RagingWire Data Centers selected IntelliBatt to provide its monitoring system solution for RagingWire's new Virginia data center campus. The Ashburn, VA, facility is engineered with the most technologically advanced electrical and mechanical infrastructure and is operated using RagingWire's time-tested best-practices operations. The result is RagingWire offers an industry-unique 100 percent uptime service level agreement (SLA) covering 7/24 operations including maintenance windows.
IntelliBatt's Monitoring System monitors the performance of each individual battery, including voltage, temperature, and impedance, plus UPS AC Ripple, among other key metrics, several times a day. All of this data is continuously monitored and analyzed by a team of experts in the IntelliBatt Network Operations Center (NOC). By predicting and preempting failure, IntelliBatt monitored sites have a perfect 20-yr track record of 100 percent battery uptime. RagingWire's critical facilities technicians also have 7/24 access to the battery and UPS state-of-health through a secure web portal—on a computer, smartphone, or tablet—as well as via phone or email support.
"We understand the importance of visibility into individual battery health. The world's most technologically advanced infrastructure is useless without an equally advanced, well-integrated, and robust monitoring solution," said Jason Weckworth, vice president of data center operations at RagingWire. "IntelliBatt has the most comprehensive and technically advanced battery monitoring systems on the market today. The ease of installation and maintenance, combined with their unique 7x24 NOC and ability to integrate with other monitoring hardware, makes them the ideal choice as a partner."
RagingWire's new Virginia facility is 150,000 sq ft and features 2N+2 redundancy in its critical facilities infrastructure all the way to the customer's rack. The campus includes RagingWire's patented power management system and the most technologically advanced and energy efficient infrastructure available in the data center industry. This combination of infrastructure, innovation, and best-practices allows RagingWire to deliver a unique 100% service level agreement (SLA). While other data center colocation providers typically exclude maintenance windows from their service level commitments, RagingWire offers a 100% SLA—even during maintenance windows.
"RagingWire has done an amazing job of delivering 100% availability and highly scalable power from their data centers in Northern California and Northern Virginia," said Steve Cotton, CEO and founder of IntelliBatt. "We've partnered with them to make sure that continuous monitoring and asset management, combined with predictive services, continues to support this goal when it comes to UPS and battery health. Enterprise customers want the security and peace of mind that any problems are identified before they happen—this is what we both do well."
