A Power Redundancy Solution that Saves Money and Rack Space in Crowded Web Hosting Facilities

power redundancy in web hosting facilities

A viable power redundancy solution is an essential element in any large scale web hosting application. Without effective power redundancy, even minor power disruptions can disrupt access to client web sites, resulting in a flood of calls to the hosting facility support group from unhappy customers, anxious to restore their web site before the interruption in service results in lost profits and sales opportunities.

One of the primary factors that often discourage web hosting facilities from implementing a power redundancy solution is the tremendous expense and inconvenience associated with replacing existing, single power inlet servers, routers and switches with new dual power inlet devices. WTI’s PTS-14CM20-V Series Vertical Format Power Transfer Switches provide an economical, trouble-saving solution for power redundancy by allowing web hosting facilities to keep their existing single power inlet servers, skip the costs and delays of installing new dual inlet devices.

As an added benefit, WTI Vertical Format Power Transfer Switches also feature zero-unit mounting allowing the Power Transfer Switch to be installed on a rack post or in a rack pocket. This saves rack space and also eliminates the unpleasant task of juggling rack elements in order to make room for a power redundancy solution.

By eliminating power outages as a possible source of downtime, a power redundancy solution helps to keep both users and customers happy by making certain that the services that they pay for are always available when needed.
