ICE Switch Unlocks Unutilized Power in Data Centers

In August, CUI released the ICE Switch, a power monitoring and switching system that provides dynamic redundancy inside a data center. In a traditional data center, power is typically provisioned to be 2N redundant, meaning that 50% of the power infrastructure is untapped to provide redundancy in the event of a failure. The ICE Switch unlocks additional power by allowing data centers to utilize that stranded power for 1N non-critical servers.
