GE's Reliable, Three-Phase Uninterruptible Power Supply System Provides Redundant, Centralized Power Management and Energy Efficiency in CoreSpace's Dallas Data Center

DALLAS — GE's Critical Power business (NYSE: GE) has announced that CoreSpace, a provider of dedicated servers and cloud services, is introducing a new service level agreement guarantee for power protection in its Dallas data center. The center now employs GE's highly reliable SG Series, three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system running in eBoost* energy efficiency mode. One of the first infrastructure improvements CoreSpace made when it acquired its Dallas data center was to install a 500-kilovolt UPS system to replace more than 230 distributed single-phase UPS units connected to each of the individual 45-U[1 (73.5-inch high) server racks. The GE UPS system enabled a centralized power management approach, bringing a new level of uptime, quality and reliability to CoreSpace's Dallas data center, while also generating significant energy cost savings.

Prior to deploying GE's centralized power management system, CoreSpace's distributed UPS architecture used more than 100 kilovolt-amperes (kVA) of power annually, with additional energy and dollars expended to cool the more than 345,000 British thermal units (BTUs) produced by the 230 single-phase UPS units. Since deploying the GE SG Series UPS system, CoreSpace is realizing energy savings of 92 kVA a year, which translates to $88,800 per year in energy savings by running the UPS system at 99 percent efficiency in eBoost mode. The company also reduced its data center cooling costs with the new GE system, cutting the total single-phase UPS BTU output from 345,000 BTUs to just 14,000 BTUs for the three-phase UPS system.

"Power efficiency is a critical factor in controlling the operational expenses in our data centers," said Liana Dunlap, president and CEO of CoreSpace. "The GE UPS system has dramatically reduced our overall power usage, significantly cutting our power costs and providing savings we can pass directly to our customers. Also, as a full-service data center and hosting provider, availability is a vital performance measurement for us. Since installing the GE UPS system, we are able to deliver higher levels of service and support for our customers."

During CoreSpace's shift to a centralized power management system, the company also added other critical infrastructure, such as backup diesel power generation from Cummins, which provides 1,500 kVA of extended power backup. Additionally, a GE ZTS automatic transfer switch provides seamless switching between the GE UPS system and external power generation systems. CoreSpace also is using GE's iUPS Guard to remotely monitor and diagnose the status of the UPS system, a GE surge protection device and GE Critical Power Services, which provide around-the-clock response services 365 days a year.

"GE's energy efficient and reliable UPS technology not only boosted CoreSpace's energy savings, it helped shift their business model to expand their service reliability for a host of new data center customers," said Jeff Schnitzer, general manager, GE's Critical Power business.
