The lithium-ion battery (LIB) offers many benefits when used in conjunction with data center uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. Still, data center professionals have legitimate questions about the operational and safety aspects of this emerging technology and how it compares to traditional valve-regulated, lead-acid (VRLA) batteries. Download the new white paper from Vertiv that addresses common questions about the use of lithium-ion batteries in the critical space.
Lithium-ion batteries may have. been a common source of power for various consumer devices for years, but the they now being adopted, as well, for use with Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) applications, “as a means of ensuring uptime for mission-critical infrastructure in data centers.” A new white paper from Vertiv pointed out that for companies looking to deploy distributed computing and edge networks, lithium-ion batteries are well suited for use with IT deployments in remote locations.
The speed of disruption and the current data surge cycle continues to demand transformation in the data center industry. The response to these demands bring prefabricated modular (PFM) data centers to the arena – delivering low-risk, high-value implementations with the added benefits of faster delivery and easier on-site assembly. Download the new white paper from Vertiv provides clarity on the specific benefits that PFM data centers can offer to the future of the data center industry.
The list of possible disasters seems endless: flood, fire, cyberattack, hurricane, terrorism, blackout and more. Critical engineering expert Kevin Rosen of Stream Data Centers discusses the importance of disaster planning in maintaining uptime and continuing mission-critical operations during and after a crisis.
The list of possible disasters to prepare for can seem overwhelming for any business in any location, especially since organizations face the dual challenge of maintaining business continuity while confronting risks to life and property throughout the disaster zone. Email me the new report from Stream Data Centers that explores the ins and outs of disaster planning, which is not optional for critical facilities, unless you’re willing to put your business operations — and data — at risk.
Lithium-ion batteries have become an “invisible” but significant part of our everyday lives. In the past 10 years, lithium-ion batteries have been introduced as an energy storage solution for Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) in data centers and mission-critical facilities. Download the new white paper, courtesy of LiiON, that shows readers how utilizing lithium-ion batteries can help them to achieve key efficiency and resiliency goals for today’s data center design engineers and operations engineers.
