Cloud computingvendors andcolocationdata centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are investigating replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall). This white paper describes the advantages of positioning UPSs in the white space as well as the essential qualities to look for in a white space-ready UPS.
