Even with a "Six 9s" uptime target, power issues remain the leading cause of Data Center downtime. This is mainly due to inadequate monitoring, testing, controls and protocols. Downtime incidents can cost up to $9,000 per minute.
It is crucial for data centers to have a broad view of their power system to quickly isolate a fault or to perform a rapid root cause analysis and data recovery. Unfortunately, the cost per node often prevents them from thoroughly monitoring their networks.
The costs and hurdles associated with data loss should never be compromised by monitoring limitations. Data centers need a solution that will allow them to effectively manage the power of their facilities by being able to prevent, anticipate, detect, and recover from power issues quickly and at low cost.
