From 2013 to 2021, customers faced average yearly power outages lasting about two hours. But as data centers can’t go without power, even for a few minutes, operators’ preferred option for gaining extended backup power is the diesel genset.
This whitepaper explores battery energy storage systems (BESS), an always-on energy source to contribute to day-to-day supply, improve operational resiliency, and deliver sustainability benefits.
Large data centers have to hit time and cost targets, and they have to work reliably. Given all that, it’s obvious that building data centers at scale is a whole different ball game.
In this supplement, we look at how things might be changed by working at hyperscale. Read on to find out how the construction of mega data centers is changing, as well as where we build them, how a complete virtual copy of a data center can help you build better, and more.
