CyberPower is a global power management solution provider. Its offers high-efficiency power management products, ranging from PDUs, UPS Systems, Racks, Power Management Software, Inverters, Solar Energy Systems, Surge Protectors, Mobile Accessories, etc. CyberPower is committed to develop and offer green solutions in its diversified portfolio. Below is a transcript from a recent interaction between team IT-Voice and Sandeep Shirodkar, Manager of Channel Sales and MARCOM at CyberPower Systems:

Prateek: What is the scope of solar power systems in India? How is the response for the solar power systems by CyberPower in the market?

Sandeep Shirodkar: Solar energy is environment friendly. Hence it is very suitable for India, India being one of the most polluted countries in the world. Solar power is inexhaustible. Thus, in an energy deficient country like India, where power generation is costly, solar energy is the best alternative means of power generation.

With the target at global branding, what we provide is not only award-winning engineering excellence but reliable and innovative power protection for the sense of security. By working with solar panels, the CyberPower products can provide renewable and clean energy, which enables users to save energy costs, help the environment, and use the unlimited resources of solar energy. It is designed to achieve up to 99.9% tracking efficiency by adopting Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology, the product can yield the most power available, providing users the highest amount of solar energy.

Prateek: With a shift in government policies a rise in data centers is being seen. What solutions does CyberPower offer in the segment?

Sandeep Shirodkar: Data center infrastructure has been the driving force in the rise of the digital economy. The data center industry has matured rapidly over the past decade and stands ready to meet the challenges of the accelerating transition to a digital world. Energy storage enables large users like data centers to overcome the intermittent generation patterns of leading renewable sources.

CyberPower’s best-in-class three-phase Uninterruptible Power Supply presents unparalleled adaptability to meet different sizes of data centers, assuring maximum uptime of mission-critical equipment and services while reducing operating costs with energy-efficient technology.

A data center requires maximum availability to maintain the seamless operation of IT service. In order to support high-performance service 24x7x365 even under fault conditions, a data center often adopts dual power paths to dual-corded loads. Simply, every load receives power from two independent power sources, each of which is capable of supporting the entire system during a power source failure.

To meet such demand, CyberPower recommends dual power paths for a single server cabinet as follows: both power source paths originating from a generator-compatible Datacenter UPS. The two PDUs in the cabinet are then powered by Input Power #1 and Input Power #2 respectively and distribute power to dual-corded loads. Single-corded equipment can also be integrated into the maximum availability environment by using CyberPower Auto Transfer Switches (ATS). The ATS is designed to switch between two power sources and can enhance power redundancy to equipment with a single power cord.

When one UPS fails, the other UPS will take over to provide power to loads, protecting both single and dual-corded equipment from downtime and ensuring continuous operation all the time.

CYBERPOWER Data center UPS come with a host of the interface, be it the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) or the MODBUS based communication to work in IBMS environment. This advanced software in addition to the conventional monitoring, scheduling also provides control features giving the best of manageability. Hyper-converged datacenters normally operate on a dedicated software layer which CYBERPOWER can easily communicate with a host of options to choose from. Yes, there is a perfect synergy with our power management software. There are various options to choose from including the one which will work on NMS layers.

Prateek: Please tell us more about the GreenPower UPS by CyberPower.

Sandeep Shirodkar: CyberPower has been globally recognized as a brand committed to Green UPS designs. In response to the rapidly rising energy prices as well as the increasing environmental awareness, CyberPower’s patented GreenPower UPS™ energy-saving technology successfully improves UPS operating efficiency while also effectively reduces heat build-up. The advanced technique of GreenPower UPS™ Technology is accomplished by eliminating the unnecessary power loss during UPS operation, enhancing more energy savings compared to conventional UPS systems.

In data centers, UPS systems are like servers that stay operating during the whole year and can easily consume up to 100 times more energy than a standard office building. In addition, reports show that UPS systems normally consume 18% of the electricity for data centers. By adopting CyberPower’s GreenPower UPS™ design, UPS systems are guaranteed to reduce power consumption by up to 93% compared to conventional UPS systems. As a result, it allows IT managers to enjoy significant energy cost savings with energy-saving equipment for data centers and industrial applications.
