Redundant Power Circuits

If you require increased data center power availability, INAP offers redundant circuits in our colocation facilities.

Redundant circuits mitigate the potential for data center power outages within each cabinet or cage area. The following types of power redundancy are available at select data centers*:

Dual-Bus Redundancy
In INAP facilities that are 2N redundant, INAP offers dual-bus redundancy in which separate A and B feeds are connected to an entirely self-sufficient backup power system including diesel generator(s), an automatic transfer switch, UPS capacity, power bus and power distribution unit.

Power Delivery Unit (PDU) Redundancy
In INAP and partner facilities without 2N redundancy, you may be provided with redundant circuits connected to a different power distribution unit (PDU) rather than the primary feed. Both PDUs may share an upstream power bus, UPS and/or diesel generator.

Power Breaker Redundancy
If you are seeking only separate circuit breakers, INAP’s colocation solutions will deliver a separate breakered redundant circuit from the same PDU as the primary feed.

*Please note that these redundancy options are not available at all INAP colocation partner facilities.
