For multitenant data centers and colocation providers striving to maximize site utilization, the struggle is real. That’s because total power demand at each rack footprint is increasing. It’s also readily apparent in the United States, traditional power distribution of 480/208 VAC to maintain backward compatibility for 120 VAC equipment is finally coming under the microscope. In its wake, the promise of 415/240 VAC three-phase power distribution solution is rising. It delivers a more efficient and less expensive power system. 415/240 VAC also helps data center managers unlock stranded power capacity and ultimately increase rack space and rack density in the white space. A recent success story with data center powerhouse, Equinix, demonstrates how the 415/240 VAC transition is effective when there is close cooperation between operators and suppliers, and highlights how colocation providers can reap these benefits and pass them on to their customers.
