Service helps develop strategies to protect against downtime

Emerson Network Power recently unveiled its Availability Assessment service, which helps business customers develop strategies to protect against downtime caused by power interruptions.

By generating certain metrics, including risk scores, downtime tolerances, and disruption costs, the service gives users a business impact analysis of their company’s current IT network power availability and then provides a gap analysis of risks and vulnerabilities with recommendations to help it protect against potential power failures.

Business continuity specialist Network Frontiers helped develop the assessment with input from IT, facilities, and business professionals worldwide. Availability experts from the company provide analysis and specific recommendations for integrating reliable power and cooling technologies.
