The core goals of managed power services are to ensure power source reliability, efficiency and availability, thereby minimizing downtime and data loss.

Managed power solutions for solution providers

In the rapidly evolving edge computing landscape, adopting innovative approaches is critical. The managed power services model is one such strategy revolutionizing the way IT systems function.

This strategy includes two basic functions according to Schneider Electric: “the remote monitoring and management of UPS and physical infrastructure and the use of data collection and analytics to improve the reliability and cost effectiveness of those assets.”

“With the rapid advancement in technology, the reliance on IT infrastructure has surged,” Global Market Insights, an analytics firm, explained in a report.
