The Benefits of Data Center Optimization

Are you wondering what stands between you and an optimized data center? First, try addressing these three key issues: Efficiency: how can you make the most of your energy while ensuring reliability and availability? Agility: as business needs change, how can your data center infrastructure keep pace? Visibility: as your data center becomes more critical, can you ensure that it is always functioning at its peak performance? In any data center, these issues are critical in optimizing data center performance, which is increasingly tied to business success. There are six key challenges linked to these three issues: How do you [...]

Extend Your UPS’s Life with Regular Checkups

Is your UPS tired and out of sorts? Does it cough up and sputter, putting data at risk? Do you fear it might go down one day, requiring emergency operation and bringing productivity to a standstill? Like you, uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) require regular checkups to ensure their health―and uptime. These proactive measures keep your UPS from failure—and they can extend its life. In fact, we have specific "health" recommendations based on whether your UPS is less than three years old, three to five years old, or more than five years old. If your UPS is less than 3 years [...]

Single Phase UPS Management, Maintenance and Lifecycle

“How long will my battery last?” and “What is the best practice for maintaining my UPS?” are very common questions posed from UPS owners. Few realize there is more to the UPS than just battery back-up; and that, like all electronics it has a life expectancy. Many of the factors that affect battery life also affect UPS electronics. Some factors may be controlled by taking some preventative measures or simply adjusting some basic UPS settings. With the average cost of data center downtime around $9,000 per minute (according to the Ponemon Institute), keeping uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) up and running [...]

UPS Maintenance Matters

Proactive Maintenance Extends the Life of Your UPS New cars come with a built-in benefit: reliable transportation. But reliability also depends on performing regular scheduled maintenance―changing the oil, rotating the tires, replacing the battery, and more―to prolong the life of your car. Like new cars, regularly maintaining uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) ensures a reliable supply of power and prevents downtime. These proactive measures not only protect your UPS investment from failure, but they can also extend its life. Ready to be proactive?

Lithium-ion Batteries Are Poised to Bring Big Changes to the Data Center UPS Paradigm

New Tech that will Transform Your Data Center It’s clear that lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries stand poised to deliver some dramatic changes to the field of data center uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), mainly due to their longer lifetime along with reduced weight, footprint and cooling requirements compared to lead-acid batteries that are commonly used in UPSs today. Let’s paint a picture of just how dramatic that change might be in small to medium-size data centers. For starters, valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA) take up significant space. This is one of the reasons why large, or even medium-size companies, typically don’t place [...]
