a global corporation, but also enables significant efficiency gains.  In doing so, they'll also have far lesser impact on the environment, and subsequently result in a reduced energy bill!"

Based upon its Datacentre Eco-Structure blueprint, Comtec Power will design and implement a cutting-edge network critical physical infrastructure that offers agility and resilience against internal and external impacts.

Bob French, Facilities Manager at Garmin said,

"As well as consolidating our remote communications infrastructure into one central location, we're also afforded the opportunity to align the foundation of our IT strategy with the long-term goals of the business. Boardroom issues such as business continuity, CSR and scalability are all accountable within the datacentre, and these are the targets we hope to meet, using Comtec Power's combined expertise in IT and facilities management."
