Eaton partners with Zagreb University to help small data centres get more value from their IT infrastructure

Katarina Vukušić

Eaton , a leading provider of power management solutions, and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) at the University of Zagreb have today announced details of the IDEAS (Immersive Datacentre ExplorAtion and Supervision) project. Funded by the European Union, the project aims to work alongside a panel of Eaton’s partners and customers to uncover solutions to help small data centres, with one to ten racks, get more value from their IT infrastructure at a fraction of the cost and without the complexity of traditional solutions.
