Brownouts Looming: What’s Your Data Center Plan?

Posted on July 18, 2018 by Jessica Ciesla  |  Comment (0)

As temperatures continue to rise in the summer months and energy clusters form, data center managers find themselves preparing for the upcoming "outage season." In fact, from June to August more data centers experience outages than during any other time of the year. These outages are due, in part, to the rapidly rising increase in power demands that can no longer be met by an archaic power infrastructure. In addition to their fight to avoid outages, data centers are left fighting external temperatures that can wreak havoc on ill-prepared facilities. Fortunately, there is a bit of good news; with the right tools savvy data center managers can beat the summer heat and avoid the brownouts that are lurking behind every heatwave.
