American Power Conversion (APC), a global provider of end-to-end infrastructure availability solutions, announces a fully assembled InfraStruXure system integrated with a Smart-UPS VT power module, hot-swappable batteries and integrated power distribution. This new InfraStruXure system offers quick connect components and turnkey features to speed up deployment time. The system also decreases total-cost-of-ownership by minimizing space and reducing operating, installation and expansion costs. Since the InfraStruXure with Smart-UPS VT architecture uses a modular and scalable design approach, users can expand the system by adding APC's innovative in-row cooling, centralized management and security products for enhanced capabilities.
"Our legendary and award winning Smart-UPS line coupled with our innovative InfraStruXure architecture provide our customers with highly agile and available solutions for their IT environments," said Dwight Sperry, APC's vice president of Enterprise Systems and Business Networks. "The system's high power density, small form factor and modular architecture make it ideal for applications ranging from high density, disaster recovery and VoIP/IP telephony."
This new network critical physical infrastructure (NCPI) solution offers a fully-integrated system at a lower initial investment and incorporates several innovative features such as a single rack-based design for better utilization of floor space, higher power efficiency for lower operating costs and a new power distribution design for simplified installation and expansion. Finally, the system improves availability with additional internal battery capacity for runtime scalability.
The new InfraStruXure with Smart-UPS VT is ideal for server rooms and small data centers as well as for remote locations including regional offices. The systems are available in 20KVA and 30KVA, with 208V and 480V input and are now available in North America. InfraStruXure with Smart-UPS VT will be available in July for most countries worldwide.

APC's InfraStruXure is on-demand architecture for network-critical physical infrastructure (NCPI). The InfraStruXure design, which integrates power, cooling, rack, management and services, allows the selection of standardized components to create a solution through modular and mobile configurations. This standardization enables an easily scalable architecture designed to meet changing needs and future expansion. This award-winning, patent-pending approach provides increased availability, improved adaptability and speed of deployment as well as lower total cost of ownership for IT environments " from wiring closets to computer rooms to data centers.
With integrated management becoming a critical component in the NCPI, APC offers comprehensive management solutions including InfraStruXure Manager. A browser accessible, user-friendly tool, InfraStruXure Manager provides monitoring of power, cooling, and environmental management at the rack or room level. APC also provides professional services that optimize the NCPI over the complete data center life cycle, including planning, installation, operation and end-of-life services.
