UPS Efficiency: Like Buying New Tires?

UPS for a data center is a lot like tires on your vehicle: nobody really likes to spend money on either, but both are essential for any operation and cause significant disruption (and frustration) when either fail to perform as needed.

If you’re like most people, you probably dread going through the expense for new tires every few years, and often there is seemingly little to differentiate one tire from another.  But what if tires DID offer a significant improvement in performance, without an impact on overall reliability?  (For example, new airless tires are starting to commercialize and hit the market, and appear to offer superior performance and efficiencies.)

In the UPS world, we are seeing UPS manufacturers attempt to deliver the required reliability while also claiming to improve efficiency.  We will discuss this UPS Efficiency topic in a short series over the coming months, but we’d first like to hear your thoughts on this topic.  Please take a few moments to answer these poll questions, and check back next month! If you already know you have an initiative to improve your UPS efficiency, please contact us to discuss an assessment that will document your requirements and ensure you select and purchase the correct solution for your needs.
