CoreSite Realty Corporation has chosen Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. to provide Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) units for their 101,000 square-foot data center in Santa Clara, CA.
CoreSite cited Mitsubishi Electric’s 9900B UPS series’ overall energy- and cost-efficiencies and flexibility as reasons for its selection. The data center was completed on July 21, 2011 and is the sixth CoreSite data center and colocation facility to feature Mitsubishi Electric UPS products.
CoreSite’s newest data center is the second of four planned data centers at the company’s Santa Clara campus. The first on-campus data center has posted an annualized Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.4 since it opened in early 2010, and Mitsubishi Electric UPS products have contributed to its LEED Gold certification and Silicon Valley Power’s Energy Innovator Award. The 9900B units’ 97 percent efficiency rating is expected to contribute to a projected PUE of 1.27 at the new data center.
“CoreSite considers the energy efficiency of its data centers to be of the utmost importance,” said Billie Haggard, senior vice president of data centers at CoreSite, a national provider of powerful, network-rich data centers. “Our Santa Clara data center campus will be one of the nation’s most energy efficient and Mitsubishi Electric’s 9900B UPS units are an important component in achieving our energy efficiency goals.
“Mitsubishi Electric Power Products worked closely with CoreSite to provide custom UPS solutions that deliver optimal reliability, efficiency, and capacity management to our data centers.” “Mitsubishi Electric’s 9900B UPS offers the most efficient, on-line double conversion in the industry at all load levels, with up to 97 percent efficiency at unity power factor,” said Dean Datre, general manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products UPS division. “We are happy to help CoreSite realize maximum return on its investment, and look forward to being its UPS provider of choice.”
CoreSite had many UPS options from which to choose and after extensive research the Mitsubishi Electric 9900 Series proved to be the best fit for the project. In addition to its energy efficiency, design and price, Mitsubishi Electric’s reputation for responsive, personal and easily accessible service factored into CoreSite’s decision.
