Equinix Datacenter Generators


With Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and emergency backup diesel generators, our electrical distribution system is designed to power all systems, even during a blackout. UPS systems prevent power spikes, surges and brownouts while redundant backup diesel generators provide additional fuel to keep the data center powered up in the event that public utility fails. The entire electrical system has built-in redundancy to guarantee continuous operation. The overall system is N+1 redundant, including each component within the parallel electrical systems.
