Power protection strategies. They are critical to the success of today’s critical facilities and to the daily routines of data centers, IT and facility managers. But a big question remains. Does a distributed or centralized backup strategy make more sense for your facility? Vertiv explores in a new report the ins and outs of distributed and centralized backup strategies, to help adapt to the growing demands of the market in terms of availability, capacity and performance requirements.
When designing a power protection scheme for data centers, IT and facility managers must ask themselves whether a distributed or centralized backup strategy makes more sense. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Download the new white paper from Vertiv that explores the principle of centralized versus distributed bypass and applies it equally to standalone monolithic and integrated-modular UPS architectures.
The most common UPS topology currently used in the industry is double conversion; nevertheless, most UPS suppliers have introduced Eco Modes of operation to further increase the levels of efficiency of the UPS. Download the new paper from Vertiv, which analyzes potential drawbacks of Eco Mode types of operation, further highlights elements to consider when using these modes of operation, and gives a review of field results for technologies like the Liebert Trinergy Cube UPS and more.
With an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), you have made a significant investment in power protection for your operations, so it doesn’t make sense to risk that investment on batteries that may not work when needed most. This white paper from Vertiv highlights the critical role of the battery within single-phase UPS systems and discusses the options for ensuring power and business continuity, especially as IT networks increase in size and complexity and/or become more dispersed.
In the third entry in a four-part Data Center Frontier Special Report Series that covers the future of lithium-ion batteries and their impact on energy storage, we explore the variety of ways lithium-ion batteries are being used in data centers.
Our second entry in a four-part Data Center Frontier Special Report Series that explores the future of lithium-ion batteries and their impact on energy storage, moves on to explore how lithium-ion batteries can lead to TCO savings for energy storage.
This is the first entry in a four-part Data Center Frontier Special Report Series, in partnership with Liion, that explores the future of lithium-ion batteries and their impact on energy storage. This entry offers a comparison of the capabilities and characteristics of lead acid versus lithium-ion 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.
