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.
Formerly known as Emerson Network Power, Vertiv is one of the data center market’s largest vendors for power and cooling solutions. Their acquisition by Platinum Equity Group in 2016 has allowed them to respond to changes in how data centers are built, calling for greater power and cooling requirements while maintaining efficiency.

In our Executive Roundtable, four data center executives discuss the growing use of use of artificial intelligence in data center management.
In our 10th Executive Roundtable, four thought leaders reflect on the state of the data center industry, and where it is headed. Today we discuss the massive volumes of data being created, and the impact upon the data center and society.
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.
