Customer challenges

For banks to ensure efficient and reliable operations, their datacenters serve a mission-critical function. That's why they rely on advanced Power Control & Monitoring Systems for their facility's electrical network.

 

In case of power loss, basic redundancy enables a quick recovery of operation, but the loss of data can severely impact the customer's ability to track down failure root cause and assess the full impact of the power loss.

 

Since banks process high-volume transactions requiring a high-granularity data collection rate, the customer needed a continuous availability solution that prevents system downtime and data loss from happening.  

 

 

The Solution

To keep the power monitoring systems of the customer up and running at all times, the customer decided to combine EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert & Stratus everRun Enterprise

 

The customer installed:

  • EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert
  • Stratus everRun Enterprise
  • 2 Intel® x86 servers running Microsoft® Windows® or Red Hat® Linux® and Microsoft SQL Server
  • Over 500 metering devices for critical equipment such as Switchboards, Generators, IT Loads, and more

 

Servers are synchronized via a virtualization platform that pairs protected virtual machines together to create a single operating environment with full redundancy of all underlying hardware and data. If one physical machine fails, the power monitoring software will continue to run on the other physical machine without any interruptions or data loss.
