A data center or server outage can spell disaster for modern businesses, with the cost of downtime increasing for every hour you’re off the grid. Mitsubishi achieves the highest reliability among UPS power backup suppliers. Our proprietary technology delivers continuous critical power in the most demanding environments at the highest levels of efficiency.
Mitsubishi Electric has been manufacturing precision-engineered, highly-reliable uninterruptible power supplies for businesses since 1964, and solving the challenges of critical facilities in the United States since 1985. Don’t let a data center outage leave your business in the dark.
In 2019, 51% of all outages lasted longer than 4 hours. In 2020, this percentage jumped to 82%1. The growing dependency by business/society on IT, the concentration of IT in fewer companies/large data centers, and the difficulty of quickly resolving complex system outages (sometimes spanning multiple sites) are all contributing to longer outage durations.
Uninterruptible power supplies for businesses can help reduce downtime by providing the backup power you need to limit or prevent outages.
The cost of downtime can be detrimental to a business, with a one-hour outage costing an average of $700,000 in 20192. However, the total cost of an unplanned server or data center outage can be closer to $500K-$1M when accounting for lost revenues, wages, inventory, labor, other direct/indirect costs, and opportunity costs. Some businesses by their nature, size, and utilization of IT will incur significantly higher costs during the time of a typical outage. For these, the cost of downtime can reach as high as $5 million per hour.
Some businesses, by their nature, size, and utilization of IT, will incur significantly higher costs during the time of a typical outage. Telecom and brokerages, for example, are estimated to lose $3M and nearly $10M, respectively from an outage of average duration. British Airways and Delta Airlines estimate that losses they incurred from outages due to critical power infrastructure failures were staggering at $130M and $150M, respectively.
As data centers are relied upon more heavily in corporate IT – and are expected to run half of all workloads in 2021 – reports of outages are becoming more frequent and preventing or reducing downtime is becoming more essential. In 2018, 49% of survey responders told the Uptime Institute they had experienced a data center outage or some interruption of service in the past year. That was up from 25% the year before3.
Reliable backup power for your business can reduce downtime and prevent an outage from turning into a disaster. But what happens when the uninterruptible power supply for your business fails? UPS failure is the number one cause of prolonged data center outages4, and can be driven by inferior technology, weak product quality, improper maintenance, battery failure and poor service. The risk of UPS failure and its implications for business downtime makes choosing the correct UPS for your power backup system essential.
Mitsubishi reliability and efficiency reduces UPS failures, cutting the cost of downtime caused by server or data center outages. Mitsubishi Electric is the only major brand of uninterruptible power supplies that designs and manufactures its own power electronics that achieve the “U” in “UPS.”
Our power backup technology, namely Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) and Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) provide a steady, uninterruptible power supply for your business to reduce downtime and its costs. Plus, our products are fully backed by our knowledgeable and responsive Service team.
R = Mitsubishi Electric’s measure of reliability
e = Number of reported customer load loss events due to a Mitsubishi Electric UPS failure
d = Assumed maximum duration of load loss events
u = Number of Mitsubishi Electric uninterruptible power supplies shipped
tn = Assumed total available operational hours of UPS n since shipment
Mitsubishi reliability is measured as the percentage of time our uninterruptible power supplies* have sustained their load carrying capacity.
