If your company has a need to establish localized IT resources, you may be thinking of investing in and deploying multiple IT footprints in remote locations, as part of a distributed computing or edge network. In the past five years, lithium-ion batteries have come into use as a stored energy source in traditional data centers. Download the new white paper in which Vertiv looks at how these types of batteries can also be used to support single-phase UPS systems in remote mission-critical environments and edge data centers.

Lithium-ion batteries are a common power source for millions of consumer devices. But they are now being adopted for use with Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) applications, as a means of ensuring uptime for mission-critical infrastructure in data centers. For companies wishing to deploy distributed computing and edge networks, lithium-ion batteries can be ideal for use with IT deployments in remote locations.

Also, lithium-ion batteries include a Battery Monitoring System (BMS) and other features that help to ensure safe battery operation. While the initial cost of lithium-ion batteries is still higher than lead acid batteries, this cost difference is shrinking.

Over the typical service life of a UPS, it is estimated that a lithium-ion battery system can provide a TCO savings of 40% or more.
