Increase uptime and improve business resilience overall.
The word ‘uptime’ has become synonymous with data centres, largely because of The Uptime Institute’s founding of the data centre Tier Classification System, which is “an objective basis for comparing the functionality, capacity, and expected availability (or performance) of a particular site IT infrastructure design topology against other sites, or for comparing a group of sites”. Computer equipment and other technology is often given an uptime rating, represented at a percentage value greater than 99% but less than 100%. “Five nines” or 99.999% is widely accepted as the current standard for ‘extremely reliable equipment’.
Protecting and securing power systems is central to enabling business uptime and achieving high levels of business resilience overall. Businesses these days are highly computerized and largely automated. Few could fall back on manual systems of operation and survive for very long. When you think about it, almost every bit of business equipment in daily use these days requires a source of energy and often a continuous one. Handheld devices and laptops may not require a continuous source of electricity but their internal battery can only power them for a limited period of time before they too need a top up. The bottom line is, without electricity, there can be no uptime.
