White Paper 52: Four Steps to Determine When a Standby Generator is Needed for Small Data Centers

Small data centers and network rooms vary dramatically in regard to the amount of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) runtime commonly deployed. This paper describes a rational framework for establishing backup time requirements. Tradeoffs between supplemental UPS batteries and standby generators are discussed, including a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis to help identify which solution makes the most economic sense. The analysis illustrates that the runtime at which generators become more cost effective than batteries varies dramatically with kW and ranges from approximately 20 minutes to over 10 hours.

White Paper 177: Determining the Power, Cooling, and space capacities when consolidating DCs

When planning the consolidation of multiple data centers into existing data center(s), it is often difficult to establish the various capacities and capabilities of each site’s physical infrastructure. This information is a key input to deciding which site(s) will become the “receiving” data center(s). This paper describes how to specify these requirements in standard terms and how to establish current conditions and future capabilities of each data center involved in a consolidation project.
