How to manage power interruptions in data centres in a sustainable manner

January 14, 2021

A data centre’s main function should be to provide constant uptime for the mission-critical applications it houses. However, unplanned outages can happen, and data center operators must be proactive in finding ways to prevent them.

· Understanding the causes of data center outages and finding ways to address them; the need to ensure leading efficiency without compromising on system resilience or performance.

· Understanding your level of required uptime will help us provide a level of redundancy

· Selecting the best UPS system for your application and deploying the correct topology

· The role of a robust power protection strategy in successful data centre operations.

· Understanding the significant technological and legislative developments that are an ever-present consideration.

· Meeting the demands as an ISO27001 and ISO9001 certified data centre, and your service level agreement (SLA)

· Technologies for managing power outages from diesel generator sets and data centre UPS power supplies through to a whole range of power supply services including remote monitoring

The future energy systems are intended to help meet the social challenges of climate change, increased energy requirements and the energy demands of a growing world population. It is therefore important to expand renewable energies and Power-to-X technologies, make alternative fuels available, prepare internal combustion engines for alternative fuels and develop alternative energy systems. With this in mind, it is only logical for Rolls-Royce Power Systems to expand its portfolio to include fuel cells and to extend its development activities step by step to various areas of application. The potential of fuel cell technology is convincing, as is hydrogen as a storage medium within an overall energy system. Strong arguments for using and promoting this technology are high reliability, scalability and the ability to use renewable energy sources. Fuel cells could play a key role in zero-carbon data centers.
2020 has seen the realization of digital transformation sooner than many expected, resulting in customers’ expanding IT requirements and a significant uptick in utilization. As the demand for data grows steadily and unpredictable usage and growth models continue to be table stakes, the focus on adaptive, sustainable infrastructure has never been greater. Today’s sophisticated data center end-users are looking for solutions that are not only good for the environment, but also good for business and rapid scale. This requires not only sophisticated and sustainable infrastructure, but also calls for advanced internal tools, technologies and processes that provide the data driving critical business decisions and day-to-day data center operations.
