An informative White Paper considering the changes that have happened in the industry since the 1950s, and how the demand for computing power has changed so dramatically in recent years. For example, modern highly critical loads now use (n+1) redundant parallel UPS systems as standard.
The document highlights the ultimate aims when implementing a UPS system; eliminating power disturbances and downtime, especially for data centres that demand 24/7 availability. It explores the dependence upon computer-controlled real-time information systems and how the highest reliability UPS configurations have become an everyday requirement. It considers how the relationship between a power system’s uptime and downtime is governed as much by its mean time to repair (MTTR) as its mean time between failures (MTBF).
A reliable and objective guide on how to optimise availability, with recommendations for a parallel redundant UPS configuration with de-centralised static bypass switches. A must-have for IT managers under pressure to optimise availability and reduce downtime.
