Uncompromising security of supply is required
With growing demand for data and critical services that must maintain operations 365 days a year, the power grid that supports servers, switches, and climate control capabilities must be resilient. Unplanned downtime in a data center is business-critical and must of course be avoided.
The data center's power cables run from the energy grids all the way into the server rooms, connecting substations with MV cables for generators and transformers that go down to LV power as it enters the building to power HVAC, fire extinguishing systems and servers.
Data center operators are increasingly looking for eco-friendly, CO2-neutral solutions for the building's power-intensive requirements, so solar, wind, and naturally cool air are typically part of the data center setup.
