Founded in 2000, FORTRUST’s mission is to create value for their clients through the four pillars of Reliability, Risk Mitigation, Business Value and Exceptional Customer Service. To ensure they achieve the goal, they have ordered two 2.5 megawatt EURO-DIESEL NO-BREAK KS® units to support the expansion of their Denver, USA datacentre which spans more than 300,000 sq. ft. and 34 MVA of power capacity. The original phase of the project featured traditional raised floor colocation space, but FORTRUST now deploys space using data centre modules from BASELAYER and CenterCore.

COO Rob McClary and his team spent two years reviewing their options for backup power. The search soon focused on DRUPS units and EURO-DIESEL in particular.

"We have seen increased customer demand for premium colocation services," said McClary. "The addition of DRUPS will allow us to serve the growing high density needs of our customers and to do that in a more efficient manner."

Efficiency with energy and space is important, but McClary’s primary focus was on reliability and whether the DRUPS could enable FORTRUST to extend its enviable record for continuous uptime. FORTRUST has had 100 percent availability in its Denver datacentre since it opened its doors in September 2001, a stretch of more than 14 years.

McClary went on to say that DRUPS are more efficient; have a longer-life cycle and take up less space than traditional static UPS and batteries, providing more expansion capabilities within FORTRUST’s datacentre.

"Our investment in DRUPS is part of our mission to innovate and create efficiencies in the datacentre industry," says Bryon Miller, Chief Data Centre Officer at FORTRUST. "We’re committed to being a leader in the datacentre space."

EURO-DIESEL are delighted to be working with FORTRUST and look forward to helping them to maintain their enviable reliability record.
