Marketing research firm Frost & Sullivan reports that the maturing data centers market is experiencing continued growth due to its widespread popularity among corporate clients. Also key to the market’s ongoing expansion has been the need for more storage and facility upgrades to suit evolving business needs. This in turn has fuelled the demand for UPS systems, according to Frost & Sullivan, with UPS manufacturers working closely with data centers to provide systems with high redundancy, better monitoring and improved reliability.

Frost & Sullivan (www.power.frost.com) finds that the European market for UPSs in data centers earned revenues of €114.6 million in 2005 and estimates this will reach €263.4 million in 2012.

“The power disturbances across many European countries in 2004 have alerted data center managers to the term ‘business continuity’ and, combined with the initiatives of UPS suppliers in creating awareness, have significantly boosted demand for UPS systems,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Mahesh Venkateswaran.

Notwithstanding such optimistic projections, one of the biggest challenges for UPS suppliers will be to effectively distribute power in a given data center facility.

“Since 85% of existing data centers have centralized power architecture, addressing the demands of new servers will require integration of centralized distributed systems along with proper cable management, monitoring and cooling,” concludes Mr. Venkateswaran.
