Minimize Downtime in Cloud Hosting Facilities

Friday, August 15th, 2014

In cloud hosting facilities, an effective power redundancy solution provides helps to ensure that user access to data, services and tools cannot be interrupted by an unexpected power outage. Although power redundancy is a relatively simple proposition in applications where only dual power inlet devices are present, in the real world, cloud hosting facilities often include a smattering of single inlet devices such as cooling systems, older application servers and aging distribution switches that do not include built-in power redundancy capabilities.

How to Add Power Redundancy without Replacing Single Inlet Devices or Sacrificing Rack Space

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

A viable Power Redundancy Solution helps to provide data centers, web hosting facilities, test labs and cloud hosting applications with assurance that vital network element will continue to function in the event of a power outage. Obviously, this is a very important capability in any industry that hopes to provide customers with constant, reliable access to network based services and resources.

Power Transfer Switch – Add Power Fallback Capabilities to Single Power Inlet Devices

Friday, August 30th, 2013

While power redundancy is obviously an important factor in any mission critical application, many administrators choose to do without a power redundancy solution due to the costs associated with replacing existing single power inlet devices with new dual-inlet devices. In cases like this a Power Transfer Switch (also known as an Automatic Transfer Switch) can help budget conscious managers to easily implement an effective power fallback strategy without the need to replace existing single-inlet devices.

A Reliable Power Redundancy Solution for Single Inlet Security Devices

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

In this security conscious age that we live in, webcams, motion detectors and badge scanners have become increasingly common elements in most businesses and public facilities. It doesn’t matter if you’re checking ID cards, observing activity in a lobby or community space, or monitoring a building during off-hours for suspicious activity; most mission critical security applications rely on the sort of constant vigilance that can only be supplied by a monitoring device, ID scanner or electronic sensor.

The Power Transfer Switch – Avoid Waste While Adding Power Fallback Capabilities

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

In tight economic times, it makes sense to do one’s best to always get the most benefit out of things that you’ve already paid for. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about a tube of toothpaste or single power-inlet network equipment; a wise budget manager will always try to squeeze every last bit of usable resources out of anything that they paid good money for. But while squeezing every usable drop of toothpaste out of the tube might be relatively easy, it’s not nearly as easy to to get additional use out of single-power-inlet network equipment if you need to implement a power redundancy solution … or is it?

A Power Transfer Switch Saves Time and Money for Power Redundacy Applications

Monday, October 24th, 2011

In a modern business environment, most office workers and managers depend on the company network in order to get their jobs done. In fact, when the network is down, often there’s not a lot that we can actually accomplish without it. That’s why most network managers are continually pressed to work to minimize network downtime and ensure that vital network capabilities are always available when needed. There are many things that can be done to improve network up-time, but one of the first stems that many network engineers take, is to implement power redundancy strategy that relies on the power fallback capabilities provided by a power transfer switch.

The Power Transfer Switch – An Easy, Economical Way to Implement Power Fallback Capabilities

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Often, network administrators are left with two choices when adding power redundancy and power fallback capabilities to an existing network equipment application; the expensive way and the easy way. The expensive way requires replacing every single existing single-power-inlet network device in the rack with a new dual-power-inlet device, and the easy way only requires the installation of an inexpensive, easy-to-operate power transfer switch in order to provide power fallback and redundancy capabilities to existing single-power-inlet devices.

Adding Power Fallback and Redundancy without the Expense of New Dual Inlet Devices

Friday, August 26th, 2011

In most modern business operations, the network is the vital part of the corporate infrastructure; when the network is down, the pace of business often slows to a crawl, communication stops and many important resources are simply unavailable. With this in mind, one of the main goals of most network administrators is to ensure network reliability; this means that network administrators will generally do everything in their power to ensure that the network is up, running and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The Power Transfer Switch – Economical Power Fallback and Redundancy for Single Power Inlet Devices

Friday, August 5th, 2011

One of the most critical requirements for a modern corporate network is reliability; the network needs to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to support the needs of users and customers and to ensure constant communication within the corporation and with the outside world. One of the most important factors in ensuring network reliability, is an effective power redundancy solution, that allows network equipment to automatically switch over to a back-up power supply in the event that the main power supply fails.
