RP Power provide remote monitoring systems that can satisfy almost any customer requirement in terms of the monitoring capability of their generator system. Modern technology in the form of electronics, micro-processors and controllers, printed circuit boards, computers, and mobile phones have all greatly contributed to increase the scope and ability to provide customers with an almost unlimited array of complex and reliable monitoring systems to meet any demand and specification.
When the utility power is lost to a building or other facility, frequently the building/facility monitoring system is rendered inoperable. In this case the building/facility maintenance manager is literally in the dark as to the status of the power supply, both utility and standby.
For installations that are monitored remotely, RP Power offer to generator system designers and managers a wireless solution. Our wireless solution provides:
Easy access to all your backup emergency generator system’s monitoring controls.
On a real-time basis, remote monitoring will give you the status of your emergency power backup system.
A wireless monitoring system from RP Power
allows you to receive alert status messages anytime day or night through cellular connection, e-mail, or text messaging.
For peace of mind you can rely on RP Power to monitor your standby generator system for you. We are the correct choice for a service provider to ensure your system is being monitored 24/7.
Constant remote monitoring of your emergency backup generator alerts you to any issues that need to be corrected immediately or during the next scheduled service. Don’t wait for a power outage to know that your unit has failed to come on line when required.
Price Tag for Data Center Outages Continues to Soar
The costs associated with data center power outages continue to rise, a fact confirmed by the Ponemon Institute in The 2016 Cost of Data Center Outages report. The group, which polled 63 data center organizations in the U.S. that had experienced an outage in the past 12 months, found the average cost of a data center outage in 2015 was a staggering $740,357. The price tag was up 38 percent from 2010, while the increase in the maximum downtime cost ($2,409,991) was even greater, climbing 81 percent over that same time period.
The most expensive cost was found to be business disruption, followed by lost revenue and end user productivity, IT productivity, detection, recovery, ex-post activities and equipment.
Among the publication’s other key findings:
The average total cost per minute of an unplanned outage increased from $5,617 in
2010 to $7,908 in 2013 to a current price tag of $8,851
The average cost of a data center outage rose from $505,502 in 2010 to $690,204 in
2013 to $740,357 in the latest study, representing a 38 percent increase in the cost
Maximum downtime costs are rising faster than average, increasing 81 percent since
2010 to a current high of $2,409,991
UPS failure, including UPS and batteries, is the No. 1 cause of unplanned data
center outages, accounting for one-quarter of all such events
Cybercrime represents the fastest growing cause of data center outages, accounting
for 2 percent of outages in 2010, 18 percent in 2013 and now 22 percent of those
polled in the latest downtime study
