The main requirement of BRT was to equip each of the branches of an adequate system to guarantee the operation. Each of the branches includes a room used as a local data center with related issues of conditioning and electricity supply, especially in some areas of the south where the likelihood of interruptions in electricity is highest. “Our goal was to preserve the integrity of the equipment housed in the data center and to ensure continuity of service in case of stop the supply of electricity,” explains Silvio Lombardi, head of the systems, networks and telecommunications at BRT . Power surges and sudden detachment of the current may cause damage to servers and network devices which rely on the services and information systems, resulting in the loss of configuration data and subsequent recovery time, all at the expense of productivity and considerable costs. Not to mention the difficulty, for a really distributed throughout the territory as BRT, you can handle easily and proactively devices. The modern business organizations can find it in the monitoring and control centralized voice of increasing efficiency, saving considerable, all it enabled by solutions that allow configuration and operations remotely via web-based applications. In this, you can choose a unique and flexible enough to be replicated in any branch regardless of the requirements of supply and power consumption, was an important and decisive factor for defining standards of installation and management.
The choice In 2008, BRT has thus launched a first project involved the implementation of a type of UPS but has not fully met the demands of the BRT. This prompted the company to the choice of UPS’s IT division of Schneider Electric. In this phase, a decisive role was played by Lan & Wan Solutions, the Padua-based company specialized in consulting in ICT that has been able to steer towards the BRT solution.
“We had the perception of Schneider Electric as a brand highly reliable,” adds Alexander Bolelli, under Area TLC and management of Data Centers branches BRT. “With the help of Lan & Wan Solutions we have deepened the functionality of the models proposed to the identification of the UPS more appropriate.”
