Uninterruptable Power Sources (UPS) Key In Green IT Efforts

With green IT becoming an important goal for many IT vendors and users, uninterruptible power sources (UPS), which use built-in energy sources to supply power during grid power outages, need to fit into existing IT infrastructures to support vendors’ green initiatives. According to Pike Research, these green trends, along with growth in emerging economies, will lead to a dramatic uptick in the UPS sector in the near future: the global market for UPS is set to expand from $8.2 billion in 2011 to $9.4 billion in 2012, and to $13.2 billion in 2015. Next-gen UPS systems are expected to feature built-in energy sources such as compressed air or flywheels, alongside traditional batteries, to provide clean power over periods from just a few seconds to several hours.
