The combination of Eaton UPSs, rack PDUs and enclosures provided the optimal solution for the new data center—both from a protection and aesthetic standpoint
“Eaton has a great industry reputation for reliability and standing by their products. For us, choosing to purchase Eaton products was a no-brainer.”
When Aqueduct unveiled its new data center in September 2018, at the helm were Eaton UPSs, rack enclosures and rack PDUs. Two Eaton 9PX UPSs deliver premium, double-conversion backup power and scalable battery runtimes. In addition to the data center, Aqueduct installed two 9PX units within its Interoperability Lab, a dedicated chamber where customer equipment is staged and tested before being deployed into client environments.
Complementing the UPSs are four Eaton RS Enclosures, which are available in network, server and colocation models to meet a variety of application demands. The versatile enclosure offers customizable and flexible mounting options to high-flow doors for maximum airflow to a wide array of cable management options. In addition, physical security is enhanced through a highly secure combination lock, which is particularly beneficial for data centers.
“If our data center goes down, our business simply can’t function. Downtime is like throwing a wrench into an engine—everything grinds to a halt. We depend on the Eaton UPSs to protect our assets."
As a reseller partner, Aqueduct is able to supply clients with the highest quality solutions for their own facilities. Eaton offers partners a wide array of advantages, such as a complete solution portfolio that includes power components for converged solutions, the ability to perform data center assessments, and the fact that the line is not over-distributed. One such innovation is Eaton’s Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) software, which provides the tools needed to monitor and manage power devices in both physical and virtual environments.
In addition to the depth and quality of the Eaton product line, Aqueduct also appreciates the value. Aqueduct reaps additional merit from the ongoing support and business development options available to Eaton partners, such as technical support, deal registration and rebates.
“Our customers are looking for products that are current, with pricing that is fair and consistent. Eaton offers both: a great product line with very attractive pricing strategies.”
