Power Redundancy

Redundancy and Diversity Create Reliability

Over 15 Years Of Continuous Critical Systems Uptime, And Counting.

All generators and UPS systems designed at an N+1 configuration or better

Generators and UPS systems are not on a common bus and do not use paralleling gear

Environmentally controlled and secure areas that house the current eight 2500 kVA Transformers, ATS, and UPS equipment at an N+1 configuration

Dual 17 MVA utility feeds from diverse utility provider substations

Dedicated 2.0 and 2.5 MVA Caterpillar generators for each of our in-house unit substations

Electrical and mechanical systems are delivered via dual path 2N active-active distribution

Our generators and UPS systems are designed at N+1 configuration with 2N distribution paths

FORTRUST’S Power is:

FORTRUST does not rely on a utility source for redundancy, but rather uses multiple feeds for capacity. We can operate autonomously from the utility grid.

Our electrical and HVAC systems are concurrently maintainable, meaning that maintenance can be performed without maintenance windows or potential impact to customers. This redundancy ensures that maintenance activities do not affect redundant circuits to computer racks or cabinets.

FORTRUST’s Denver data center receives power from two utility grids via two feeds supplied by the North and Mapleton sub-stations from Xcel Energy at 13,200 volts. FORTRUST does not rely on the utility source(s) for any redundancy, but rather uses the multiple feeds for capacity. FORTRUST utilizes the utility provider only as an economical alternative to producing the primary source of reliable power from our own generators.

What is an Uninterruptible Power Supply and How Does it Work

WHAT IS AN UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SUPPLY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

A UPS, or uninterruptible power supply, is a key component of any data center. But what exactly is this system and how precisely does it work within a data center’s infrastructure?
