Power matters: Uptime is crucial for data centers
Totally Integrated Power ensures an especially efficient and reliable power supply to safeguard critical data
Data centers have to protect valuable and critical data around the clock, 365 days a year. While data centers focus on storing and processing data, electrical power is not core business – but it is one of the main cost components and it must ensure availability as close to 100 percent as possible. That’s why power matters. Finding solutions to provide absolutely stable, reliable, and efficient power supply is a crucial factor for the economic operation of data centers. With Totally Integrated Power, Siemens comprises a complete portfolio that enables maximum availability and reliability, tailored towards the specific needs of data centers of any size, while providing outstanding energy efficiency.
Article: When it comes to power, quality matters
For data centers, it’s all about uptime and reliability. Users expect no less than 99.999 percent availability year-round. To achieve that goal, operators pay great attention to power and cooling redundancy. Great attention is also paid to cyber- and physical security, to prevent unauthorized access and ensure safety. A topic that’s often underestimated is power quality, which can directly impact uptime and reliability. Read our article to learn how to tackle this issue.
