Schneider Electric - It can be challenging to justify and make a case when it comes to upgrading an existing deployment. Take the sudden shift to work from home (WFH) around the world as an example. Daunted by the complexity, the additional work of setting up a proper work environment, and concerns about whether the company will pay for it, many of us typically limp along with whatever we have. Why we don’t upgrade The same can be said of the data centre. While data centre professionals understand the significant gains that can be made by modernising data centre infrastructure, it is no walk in the park to convince senior management to take on the risks and cost of an upgrade. And we are not even talking about the technical challenges of designing and implementing an upgrade yet! Examples of a data centre upgrades might range from basic battery replacement, overhauling a backup power generator, swapping out an ageing uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system for a modern one, or upgrading the data centre infrastructure management to a newer version.
