Data Center Managers are facing tough challenges as data centers grow larger and more complex. More than 75% of all companies have experienced a business disruption in the past five years, including 20% who say the disruption had a serious impact on the business, according to a recent survey of data center managers.
Within the next five years, one out of every four data centers will experience a serious power disruption.
Over the next five years, power failures and limits on power availability will halt operations at more than 90% of companies.
95% of the time the ‘back-up generators’ fail – is due to a failure within the diesel system. These failures are caused by inadequacies in; original design, installation, upgrades and remodels, training, fuel quality and system operation.
It is imperative that Mission Critical Facility Managers Understand:
Design consulting engineers rarely design diesel fuel systems, and often rely on unqualified, biased vendors to help with their designs.
Facility personnel do not understand the risks.
More than half of respondents anticipate needing to physically expand their data center in the next 10 years, with 5% planning to outsource and 13% planning a combination of expansion and outsourcing. Nearly a third expect to have to relocate their data centers, while 45% believe they will need to make major improvements to existing data centers.
Any expansion, remodel or purchase of a new facility should trigger an automatic response to have our expert staff provide a site inspection, or expansion design. Take the questions and surprises out of your diesel system.
