Verizon Terremark Deploys Active Power's PowerHouse(TM) Solution at Data Center
in Santa Clara, Calif.
Nearly Four Megawatts of Modular Power Infrastructure Deployed to
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- To support the expansion
of its world class data center in Santa Clara, Calif., Verizon
Terremark deployed Active Power's (NASDAQ: ACPW) PowerHouse solution,
a complete modular power system, that integrates all electrical
infrastructure components into a single unit. This includes
uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, switchgear,
monitoring/controls software, etc.
Challenged with limited real estate, Verizon Terremark needed a
compact auxiliary power system. Four PowerHouse systems were
installed on the facility's rooftop to provide complete power
protection to the data center's mission critical IT infrastructure.
The systems were installed in the third quarter of 2013.
Each of these systems include Active Power's CleanSource(R) UPS;
input and distribution switchboards; automatic transfer switch
controls; redundant air conditioning system; fire detection
equipment; and a monitoring and controls panel. All four systems are
capable of supporting nearly four megawatts of uninterruptible power
supply (UPS) protected load.
"As we update our infrastructure, we are continually looking for ways
to make our data centers more efficient," said Ben Stewart, senior
vice president, Facility Engineering, at Verizon Terremark.
"PowerHouse modular units are energy and space efficient, which give
us flexibility to manage power consumption to best serve the needs of
our clients and limit energy and equipment waste."
"The power density and flexibility of PowerHouse allows us to offer
one of the most compact modular power solutions in the industry that
enables the operator to reduce the size and cost of their land and
building," said Todd Kiehn, senior director, Product Management, at
Active Power. "The philosophy behind our PowerHouse product line is
to simplify the design and build process for our customers."
"This simplification comes in the form of taking factory built
components, integrating them into a purpose built enclosure, and
testing the entire system in advance of delivery as opposed to doing
all of this work in the field," continued Kiehn. "This saves the
customer time and money so they can better manage the infrastructure
supporting their data center power requirements."
