APC by Schneider Electric Acquires Kell Systems
BY PAUL QUIGLEY
ECM Plus +++ Kell Systems has just been acquired by datacentre tech leviathan APC by Schneider.
According to the UK manufacturing company, its ‘Server Room in a box’ boasts a soundproofed IT cabinet that enables server and network deployment wherever and whenever needed, saving space, costs and deployment times.
The range of Kell Server Cabinets will boost APC’s existing datacentre offerings to include office server storage that can be operated independently of or in conjunction with traditional server rooms, cutting capital expenditure and running costs.
Kell said that the combination with APC by Schneider would generate opportunities for a unified business. For APC, the addition of Kell Systems’ office server enclosures will create an integrated portfolio.
Laurent Vernerey, President and CEO of APC by Schneider Electric commented: “The addition of Kell Systems to our existing portfolio is an opportunity to give our combined business market leadership in the server and network room/closet environment, and to bring innovation in the rack market, that uniquely differentiates us in the small systems space.”
