How to choose the right UPS service approach

Thumb original eaton service whitepaper

The old adage of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” may be feasible in some circumstances, but applying it to the maintenance of a UPS can have devastating consequences. All manufacturers’ UPSs are complex devices that are critical to business operations yet inherently dangerous and subject to failure. Risk can be avoided by implementing the right service approach.

In today’s high availability server environments, unplanned power outages or line quality irregularities can have a highly detrimental impact on IT applications. During a recent survey, 37% of IT professionals said they had suffered an unplanned outage in the past 12 months, with 32% saying those outages had lasted more than four hours.The cost of network down- time can average €6,170 per hour for small businesses (1-100 employees), €66,170 per hour for medium businesses (100- 1000 employees), and more than €1,000,000 for large businesses (more than 1000 employees).

Research indicates that regular preventative maintenance significantly reduces failure rates by allowing potential threats to be identified early. Based on Eaton service records, over 25% of preventive maintenance visits result in follow-up service to perform corrective actions or upgrades, affording customers the opportunity to repair potential problems before they become significant issues.

When mapping out your uptime strategy, there are four primary options for maintaining UPSs. This paper explores each and outlines the differences and specific advantages among these alternatives.

Datacentre Strategy and Evolution

Putting the power management discussion into a business context

“Our datacentres are no longer just places that house IT, they are strategic assets that help the business differentiate.”

With a technology industry seemingly obsessed with cloud computing, and some predicting the end of on-premise IT, it would be easy to get the impression that everyone is gradually winding down their datacentres and waiting for the day to arrive when they can all be switched off. This report provides an alternative view.
In the following pages we lay out ...

Rack Level High Density Liquid Cooling

Increased heat densities of IT Equipment (ITE) in high performance data centers continues to drive the need for more efficient and effective cooling technologies. Traditional air cooling is not a sustainable solution in these settings. While liquid cooling offers far greater efficiencies than air cooling, many liquid cooling options require large capital expenditures, are difficult to integrate with existing infrastructure, and present complications when upgrades or added capacity are needed.

This paper presents a rack level Hybrid Liquid C ...
