This paper provides a brief overview of li-ion batteries in comparison to VRLA batteries for static UPS applications, including optimal chemistries and technologies. A 10-year total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis is provided showing li-ion is 39% less than VRLA despite their capital cost premium. A sensitivity analysis reveals the TCO drivers.</p></div> <p><a href="http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/battery-technology-data-centers-vrla-vs-li-ion" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/battery-technology-data-centers-vrla-vs-li-ion#comments Whitepapers Thu, 30 Jun 2016 18:47:00 +0000 137431 at http://ecmweb.com Quantitative Analysis of a Prefabricated vs. Traditional Data Center http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/quantitative-analysis-prefabricated-vs-traditional-data-center <div class="field-byline"> Sponsored Content by Schneider Electric </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers,</p></div> <p><a href="http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/quantitative-analysis-prefabricated-vs-traditional-data-center" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/quantitative-analysis-prefabricated-vs-traditional-data-center#comments Whitepapers Thu, 30 Jun 2016 18:31:00 +0000 137421 at http://ecmweb.com Analysis of Data Center Architectures Supporting Open Compute Project (OCP) http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/analysis-data-center-architectures-supporting-open-compute-project-ocp <div class="field-byline"> Sponsored Content by Schneider Electric </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility.</p></div> <p><a href="http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/analysis-data-center-architectures-supporting-open-compute-project-ocp" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/analysis-data-center-architectures-supporting-open-compute-project-ocp#comments Whitepapers Mon, 27 Jun 2016 15:38:00 +0000 137271 at http://ecmweb.com Electrical Services Boom in Seniors Market http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/electrical-services-boom-seniors-market <div class="field-byline"> Sponsored Content by Mr. Electric </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Check out this whitepaper to find out how electrical contractors can be a part of this emerging and rewarding market share, how they can add credibility to their profession, and increase potential for overall profitability.</div> <p><a href="http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/electrical-services-boom-seniors-market" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/electrical-services-boom-seniors-market#comments Whitepapers Tue, 10 May 2016 15:29:00 +0000 135491 at http://ecmweb.com Adding Reliability and Availability to Your Manufacturing Process http://ecmweb.com/whitepapers/adding-reliability-and-availability-your-manufacturing-process <div class="field-byline"> Sponsored Content Supplied by Siemens </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Reliability and availability of medium-voltage equipment is critical in virtually all applications; any failure will generally disable a relatively large portion of the plant.
