Backup Power When You Need It

Data Center Generator Services

As an industry leader with over 30 years of experience in EPSS service and maintenance, we have learned the need for reliability and redundancy in the data center industry. That is why we have provided a custom walk-through and inspection to help our data center customers make sure their system is redundant, reliable and ready when called upon that is a type service you can expect with a partner like GenServe to be there along the way and to answer the call any time or day.

Data centers are the backbone of an organization, housing their critical data and applications. Data center components require significant infrastructure to support the center’s hardware and software. These include power subsystems, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), ventilation, cooling systems, fire suppression, backup generators, and connections to external networks.

Supplying uninterrupted power to data centers 24/7 is critical for operations. Backup generators are used to insure reliability when power loss occurs and when unprepared, it can be costly and more importantly put lives at risk.

Redundancy and Generators

As modern industries rely more on digital technology and automation, data centers play an even bigger role today. There are many considerations to keep in mind before choosing the right generator and configuration for your data center. First, identify your data center tier based on the most common data center redundancy levels:

N+1 redundancy: This configuration indicates an available extra unit can support a component that momentarily needs to be serviced or replaced. N+2, by extension, is less common but provides an additional spare unit.

2N redundancy: 2N design keeps an entirely separate system capable of handling all of the data center’s power needs. These will often be two mirrored, identical systems but may also comprise different equipment makes and models. This configuration results in a 100% required capacity and 100% stranded capacity.

3N/2 redundancy: The three-makes-two approach offers more reliability than 2N and only strands about 50% capacity, so its operating costs are closer to N+1. To use this configuration effectively, the system must carefully manage the load from the power supplies in use.

2(N+1) redundancy: As the highest level obtainable, this configuration uses a completely separate system at the ready to switch in for backup power failure, plus provides additional components should any part in either of the two parallel systems fail.

Why Preventative Maintenance is necessary?

You’ve invested money into your facility and expect it to be running 24/7 without power interruptions, but inevitably things happen and equipment fails, natural disasters can hit when you least expect it, that is why reliable service and regular scheduled maintenance plans are essential to keeping your system up and running when you need it most.

When power loss occurs, you need to make sure that there is a seamless transition from utility power to generator power without any lag or downtime. Maintaining your generator is essential for keeping your data center protected.
