About Data Center UPS Market in US 2016-2020
In the event of a power outage, a UPS system is used to power the data center infrastructure until a generator takes control of the system. UPS systems are triggered automatically when the power supply is interrupted between the mains and the equipment. These systems prevent damage to the data center infrastructure and protect the facility during power sags and surges. They are generally used for short periods, ranging from a few seconds to minutes.
The basic components of a UPS system include a rectifier, an inverter, and a battery or flywheel that stores power. The rectifier converts the input AC power to DC to charge the batteries, and the inverter converts the DC power from the batteries to AC during outages. An ideal UPS system enables data centers to achieve better availability, efficiency, and scalability in operations. UPS systems are critical in terms of data center operations.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the data center UPS market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 4.01% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the data center UPS market in the US for 2015-2020.
The market is divided into the following segments based on type:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Data Center UPS Market in US 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Data Center UPS Market in US: ABB, Eaton, Emerson Network Power, GE Industrial Solutions, Schneider Electric, and Tripp Lite.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Active Power, Controlled Power Company, Gamatronic, IntelliPower, Power Innovations International, and Toshiba.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “DCIM facilitates efficient management of power systems in data centers, including UPS, through remote software and sensors associated with the systems. Vendors are focused on providing DCIM software to data center operators to remotely monitor and manage the power usage effectiveness in data centers. DCIM analyzes power quality, power flow paths, capacity management, power supply to racks, and IT equipment power consumption. The development of cloud-based DCIM in data centers will increase the adoption rate of DCIM across data centers worldwide.”
According to the report, data center equipment consumes high volumes of power, which increases data center OPEX. Modern data center operators are concerned about the growing OPEX. There is a need for the installation of efficient UPS systems to supply adequate power during outages and calibrate power consumption during low IT load conditions. Small UPS systems are available and they can be fixed near the racks in a data center to achieve higher energy availability. These rack-level UPS systems will help operators reduce the OPEX of data center facilities.
Further, the report states that batteries are low-tech components that support data center infrastructure during unplanned outages. Many data centers in the US face a major problem with regard to battery failure in UPS systems. Most data centers suffer power outages that last for a few seconds; battery failure in the UPS system can damage the data center equipment.
