Four Steps to Determine When a Standby Generator is Needed for Small Data Centers and Network Rooms

Cover

The amount of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) runtime deployment in a small data center and network room greatly effects backup time requirements. This paper identifies a framework for establishing backup time requirements. Issues covered include:

  • Tradeoffs between supplemental UPS batteries and standby generators
  • Consequences of backup time exhaustion such as unrecoverable data and termination of customer transactions
  • How to choose between generators and batteries depending on kW and runtimes

Read this white paper to learn more about backup time requirements and UPS runtime deployments.
