iX7 Advance Controller: What is “Power Sharing”?

Posted on June 15, 2017 by Nicolas Sagnes

To say that it is essential to do whatever you can to avoid data center downtime is something of an understatement. According to a joint study conducted by Emerson and The Ponemon Institute, the average cost of an unplanned data center outage in the United States rose to an all-time high last year of $7,900 per minute. That's an increase of 41% from the average $5,600 cost that the same study revealed in 2010.

This is a large part of the reason why features like Power Sharing on the new iX7 controller are so important. They leverage new features of the device to provide redundant power to each controller, helping to mitigate the risks of a power loss on either power feed before they happen.
