A vast installation of five generator sets – provided by Visa Spa equipped with Perkins engines – is giving a data centre in Kazakhstan the 8.5 MVA of power it needs to safely serve a key banking customer.
In recent years, data has become one of society’s most valuable resources. As a result, data centres are now central to the successful operations of millions of businesses.
The importance of big data isn’t lost on one of Kazakhstan’s largest data centres, which manages critical data for a major banking group. If the centre were to lose power, its own operating system could be undermined. The domino effect on its customer would be catastrophic, with all key services likely to come to a sudden stop.
With such serious potential consequences, it was essential the data centre sourced a leading-edge standby power system. It approached Italian manufacturer Visa Spa through its local dealer to deliver a solution that would ensure data continued to flow, without fail, should the mains drop out.
