DCS Awards 2019

The DCS awards are designed to reward the product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers operating in data centre arena. The Awards recognise the achievements of the vendors and their business partners alike and this year encompass a wider range of both facilities and information technology award categories designed to address all of the main areas of the datacentre market in Europe.

The DCS Awards categories provide a wide-range of options for organisations involved in the IT industry to participate, so you are encouraged to get your nominations made as soon as possible for the categories that you think you have achieved something outstanding or where you have a product that stands out from the rest.


The DCS Awards panel will validate entries and announce the final shortlist to be forwarded for voting by the readership of the DCS stable of publications in April. The winners will be announced at a gala evening at the Grange, St Paul’s hotel in central London on 16 May 2019.

What better way to reward your team for their hard work than to take one day off their busy schedule and to celebrate your success?

You can expect an evening to remember: high-class venue, exceptional food and excellent entertainment and of course, proud award winners.


Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd (UPSL), a subsidiary of Kohler Co, and the exclusive supplier of PowerWAVE UPS, generator and emergency lighting products, is changing its name to Kohler Uninterruptible Power (KUP), effective March 4th, 2019.

UPSL’s name change is designed to ensure the company’s name reflects the true breadth of the business’ current offer, which now extends to UPS systems, generators, emergency lighting inverters, and class-leading 24/7 service, as well as highlighting its membership of Kohler Co. This is especially timely as next year Kohler will celebrate 100 years of supplying products for power generation and protection.
