Data center UPS systems provide secure and continuous power supply to data centers and protect them against power disruptions. These systems maintain data center infrastructure during power fluctuations and outrage by providing back up power, ensuring efficient operations. They also help suppress power surges and protect the equipment from damage. Since data centers are majorly used by organizations for processing & distribution of large data, the need to have reliable UPS to safeguard data becomes a vital factor.
The rising trend of cloud computing and virtualization has led to a subsequent rise in number of data centers globally, that are consuming over 2% of the total world’s electricity. In the U.S. market, data centers consume over 90 billion kWh electricity per year, which is equal to around 30 giant coal-powered plants. Stringent government standards are forcing companies to control improper surges in data center power consumption. For instance, the EU data center code of conduct mandates the companies operating in the market to limit energy consumption in data centers and reduce their impacts on environment, economy, and energy. Global data center UPS manufacturers are focusing on improving the UPS efficiency for maintaining ideal Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratio in data centers. For instance, Google LLC has reported to achieve PUE of 1.12 on average for all its data centers by installing modern and efficient UPS systems. Moreover, the emerging trend of modular UPS systems in the market is helping data center operators to improve efficiency, reduce operating costs, and provide better customer service through high availability.
Growing usage of social media, online, and mobile computing services has increased the demand for advanced IT infrastructure in the market. Global cloud service providers, such as IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon, are depending on hyperscale facilities and renting out large spaces for enhancing data center operations. These companies are managing a massive amount of customer data through colocation services, allowing them to reduce operational expenditures. Data center colocation offers cost-effective and energy-efficient data center solutions to end users, allowing organizations to address their storage issues. With such increasing demand, colocation providers are focusing on redesigning their data center UPS solutions and speeding up their IT processes to meet customer demand for faster content/data delivery, driving the market demand for effective data center UPS solutions.
Market leaders are witnessing high competition and are increasingly investing in partnerships and collaborations for expanding their product reach and attracting new customers. For instance, in November 2015, General Electric Electrical Systems, a data center UPS vendor acquired the power & grid businesses segment of Alstom SA for around USD 13.67 billion. The combination of the business has helped the company to expand its global capability, installed base, and focus on core industrial growth. Such investments by global players are anticipated to drive the data center UPS market revenue. However, factors, such as complexity of data center designs and need for high initial investments for deploying energy-efficient solutions, are expected to hinder the industry growth. In addition, lack of proper infrastructure and awareness regarding the benefits of energy-efficient UPS solutions in data centers in regions, such as Asia Pacific and South America, are some of the challenges faced by the industry.
