So you need a new UPS system and you've already identified the Voltage and kW load requirements for your environment. How do you then decide which UPS to purchase and from which manufacturer?
Regardless of the size of UPS you are looking for, there are several factors below that can help you differentiate one UPS from another. Not all UPS systems are created equal even though their power ratings may be similar.
Let's start with number 1...
A Mirapath Success Story: Expend less energy and stay cool with containment.
A Fortune 1000 company headquartered in San Jose, CA was looking to reduce energy consumption in their 2,500+ sq. ft. data center while keeping their cooling requirements intact. Having already implemented blanking panels in their hot and cold aisle layout, the next logical step was a containment solution. With the lack of a containment solution in place, the hot air and cold air were allowed to mix, causing a decrease in air conditioning efficiency.
