A steady market power flow, a steady market growth.
The decision regarding standby power for the data center is important as the UPS protects the critical environment from disturbances and failures.
IT often rushes into a UPS purchase decision with little or no requirements gathering, or an understanding of the UPS market.
By rushing into a UPS decision, IT may not right-size the UPS solution according to requirements, or can choose a vendor or product that is unable to support the critical environment. Enterprises must carefully determine which UPS vendor is the right fit for the data center infrastructure without overpaying for features and additional power capacity that is not required.
The market for UPS solutions is currently dominated by a few viable big players; however, each of these large vendors owns multiple brands, most of which stand alone as their own entity.
UPS solutions have many table stakes; when the table stakes are all you need, enterprises should differentiate on price and vendor stability.
Although a highly commoditized market, certain vendors offer advanced features that should still be evaluated to either ensure that the solution is the right fit for the current and future critical environment requirements, or to avoid paying for unneeded features.
