Kell Systems' server cabinets chosen by charities
RNLI and Macmillan Cancer Support have installed Kell server cabinets as a cost effective alternative to dedicated server rooms.
Kell server cabinets enable the deployment of servers and network hardware directly in the office workspace, removing the need for dedicated computer rooms.
The charities now benefit from lower costs, reduced power consumption and low noise.
For Macmillan Cancer Support, Kell donated a PSE18 server cabinet for use in the charity's office in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.
As the office is open plan, the Kell cabinet means Macmillan can put its servers in the main office without building a dedicated computer room.
Kell also provided a PSE12 server cabinet to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
This was installed by Hull-based IT company Fibrestream, as part of a project to provide high speed broadband for RNLI at Britain's only full-time lifeboat station at Spurn Point, East Yorkshire.
The lifeboat crews, who are based at the station for days at a time, now have access to a 100Mbps fibre-optic internet connection, which has replaced the previous slow dial-up link.
In typical usage, Kell's cabinets reduce server noise by up to 83 per cent, CO2 emissions by 96.5 per cent, floor space by 90 per cent, operating costs by 98 per cent, and capital costs by up to 80 per cent (compared to a server room).
Global petrochemical group, Shell, has selected Kell server cabinets for its Virtual Reality communications suites in Aberdeen, Scotland, and Stavanger, Norway.
