|Connected Smart-UPS – the world’s first cloud-enabled UPS|
According to the Wall Street Journal, large corporations such as Amazon, Alphabet, and Microsoft have invested $32 billion in “data refinery” with the expectation that the data will grow and become faster in the near future.
The more businesses depend on data, the more they take it seriously in investing in security and optimisation. Therefore, APC by Schneider Electric believes that power protection solutions are essential because they not only keep data confidential and transparent, but also maintain business productivity and efficiency.
Given that it is now more important than ever to protect information, UPS is an essential product in any critical infrastructure. UPS, which stands for uninterruptible power supply, is widely used in many industries and different fields such as telecommunications, television, printing, construction, and more. It helps provide backup power during disruption and can protect connected loads from surges, spikes, lightning, and other power disturbances. Besides that, it also increases the standby time for power contingency, automatically adjusts the voltage, and can check a device’s operability.
However, the disadvantage of many UPS systems is low capacity and over-reliance on human supervision. Battery failure is an unwanted incident especially in critical business technologies that can cause serious downturns and losses.
APC by Schneider Electric is a prominent name with reliability, safety, and a guarantee in providing the most stable, effective, and advanced power protection solutions. With nearly 40 years of development, APC by Schneider Electric has pioneered in bringing many power protection products and solutions as well as IT infrastructure which meets the requirements of businesses. Remarkable product lines such as Back-UPS or Easy UPS have provided practical support in initially solving power management issues such as stability and suitability.
As a pioneer in digitalisation in energy management and automation by capturing the advances of science, technology, and applying into products, APC by Schneider Electric continues to bring IT managers a superior protection solution which uses cloud computing to manage devices and the entire system, therefore helping innovative businesses immediately grab opportunities and improve operation efficiency.
APC by Schneider Electric recently introduced Connected Smart-UPS to the Vietnamese market – the first cloud-enabled UPS for distributed IT environments. Combined with APC SmartConnect software, the integrated power management solution solves business problems in resources as well as the device’s time management and monitoring.
Connected Smart-UPS with APC SmartConnect is one of the latest products available as part of Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure IT Data Center Management as a service architecture – an intelligent and connected platform which leverages data-driven insights to simplify the maintenance and operation of IT physical infrastructure.
The product provides certainty for the power source and ensures continuous connection with technology and information, as well as supports business operations.
APC SmartConnect software leverages Schneider Electric’s cloud-enabled EcoStruxure IT architecture to gather and send data about the health and status of a customer’s UPS devices, including battery replacement, warranty renewal, and UPS performance notifications.
Moreover, it provides a secure, cloud-based web portal where customers can view the status of their UPS, accessible from any internet-connected device. Sending customisable automatic notifications, firmware notifications updates, and advanced troubleshooting support through an easy-to-use remote monitoring interface and immediate deployment means that no configuration is required, making it easy for even non-technical users to install.
