Data Centres

Power disruption for a data centre represents probably the single biggest business risk to their operations.

A loss of power could bring with it a devastating financial cost in lost business or even fines. It also presents a significant risk to your organisation’s reputation.

As a result, the use of emergency back-up power has become firmly established in the sector. However, as more information becomes digitised and energy costs continue to grow, unlocking cost savings becomes increasingly important.

The need to demonstrate a robust sustainability strategy also continues to grow, particularly as the biggest players in the sector continue to make major strides towards net zero. With carbon reduction ambitions growing across data centres’ key customer segments – the public sector, finance sector, and major corporates – demonstrating effective carbon reductions will become vital to your brand perception.

Power resilience for data centres

Recent years have seen a surge in demand for Cloud Services, as well as increased levels of data collection and management which has driven the growth of the data centre sector. Major power resilience failures have also demonstrated the huge impact that a power disruption can have on a date centre.

Traditionally, power resilience within the sector has relied on backup battery power, in the form of traditional Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, to protect specific critical equipment and systems to prevent the loss of vital data in the event of a power disruption. More broadly, power resilience is an integral part of a data centres business strategy, incorporating built in redundancies, operational safety steps, and other backups to protect against the risk of data loss or damage.

A future-proof solution to power resilience

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal strategy identifies Net Zero Data Centres as a cornerstone of clean energy infrastructure. As reliable storage and access for data becomes increasingly integral to our lives and organisations, offering this functionality while contributing as little as possible to the global emissions crisis should be a core objective for any data centre.

Resilience+ offers the ability to not only protect core systems and vital data, but to expand that protection site-wide. At the same time, it allows investments such as on-site generation to achieve a better return. With a growing number of data centres turning towards smart microgrid and on-site generation solutions to protect from the risk of a power disruption, a flexible battery energy storage solution that supports these technologies and the drive towards net zero should be a central part of your energy infrastructure.
