Rack UPS

Building an on-premise data center requires that you have enough battery power available to sustain a brief outage. If your business needs maximum up-time, consider the advantages you'll get from a rack UPS.

Rack UPS

Building an on-premise data center requires that you have enough battery power available to sustain a brief outage. If your business needs maximum up-time, consider the advantages you'll get from a rack UPS. 

Rack mounted uninterruptible power supplies provide value to your company by allowing you to plugin all of your critical infrastructure into a power source that can withstand brief outages. These types of UPSs are handy because they typically provide the data center administrator with a heads up display showing how much battery life is left on each of the batteries. Administrators will also gain insights into how long their workloads can run off of the remaining battery power.  

These key insights can help keep your servers, switches and storage appliance online during a severe weather event that causes a brief power outage. Those who invest in a Rack UPS typically gain an immediate advantage because they do not have to run dedicated power circuits into each of their cabinets and build out expensive redundant power sources in their cabinets.   

In fact, many rack mounted UPS units allow you to configure them to send email alerts and provide SNMP alerts directly to your IT staff. Sometimes, power outages can be localized. You might have a power issue in your data center that does not exist anywhere else on your campus and that could bring down your entire network.

If you do not have a battery backup that can send out alerts when power events happen, you could be risking significant downtime. These types of UPSs have come a long way over the years. The first rack mounted UPSs simply gave administrators battery backup capabilities. Today's battery backups provide administrators with hot swappable batteries and deep insights concerning the voltage of the power coming from your outlets. You can even configure smart UPSs' to execute scripts that spin down your servers if a certain threshold is hit concerning battery life.  

Today's battery backup systems give administrators all the things they need to maximize their up-time and mitigate against any surprises. Be sure to map out which devices will be plugging into your rack mounted UPS and think about your plans for the future. For example, it might be wise to invest money on a more robust unit today to prevent your organization from having to purchase another unit in the future when you simply need a few more power sockets. In some data centers, space comes as a premium, therefore you'll want to be forward thinking in terms of getting the most out of your backup UPS investment.
