IoT & EcoStruxure: Data Center Solutions for Mainfreight | Schneider Electric


New Zealand, being a small country at the bottom of the world, we’re highly reliant on the import and export of goods. Without the ability to move freight in and out of the country, the economy would suffer. My name is David Hall, I’m the Group IT Infrastructure Manager for Mainfreight. The decisions we make today we should consider as part of our future and our growth. Forty years ago, we were just a trucking company, and we’ve grown to having warehouses all around the world. Schneider Electric have provided our data center solutions and the ongoing management and support of those solutions, in our data centers globally. Their EcoStruxure solution provides us with the necessary smarts to run our core infrastructure out of New Zealand. To accommodate where we see our business moving with the demands on data storage and analytics, we’ve constructed a new data center here in New Zealand. The ability for it to grow as we grow, the ability for us to add more batteries to the UPS, the ability to expand power, the ability to expand cooling, the software smarts to give us that management and monitoring that we needed, those are all key reasons why we chose the EcoStruxure solution. Mainfreight’s worked in partnership with Schneider Electric for 10 years now. In terms of our 100-year vision, Schneider will play a key part in the ongoing growth of Mainfreight. The country is a beautiful country. We play an important part in the ability to keep our country moving forward.
