Macquarie Telecom hauls DRUPS into data centre

Macquarie Telecom has become the latest data centre builder to kit out a new facility with diesel rotary uninterruptible power supply systems. The first of an undisclosed number of the 30-tonne, 2.5 megawatt generators has been deployed at Macquarie's A$60 million Intellicentre 2 data centre in Sydney's north-west.

The generators - known as DRUPS - are being favoured in new builds over traditional battery-based UPS. They still perform the same function - powering the facility in the period between the start of an outage and the back-up diesel generators coming online.
