Problem Resolution

overview

Data Center may face critical problems such as power and cooling reliability, hot spots, water and fire risks

as well as prospect of life-safety systems inadvertently crashing the facility.  UE’s thorough root-cause

analysis includes assessment and study, power quality monitoring, airflow measurements and testing.

Critical facility problems include power and cooling reliability, hot spots, water and fire risks and risks of life-

safety systems inadvertently crashing the facility.  UE’s root-cause analysis includes assessment and study,

power quality monitoring, airflow measurements and testing.

Not all problems need to be resolved, especially where resolution is costly, risky or otherwise disruptive. But

to effectively live with and manage a problem, the risks need to be fully understood.

Many issues can be resolved at low cost and low risk. UE is often engaged to dig into a failure, uncover the

root cause and provide mitigation options. UE is often brought in to resolve a specific problem:
Failures, especially repeat failures causing unplanned downtime
Replacing and often re-configuring end-of-life equipment
Not enough white space, or too much white space
Not enough utility power, generator, UPS or PDU capacity
Not enough cooling capacity or hot spots/poor air management
Inability to perform required maintenance without presenting undue risk
Emergency Power Off (EPO) shutdown risk
Water intrusion risk
Physical security risk

UE can lead or assist with emergency replacement of failed equipment including UPS systems, switchgear,

generators and cooling equipment.  Challenges can include the need to deploy temporary, rental equipment

and other work-arounds while permanent equipment can be sourced and implemented.
