Are Your Legacy PDUs Putting You at Risk?

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Alyssa Scheyd  |  Comment (0)

Data center downtime can have a catastrophic effect on your daily business and direct impact to your organization. According to one study, they found an astounding 93% of all enterprises who suffer from data center downtime for more than 10 days file for bankruptcy within a year. This is in large part because of the costs associated with downtime being so high. The Ponemon Institute estimates the average cost of downtime is $5,600 per minute and $336,000 per hour.

Unfortunately, these are precisely the kinds of consequences you're looking at if you allow your data center to continue to run on legacy IT equipment, especially vital PDUs. PDUs are designed for uptime and efficiency - two things that help mitigate risks associated with the types of disasters that lead to failures. If your PDUs can’t immediately communicate power failures, alert for other operational malfunctions, or provide you with real-time, accurate power capacity information your entire data center (as well as its customers, and your reputation) could be in jeopardy.
