Customized Data Center Power Systems Simplify Future Expansion
Today’s data centers need to be agile to meet changing and growing capacity demands expected to be driven by a massive increase in data storage and traffic from wireless 5G mobile networks and IoT devices. Therefore, the facility power infrastructure must be flexible when it comes to adapting to capacity increases over the expected operational life of the facility.
Previously, this typically resulted in installing all major systems, such as generators and UPS units, in the power chain during the original build-out, which impacted initial capital cost and energy efficiency due to initial low loading the early years of the facility.
However, in today’s cost-conscious and environmentally-aware world, upfront or excessive oversizing is no longer considered best practice. As a result, many new data centers are turning to pre-designed customized power systems which allow them to cost effectively and seamlessly meet future expansion.
At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify and recognize the potential impact of wireless 5G networks and IoT devices on data centers.
- Describe how modular design and custom switchgear can meet present and future power loads.
- Discover the financial cost and energy-efficiency tradeoffs of staged modular capacity versus up-front 100 percent build-outs.
- Recognize how customized power systems can simplify future expansion.
