Top 4 Challenges to Powering Small and Midsize IT Spaces
1. Predicting and managing infrastructure costs
IT demands continue to escalate, but controlling costs becomes more difficult. Investing in an efficient and flexible power solution to manage capital and operating costs is a must.
2. Delivering the availability needed for critical applications
You recognize that your data operations, first and foremost, must be available. Recent studies reveal availability is still the #2 concern for facilities under 5,000 square feet, and the #1 concern for critical spaces up to 10,000 square feet in size. As business demands escalate, your IT systems are enablers to growth. The challenge is to maintain or increase the IT resilience and availability required for the organization to succeed.
3. Improving power system visibility and intelligence
Lack of visibility into the power system’s performance can lead to costly mistakes and business productivity loss. Asking staff to manage power protection in addition to day-to-day responsibilities could hinder productivity and lead to unintended problems.
4. Achieving flexibility and rapid deployment
Chances are your company needs applications and systems to be up and running quickly so it can meet business demands. How do you best add, update, or modify power systems to support changing IT needs across the computing landscape?
