As cloud computing becomes more influential across all parts of our lives, Leo Craig talks to the Daily Telegraph about the importance of power protection.
Trends suggest the UK is set to become Europe’s biggest data centre market by 2020. With efficiency essential in a data-driven age, there’s an increasing reliance on cloud computing and storage.
Just as important is the need for reliable critical power protection in the shape of an uninterruptible power supply.
Leo Craig, Riello UPS General Manager, talks to Business Reporter, a specialist section distributed with the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, and City AM news publications, about the role of UPS in the cloud computing age.
As part of the interview, Leo speaks about moves the Government have made to promote energy efficiency in data centres. In addition, he covers the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) for large companies, along with the tax relief on offer as part of the Energy Technology List (ETL). Riello UPS’s super-efficient Multi Sentry range is eligible for the latter.
Covering subjects as broad as Riello UPS’s certified engineer programme, using Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries to generate and store energy, UPS maintenance, and the growth of Smart Grid-ready UPS, the focus of the article is definitely performance and energy efficiency.
It argues technologies such as UPS are vital to “keep the lights shining brightly on business in Britain”.
