EEC has been maintaining data center critical infrastructure for over 30 years. Over that period of time we have collected data on equipment longevity and the factors which can contribute to equipment failure. Since most data center grade equipment is designed to last a decade or more, there is a tendency to take its reliable operation for granted.Read More
Planning for the inevitable power outage can be thought of as a continuum from no backup power to complete coverage of all circuits in all locations. There is no single point on that continuum that is right for every business. For some businesses, locking the doors and waiting for power to return might be a viable alternative. For others, full operation for the duration of the outage is the only option. For most companies with branch operations, the best solution is often a strategic mixture of coverage based on the critical nature of products or services, location, population density or any number of other factors.Read More

H5 Data Centers is a leading privately owned data center operator with over 1,000,000 sq ft under management. They provide data center services to enterprise clients in  strategically located data centers in the following geographical locations:
|Ashburn, VA||Atlanta, GA|
|Charlotte, NC||Denver, CO|
|Phoenix, AZ||San Jose, CA|
|San Luis Obispo, CA||Seattle, WA|
H5 provides a variety of 3rd party data center services to corporate clients and public entities throughout theUS. Today, corporate enterprises are moving internal IT services to 3rd party providers, like H5, to capitalize on the explosion of “cloud” services [public and private] and to move to more of an Opex cost model so IT teams can concentrate on their core competency.
In 2015 and early 2016; EEC worked with H5’s team on 9 projects to increase their national footprint and improve their business strategy. EEC’s data center assessment and a design/build services enabled H5 to aggressively initiate tasks to meet these objectives. The following are two examples of how EEC’s team worked with H5 to enhance their services:Read More

Growing capacity needs and big competition in the cloud and colocation markets are causing equipment efficiency and energy costs to once again be top-of-mind for data center owners, operators and even information technology teams. Today, a primary factor limiting data center capacity is the ability to quickly and cost-effectively accommodate growing power requirements. Furthermore, the capability to do so while maintaining a low PUE and high-energy efficiency is critical for the growth and competitive advantage of data center providers. Operating at a low Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is key - and largely dependent on data centers’ critical infrastructure equipment.
To help meet growing capacity needs, data centers are looking to third-party preventive maintenance providers who, together with their utility partners, can offer integrated solutions and incentive programs that can reduce costs and positively impact equipment replacement or upgrade decisions.Read More
