How Lithium-Ion Batteries Will Change Datacentre UPS Installations

Yuasa Lithium-Ion UPS Batteries For Datacentres

Lithium-ion batteries represent a technology that can disrupt the traditional data centre UPS market place and its reliance on valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries. Other energy storage technologies have tried to disrupt this market place, including super capacitors and DC flywheels. The benefits of lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries mean that this new battery technology is […]

The Future for Datacentre and Server Backup Power Solutions

Lithium-ion Datacentre Backup Power Solutions

The UPS system or uninterruptible power supply that we know today evolved from the oil industry and its need for backup power protection for computer operations in the 1960s. Today’s UPS systems provide a similar solution, but the world of backup power has changed dramatically since that period driven by a host of factors and […]

The Role of Hybrid Energy Storage UPS Systems In Datacentres
