Hewlett-Packard unveiled one of the most ambitious data center consolidation projects ever, which consolidated 85 data centers worldwide into six larger centers located in three U.S. cities – Atlanta, Houston and Austin. However, distributing the power in these mission critical facilities required ultra energy efficiency that was unmatched in the industry.


PQI was selected as the ultra energy efficient transformer source for numerous 500 kVA transformers. These transformers were custom made for HP and were beyond any industry standard for efficiency in the industry.


The consolidation will help HP reduce its IT spending by approximately $1 billion in the coming years. The facilities also will serve as a showcase for HP Adaptive Infrastructure products and services. The data centers will provide HP with more dependable, simplified operations. This effort will enable faster delivery of new technologies, services and information and provide room for growth and improved business continuity, while significantly reducing costs. And HP will enjoy the highest power quality in the industry as a result of the PQI ultra energy efficient transformers.
