Vertiv offers critical infrastructure technologies and rapidly-deployable customised solutions to meet specific business requirements and needs. Unplanned downtime affects every aspect of business. It is why Vertiv offers reliable and efficient products that work together to safeguard mission-critical networks, including data centres. A key part of such mission-critical infrastructure is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
In data centres, electricity must be reliably supplied to all electrical components around the clock. Any power failure or outage can result in data loss and interruption of operations. Multiple servers would cease processing data and shut down, potentially casing millions of dollars of business interruption for data centre users.
For Michael Marcinkowski, NSW Operations Manager, Vertiv, using electrical contractors as part of a data centre construction project who are reliable and calm under pressure is a vital part of a successful installation.
Marcinkowski says that QRS meet tight demands and deadlines with an insight and commitment to delivery that is unmatched in his experience. “The UPS is the last to go in – so any delays in the construction of the data centre are compounded right at this point. There is no room for error, the UPS needs to be installed in a clean room, and QRS are often operating under the highest pressure to ensure a data hall or data centre can go live. Yet despite that pressure, they still deliver outstanding workmanship, quality and meet deadlines.”
Not only is there a huge financial implication if a brand new data centre does not go live on the day planned, there is a reputation risk also: “It does not matter on the day the site is due to go live that the delay was really due to a problem at another point of construction earlier in the timeline. As Vertiv’s UPS is the last to go in, it is Vertiv’s name they will remember as connected with any delay. Working with expert installers like QRS helps ensure our brand reputation.”
Marcinkowski adds working with QRS offers Veritv robust support in project management, referring to their talent as the “lack of head noise.”
