The right UPS can dramatically cut data centre costs

Supplied by Eaton Industries on Wednesday, 27 May, 2015

When selecting an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), data centre managers have historically been forced to choose between the energy efficiency provided by standby and line-interactive systems and the superior protection afforded by double-conversion systems.

But new advances in UPS technology have allowed for the development of high-efficiency, double-conversion UPSs with multimode operation, combining the best of both single- and double-conversion technologies.

The right choice of UPS equipment can help reduce energy consumption by nearly 50%, saving even a small data centre tens of thousands of dollars in operating costs per year.
