Green-IT in the data centre - What potential does the UPS system offer?
IT trends such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, metaverses and streaming are increasingly driving up the power consumption of data centres.
When it comes to making data centres more energy-efficient, operators have tended to first invest in servers with processors that are as economical as possible, and in efficient air conditioning.
For some time now, there has been an increased focus on potential savings using smart power supplies. Equipped with intelligent control software, these systems continuously adapt their own consumption to the current workload of the data centre.
They are optimised to automatically set hardware that is not currently required to energy-saving mode without jeopardising the secure operation of the data centre. They assume energy management functions, offer options for the integration of energy storage systems or the procurement of sustainably generated energy from photovoltaic and wind power plants.
With the ENERTRONIC modular SE UPS system, BENNING has already established a UPS system on the market for several years that meets the requirements for resource-saving and fail-safe operation.
In the course of an upgrade, these UPS systems can be equipped with energy storage functions. The result is a hybrid UPS energy storage system (UPS ENERTRONIC modular Storage).
Find out in this POWER news article how a data center next to Leipzig combines high availability, security and resource-efficient operation.
