“When the APC InfraStruXure™ first came out, we were intrigued by the innovative thinking behind the architecture. The design clearly reflects the needs of today’s business environment. Old, large mainframes are out; smaller, more nimble data centers are in. InfraStruXure works very well in the data center realm and is simple to implement.

They allow seamless operation of system-critical loads, have scalable levels of stored energy based on external battery strings, and serve as a barrier to most forms of power distortions hazardous to hi-tech facilities.
