ByteGrid chooses Eaton power management technologies for world class redundancy, fault-tolerance, and operational efficiency.
ByteGrid Holdings LLC has announced that it has selected power management company Eaton to provide power management and monitoring solutions for its Cleveland Technology Center (CTC) in downtown Cleveland, the city’s largest multi-tenant data center.
As part of a major data center expansion in Cleveland, ByteGrid has installed two 1.5 mega-watt Eaton PowerXpert™ 9395 uninterruptible power systems (UPSs). Eaton’s PowerXpert 9395 UPS provides industry-leading efficiency and modular redundancy, allowing ByteGrid to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by leveraging groundbreaking energy saving technology while increasing power system reliability.
In addition to the UPSs, ByteGrid relies on Eaton service, medium-voltage load interrupter switchgear, switchboards, panelboards, meters and computer power distribution units (ePDUs) that deliver high quality power to critical IT systems. These Eaton products will help support reliable operations and highly accurate metering of power in Cleveland’s largest multi-tenant data center.
