From an IT perspective, datacenters are built to be redundant, failsafe, and bullet-proof. When a datacenter goes down, their customers go down with them, making the impact of an outage costly and the damage severe.
When the causes of outages are analyzed, some might be surprised to learn that, despite the improvements we’ve made in engineering, protection systems, and energy reliability systems, power problems were cited as the number one cause of major outages within datacenters in 2020.
In this whitepaper, we will:
• Explore the power reliability problem impacting datacenters in greater detail to pinpoint some of the causes of power failure
• Explain why measurement platforms now need to detect these problems before they cause outages
• Compare legacy approaches to new disruptive technology in how they assist the datacenter in its journey to be outage-proof
