CBRE Expands Data Centre Solutions Offering With New Converged Data Centre Model
CBRE’s Global Workplace Solutions business now manages both data centre technology physical infrastructure—hardware and software, as well as data centre facilities.
The converged data centre model encompasses services across the full real estate and IT lifecycle, including those in the Advisory and Project Management disciplines, such as: consulting, capital financing, site selection, development and project management, technology workload migration, and disposition of facilities.
The company revealed that the integrated offering of technology and facilities management as well as advisory services is called the “Converged Data Centre” model.
“Our converged model provides a way to tie business-critical IT and mission-critical facilities together within one value-stream-based funding model,” said Jim Harding, Global President of data centre solutions for GWS.
“This ultimately will help our clients be more competitive and achieve their digital transformation priorities.”
The technology scope of services within CBRE’s data centre solutions group spans vendor-agnostic strategic consulting, such as cloud migration strategy and planning, data centre planning and fit-out, technical implementation and support, hardware maintenance, data destruction and asset recycling.
CBRE currently delivers technology services to over 30 enterprise, colocation and hyper-scale clients across the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific and provides facilities management services to over 800 data centres worldwide on behalf of corporations across sectors including: financial services, technology, media, healthcare, energy and utilities, life sciences, retail and real estate investment trusts.
In the past five years, CBRE has completed more than 1,000 data centre transactions, spanning 348 cities and 104 global markets.
Last month, CRBE Data Centre Solutions launched the sale of Axis, a data centre development opportunity in Slough, the UK on behalf of London based investment firm Columbia Threadneedle.
The company revealed that the 16.5-acre freehold data centre site makes room of the opportunity to develop a 132MW hyper-scale data centre or a multi-facility colocation campus.
