Ponemon Institute and Vertiv are pleased to present the results of an original benchmark study to determine average costs to support 1 kW of compute capacity in today’s data centers. The purpose of this study is to analyze the major cost components in supporting compute capacity so that organizations can more effectively identify opportunities to reduce costs and make informed decisions about future capacity.

For decades, data center uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS) have predominantly relied on valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries for backup transitional power. Increasingly, businesses are looking for alternatives to the VRLA, such as lithium-ion batteries.
Edge computing is evolving beyond caching, and will require more compute power and intelligence to manage the movement of data, say analysts, who predict this will create business opportunities for data center providers in 2017.
As it relaunches as a private company with a new brand, Vertiv says it will be able to be more nimble in addressing a changing landscape for data center power and cooling products.
Ponemon Institute and Vertiv are pleased to present the results of the first Vertiv Data Center IQ Quiz, part of the Data Center Performance Benchmark Series, which provides an industry-wide perspective on Availability, Security, Productivity, Cost and Speed of Deployment. The purpose of this study is to determine the domain knowledge of data center personnel while also collecting data on application of best practices and current operating conditions within participants’ data centers.
Ponemon Institute and Vertiv are pleased to present the results of the latest Cost of Data Center Outages study. Previously published in 2010 and 2013, the purpose of this third study is to continue to analyze the cost behavior of unplanned data center outages. According to our new study, the average cost of a data center outage has steadily increased from $505,502 in 2010 to $740,357 today (or a 38 percent net change).
