There is a very common theme in the data center industry right now, and it's a huge opportunity for a simple design change that lowers CapEx, OpEx, and TCO - all at the same time. It simplifies installation, decreases footprint, improves cooling efficiency, and costs you less money. Sounds too good to be true, right?
Many data centers are standardizing their power deployments on a 2 x 1MW paralleled capacity system. This creates a few challenges that come with extra expense and stress.
What is wrong with the 2 x 1MW design?
So, what is the alternative? Mitsubishi Electric offers a 2MW static UPS, the 9900D.
The 9900D has a smaller footprint (two-thirds that of the competition) and higher power density than your 2 x 1 MW system, along with ten-year fans and 15-year capacitors for lower OpEx. Your installer doesn’t have that headache of paralleling, and they are only installing one UPS. Make sure they change their scope to give you a cost savings. Your commissioning process is faster, simplified, and less costly with one static unit.
Let’s discuss these ideas further and put together an accurate analysis of how a simple change on your power design can save you money.
