Brasilia, Brazil, October 11, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Malaysian based green data center equipment manufacturer Green Data Center LLP (GDC) has won the coveted Chairman’s Award at the bi-annual Global ICT Excellence Awards 2016 held this year in Brazil for its ground breaking Eco2 data center cooling technology. The Global ICT Excellence Awards is organized by the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA). Founded in 1978, WITSA is a leading consortium of ICT industry association members from over 82 countries around the world. WITSA's members represent more than 90 percent of the world ICT market. The Chairman’s Award won by GDC is the crème de la crème and the most prestigious of the five award categories recognized by WITSA.
Matthew Rajendra, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GDC received the award from WITSA Chairman Mr. Santiago Gutierrez during the World Congress of Information Technology 2016 held at the International Convention Center of Brazil. The company’s innovation named Eco2 is a next generation green data centre cooling technology that features the world’s only renewable, biodegradable, sustainable and non-toxic ICT specific coolant that reduces data centers’ energy consumption and carbon footprint by half. “The technology also significantly reduces the cost to build and deploy a data center by seventy percent” said Mr. Rajendra.
Mr. Gutierrez pointed out that WITSA’s Global ICT Excellence Awards are widely regarded as the Olympics of the ICT industry with the goal of identifying outstanding organizations that have demonstrated exceptional achievement in using ICT to benefit societies, governments, organizations and individuals.
“GDC is honored to be among the globally recognized ICT industry leaders to have received this prestigious award, which highlights our collaborative excellence in harnessing our advanced technology platform and innovation to help solve global problems. This showcases the hard work of our world-class team and the success in working with our partners,” said Mr. Rajendra. This award is the latest in a string of world class awards won by the organization in the span of one year. In May of this year GDC was awarded a United Nations ITU WSIS award for the E-Environment category in Geneva. GDC won the International APICTA award in Colombo last October for the Best in Sustainability and Environment Technology category. Prior to that GDC won two other national APICTA awards in Malaysia.
Industry sources say that the startup company founded by Rajendra came out of stealth mode last year after five years of testing and is currently expanding its portfolio of Eco2 certified hardware which include enterprise servers, networking devices and firewalls. The company is also on course to opening its first two international offices in Silicon Valley and London by year end. With two data center customers in hand in Malaysia worth US$2,250,000 and a newly secured project worth US$6,500,000, the company is now looking beyond Malaysian shores to expand globally. North America and Europe are key markets for the upstart company and the low cost solution to data center cooling coupled with environmental stewardship qualities are very compelling propositions for data center operators globally.
