GE Joins HP’s AllianceOne Partner Program

November 15, 2013 By William Opalka

GE PowerMOD-intGE’s Critical Power business has joined the HP AllianceOne Partner Program, and GE has deployed four of its PowerMOD modular containers as an AllianceOne member to provide double-redundant backup power to two of HP’s EcoPOD data centers for an HP customer.

Each of the four GE PowerMOD containerized systems uses GE electrical equipment including automatic transfer switches, switchboards and transformers, along with its new TLE Series uninterruptible power supply (UPS), which provides up to 97 percent power efficiency in double-conversion mode and up to 99 percent efficiency in eBoost or multi-mode operation. HP EcoPOD modular data centers can reduce annual facilities energy spend by as much as 95 percent with a PUE as low as 1.05, the company says.

The customer evaluated both traditional construction, which could take two years to build, and modular units, and chose HP’s EcoPOD with GE’s PowerMOD critical-power container.
