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.
Lithium-ion batteries, which have powered mobile devices for years, are gaining traction in the market for data center UPS systems.
In the last entry in the four-part Data Center Frontier Special Report Series that explores the future of lithium-ion batteries and their impact on energy storage, we discover why lithium iron phosphate acts as an ideal chemistry for UPS batteries.
Widely used in today’s consumer electronics, lithium-ion batteries are now being adopted as a backup energy source for Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) in data centers. Download the new Data Center Frontier special report, in partnership with Liion, that explores the energy storage possibilities of lithium-ion batteries.
Vertiv is expanding its line of UPS systems that can use lithium-ion batteries rather than traditional lead-acid batteries, offering more options for data center operators interested in new options for their power infrastructure.
In this Voices of the Industry column, Patrick Quirk, Vice President and General Manager of Management Systems at Vertiv, explores the connection between upskilled employees and the autonomous data center. By combining data, connectivity and machine learning, data centers can bridge the skills gap, prepare for changing environments and loads, and eventually implement predictive capabilities.
Will artificial intelligence and robotics manage the data centers of the future? At DCD Webscale, LitBit and Wave2Wave discussed new AI products to streamline data center management and address the industry’s staffing challenges.
As FORTRUST expands its Denver data center, it will use Diesel Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (DRUPS) from E1 Dynamics to provide emergency power during utility outages.
Active Power has introduced a flywheel UPS system that can supply emergency power for as long as a minute. It hopes the new flywheel, which spins faster than previous versions, will expand the market for flywheel-based UPS systems.
