Importance of Predictive Battery Maintenance
Unplanned data center outages present a difficult and costly challenge for organizations. While eliminating downtime altogether is a challenging undertaking, organizations can start with the most frequent cause of unplanned outages – uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery failure.
In most cases, the ability to keep critical systems running through power outages is dependent on the UPS. Batteries are one of the most “low-tech” components supporting today’s mission-critical data centers but they are the most vulnerable part of an UPS system. A single bad battery cell can cripple a data center’s entire backup system, particularly if adequate UPS redundancy has not been implemented.
Maximize Your Uptime with MMR’s Battery Monitoring Solutions
Data centers with battery monitoring systems provided by MMR and installed on-site result in a reduced rate of outages. The use of our battery monitoring systems by customers increase the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) by more than double when compared to preventive maintenance alone.
Our remote monitoring not only lift the burden of monitoring from internal personnel, but in many cases, it also integrates onsite and remote preventative maintenance activities in order to maximize battery availability.
