Gain reliable, efficient, adaptable power distribution with APC's iBusway Solution.
In This Article
WWT's Advanced Technology Center (ATC) is a dynamic innovation ecosystem built on a continually changing set of physical and virtual labs. To make the ATC a reality for our customers and partners, we are continually adding and removing servers, storage arrays, networking devices and entire equipment racks.
With continual changes to existing infrastructure and the need to quickly deploy new racks, we needed a better solution: APC iBusway for Data Center.
The iBusway for Data Center solution is a plug-in busway power distribution system designed specifically to deliver power to IT racks. This solution requires no IT floor footprint and eliminates centralized cable distribution. Using flexible pre-assembled tap-off units and APC's PowerLogic energy metering, iBusway for Data Center is a modular solution that minimizes unintended downtime, adapts to changing needs and optimizes your data center availability and energy efficiency.
iBusway provides WWT with multiple advantages over our legacy manual power solutions, including:
Total cost of ownership: iBusway offers superior reliability, space-saving overhead design and energy efficiency.
Manageability: iBusway provides real-time power monitoring and enhanced connection-point visibility.
Adaptability: iBusway allows for quick installation and high density of deployment.
Availability: iBusway eliminates cable clutter, eliminates under-floor and human error challenges and comes factory-assembled and tested snap-together components.
