Service Level Agreements (SLAs) around power in the Data Center world are not to be taken lightly. The responsibilities are clear. To avoid potential penalties, service providers must adhere to the promises they make to their multi-tenants—whether it’s reliable power and cooling, or more efficient workloads and energy levels. And in some cases, going beyond the use of preventive services is critical to meet such needs.
Predictive service programs come in all shapes and sizes, and can better enable service providers to differentiate themselves as the preferred provider through maximized uptime, reliability and reduced operating costs for multi-tenant providers. Through this proactive and comprehensive strategic maintenance approach, service providers can also establish comparative baselines and determine future equipment maintenance needs.
