Active Power to Help Organisations Achieve Data Centre Design Goals With Suite of Modern Power Solutions
Company to Showcase New High Density UPS and Continuous Power Solutions at Data Centre World in London

EVESHAM, ENGLAND -- (MARKETWIRE) -- 02/26/13 -- Modular design is an attractive option for organisations who are considering a new build or having to expand their existing data centre facility. Adoption rates reflect this as the modular data centre market sits at nearly USD $1 billion and forecasted to reach USD $2.5 billion by 2015.1 Active Power's modular power solutions, in particular, provide lower capital costs, faster capacity delivery, higher reliability due to factory built and tested components, and greater efficiencies.

Active Power, manufacturer of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and modular infrastructure solutions, will be exhibiting at Data Centre World, 27-28 February, at the ExCeL in London to discuss with attendees scenarios where it may make sense to consider a modular power design and the performance and cost advantages of such an approach. As part of its exhibit, the company will showcase its new PowerHouse™ and CleanSource® High Density (CSHD) 625 kVA UPS at the conference at stand B40.

A modular continuous power infrastructure platform, PowerHouse offers a lower acquisition cost, faster time to deployment, best-in-class monitoring and analytics, and enhanced efficiencies, particularly when compared to a traditional data centre electrical room.

PowerHouse will also feature Active Power's next generation CSHD UPS which was introduced to market late last year. CSHD is the most power dense UPS on the market at the 625 kVA power rating, delivering critical power in half the space versus an equivalent legacy UPS.2 At 97 percent energy efficient, the system provides up to 30 percent savings in operating expenses due to improved efficiencies and lower maintenance.3
