Active Power Supports Datum in Delivering Environmentally Intelligent, 
Resilient Data Centre 
EVESHAM, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/13 --  With the goal of
putting in place resilient electrical infrastructure and achieving a
low power usage effectiveness (PUE), Datum, a business class data
centre provider, has deployed Active Power's (NASDAQ: ACPW)
CleanSource(R) 1000 kVA uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system at
its new colocation facility in QinetiQ Cody Technology Park in
Farnborough, United Kingdom.  
The flagship facility, designed and built by specialist firm
Keysource, opened earlier this year and includes as its customers
managed service providers, systems integrators, and other technology
firms. All critical backup power equipment including UPS was deployed
in a separate energy centre apart from the main data centre.
CleanSource UPS was integrated into a 2N design with two separate
power paths supporting the facility's IT loads, ensuring complete
resilience and full concurrent maintainability in a modular scalable
solution.  
"Our focus was to design and build a colocation facility that would
support the exacting standards and requirements of our customers in
terms of IT capacity, power, cooling, and security not only for
today, but for the future," said Dominic Phillips, managing director,
at Datum. "Active Power's UPS was a key component in helping us
achieve our environmentally intelligent design as the product
delivers industry leading energy and space efficiencies. This
combined with Keysource Ecofris cooling solution ensures we attain an
annualised PUE of just 1.25." 
"Our UPS platform offers customers unmatched power density,
reliability, and total cost of ownership," said Mark Lee, general
manager, UK, at Active Power. "Keysource's approach to High
Performance Modular Data Centre Infrastructure (MDCI) and Datum's
desire for low operational PUE fully aligns with the tangible
operational advantages of our CleanSource UPS, enabling Datum to set
new standards in data centre performance."
