  EVESHAM, ENGLAND, Feb 26 (Marketwire) -- 
Modular design is an attractive option for organisations who are
considering a new build or having to expand their existing data centre
facility. Adoption rates reflect this as the modular data centre market
sits at nearly USD $1 billion and forecasted to reach USD $2.5 billion by
2015.(1) Active Power's modular power solutions, in particular, provide
lower capital costs, faster capacity delivery, higher reliability due to
factory built and tested components, and greater efficiencies. 

    Active Power, manufacturer of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and
modular infrastructure solutions, will be exhibiting at Data Centre
World, 27-28 February, at the ExCeL in London to discuss with attendees
scenarios where it may make sense to consider a modular power design and
the performance and cost advantages of such an approach. As part of its
exhibit, the company will showcase its new PowerHouse(TM) and
CleanSource(R) High Density (CSHD) 625 kVA UPS at the conference at stand

    A modular continuous power infrastructure platform, PowerHouse offers a
lower acquisition cost, faster time to deployment, best-in-class
monitoring and analytics, and enhanced efficiencies, particularly when
compared to a traditional data centre electrical room. 

    PowerHouse will also feature Active Power's next generation CSHD UPS
which was introduced to market late last year. CSHD is the most power
dense UPS on the market at the 625 kVA power rating, delivering critical
power in half the space versus an equivalent legacy UPS.(2) At 97 percent
energy efficient, the system provides up to 30 percent savings in
operating expenses due to improved efficiencies and lower maintenance.(3)
