Eaton introduces blackout prediction app

Power management specialist Eaton has launched an app that aims to predict and manage power outages at data centres.

The “Blackout and Power Outage Tracker” is designed to enable data centre managers to check their susceptibility to grid outages, claimed Eaton.

The app works on the state of the power grid locally and across the national coverage of the UK and Ireland.

The system can identify causes, duration and number of people affected by power outages. It calculates the regional impact and gives data centres background information for submitting damage claims against their utility provider, according to Eaton.

Blackouts caused by accidents, grid over-demands or natural disasters are unpredictable, but Eaton wants to focus on prevention.

“Although some of these causes may be unpreventable, with the right power protection a company can help protect its data and equipment during any blackout,” said Steve Spicer, sales manager at Eaton.

Eaton claimed it uses the app to draw awareness to the need of uninterruptible power supplies.

The company recently introduced its power management system, which is integrated with EMC’s VSPEX infrastructure system.

Phone directories. When was the last time you used one?  I remember the time you could find one in the drawer just under the TV in the Marriott but we threw them out at home years ago— a bit like conference proceedings— remember the days of telephone directory conference proceedings? And the same is true of trade directories.
 
These days we look online— for everything. Plumbers, restaurants and even separator manufacturers and battery machine makers. And that’s why ESPL has created an online battery industry directory.
 
The beauty of it is that it is never out of date… If you’re in it then you have the means to update it, change your phone numbers, sales reps, logos and anything else you can think of. To learn more click on this link which takes you straight through to the directory. It’s all part of the growing digitisation of publishing. Which is why, here at ESPL, we’re investing very heavily in digital.
 
We’re already producing three newsletters: BEST Battery Briefing, Chinese BEST Battery Briefing and Critical Power Briefing. From July the Battery Briefings goes weekly… that’s 20,000 named and opted-in contacts reading our news and information every week (and maybe seeing your advertisement?) straight to your eMail inbox.
 
This month our Chinese readers get an even better deal: they can read Chinese BEST via an App on both Android and Apple devices. No waiting around for the mail to deliver.

If you think tablets are for spoiled kids, think again!
I just bought one from another US giant (other than Apple) that does everything an iPad can do at a fraction of the price. Think how much cheaper it will be next year. Things have come a long way since Compuserve…
