Eaton Powerware BladeUPS

The Powerware BladeUPS is a power quality solution, which expands power protection from 12 kW to 60 kW in a single industry standard 19-inch rack, and most significantly, providing this robust, compact solution without generating the additional heat associated with legacy end-of-row, modular UPS products. The BladeUPS is designed to be the most flexible UPS on the market. It can be deployed in a number of configurations from a distributed architecture (one in every rack), to end of row (up to six units in a rack), to a central system (not on the IT floor, but in the electrical closet). In addition, the exceptionally high efficiency rating is not a large energy cost burden when installed inline with the output of a large, central UPS or in highly critical computing areas where dual UPS redundancy (2N) is required.

Why use Powerware BladeUPS? 

High-density computing environments demand more power!
Today, the management of a data center or network operations center places you under the intense pressure to reduce costs while dealing with inescapable operational realities:

Expanding power demands - The blade servers that are satisfying business demands can also raise the demands for power consumption in the same footprint. Rack power requirements that were once at 60 watts per U may now have to be delivered at levels up to 600 watts per U with redundant power supplies.

Increasing power costs - Utility rates have a common recurrence.  They always go up. IDC research reports that energy costs represent a dominant influence on IT spending (IDC U.S. Market Watch Survey, Q2 2006, September 7, 2006). Most organizations are researching and developing plans for the selection of new data center sites based on the proximity of affordable power facilities. The need for more cost-effective power solutions is confirmed in a recent Gartner research report. Power will be 50% of data center operational costs (Gartner RAS Core Research, August 18, 2006).

Excessive heat - Blade servers generate a lot of heat-translating into a high demand for additional energy. A fully loaded rack of blade servers can use close to 30kW of power. This equals over 100,000 BTU/hr in heat generation that requires cooling-wasted heat that is not utilized in any way. Since cooling adds huge costs to data center operations, IT organizations are forced to increase their power efficiency to counteract the inefficient heat and cooling problems. 

If you manage, engineer, or plan the present and future of a data center or network operations center, you are already aware of these critical issues and their impact on operations. Your challenge is to make decisions that provide efficient power protection and distribution for growing loads, while managing the heat.
