Benjamin Franklin Probably Never Dealt with Downtime

To ensure uptime, you need electrical infrastructure built from quality components. It’s equally important to include redundancy in the electrical design to ensure uptime in event of a system failure. Learn how Instor’s electrical design services can help you maintain uptime.

The Quality of Your Electrical Infrastructure is Directly Correlated with Uptime

When Benjamin Franklin harnessed the power of electricity with his makeshift lightning rod 250 years ago, he likely envisioned a world of possibilities before him. It’s hard to understate how much of a watershed moment that was in human history. Today, electricity remains the primary driver of nearly all progress – from the ability to see in otherwise dark surroundings to the privilege of flying comfortably across the globe in mere hours. This holds equally true in our industry, where power and electrical infrastructure serve as the backbone of data centers around the world.

Data center managers worry about a lot, but chief among these worries is unplanned downtime, which can quickly run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue for even a few minutes without power. When a single electrical system component goes down, your uptime rate is toast and, along with it, your potential for future business. To prevent this, it’s important to provide for redundancy within your data center’s electrical design. That way, if a system failure (heaven forbid) ever finds you, you’ll be prepared.
