•The North American market has historically been more receptive to large traditional UPSs.
•While using traditional UPSs, data centers are required to assess future expansion plans and account for that during the initial investment.
•The disadvantage of employing this method was the heavy upfront investment. As capital expenditure (CapEx) budgets dwindled and the economy tightened, CapEx spending became limited.
•This forced UPS manufacturers to look for avenues where phased spending could help customers ease upfront costs.
The modular UPS technology provides the perfect platform for users to build a growing business.
•Decisions for expansion of the data center or the business entity can be accomplished using the scalable platform provided by modular UPS technology.
•The technological incentives for such an investment are manifold—from N+1 redundancy to hot swappable modules and higher efficiency.
•The other benefits of using this technology become evident when cost savings span over the period, beginning from initial investment to lifetime costs incurred in maintenance and other services.
•In addition, technological advancements increase market attractiveness, driving multiple architectures and designs that foster an increase in efficiency.
