Reinventing Electrical Resiliency for Data Centers
The global economy is experiencing an explosion in the need for cloud services, reliable data access, and “always on” connectivity to support everything from remote work, online grocery delivery, and video streaming services to the Industrial Internet of Things. Resilient power and uninterrupted operations enable industry growth to address this demand. However, uncontrollable events including severe weather, cyber threats, and wildfires increasingly stress an already aging grid with the risk of long-term outages. Proactive business resiliency planning is critical.
Microgrids offer data center and colocation operators a resiliency solution that optimizes their investments in backup power and supports grid stability and increased penetration of renewable energy assets. Most importantly, microgrid systems support operational continuity and can island for extended periods during times when the grid is down for days to weeks when other fuel supply chains are disrupted.
The Enchanted Rock Solution
The Enchanted Rock Managed Power Resiliency solution helps data center and colocation facilities modernize how they approach electrical resiliency. We provide fully managed clean, natural gas-powered resiliency microgrids, support services, and flexible pricing options designed for fast, simple, and worry-free protection from extended grid outages. A partner you can trust, we have a proven track record of availability solutions backed by highly skilled personnel and advanced systems, resulting in low risk, predictable resiliency.
Decarbonizing Resilience with Natural Gas
Enchanted Rock’s natural gas microgrids offer cleaner local emissions than diesel by orders of magnitude with practically no run limitations – allowing data centers to support both resiliency and sustainability strategies. During crisis situations, natural gas is readily available when diesel refueling is not always possible due to terminal supply shortages or over the road logistics. Our systems can use natural gas and renewable gas to reduce or eliminate carbon footprint.
- Eliminate costly power outages with increased end to end availability
- Avoid financial and reputational risk due to missed SLAs
- Reduce CapEx and OpEx
- Support sustainability initiatives
