UPSs must be managed properly over their lifecycle in order to do the job for which they were intended – to keep critical systems up and running. When a company has UPSs distributed across dozens, hundreds or even more edge computing sites, managing the fleet often becomes challenging. This is primarily because the sites are likely to be geographically dispersed, there is a lack of trained staff on each site, and the UPSs vary in age across sites.
In this paper we discuss:
-Key considerations when deciding between managing the fleet of UPSs yourself vs. outsourcing .
-A tool to quantify the costs associated with each alternative.
-Four scenarios and demonstrate how key drivers influence which approach makes financial sense.
