Price Tag for Data Center Outages Continues to Soar

The costs associated with data center power outages continue to rise, a fact confirmed by the Ponemon Institute in, "The 2016 Cost of Data Center Outages Report". The group, which polled 63 data center organizations in the U.S. that had experienced an outage in the past 12 months, found the average cost of a data center outage in 2015 was a staggering $740,357. The price tag was up 38 percent from 2010, while the increase in the maximum downtime cost ($2,409,991) was even greater, climbing 81 percent over that same time period.

The most expensive cost was found to be business disruption, followed by lost revenue and end user productivity, IT productivity, detection, recovery, ex-post activities and equipment.

Kohler Expands KD Series Generator Line


Kohler has announced the expansion of its KD Series large industrial diesel generator sets with the rollout of several new units ranging up to 3250 kW (3500kVA).

The KD Series gen-sets initially debuted in October 2016, when Kohler and Kohler-SDMO said the new range, powered by engines developed in partnership with Liebherr, would eventually grow to encompass generators as large as 4000 kW at 60 Hz and 4200 kVA at 50Hz.

“It’s always rewarding to expand a product line in conjunction with strong market response,” said Tom Cromwell, group president-power for Kohler. “Our first wave of KD Series generators really resonated with key influences in the data center, healthcare, telecommunications and water treatment segments around the world. And we’re looking forward to providing these users — and many others — with additional Kohler-powered options that will deliver a similar mix of durability, fuel efficiency, and the many other benefits that have helped the KD Series to stand out in this competitive global category.”

The newest KD Series diesel industrial generators are powered by two new compact and powerful Kohler V16 diesels. The KD36V16 is a 16-cylinder, 36 L engine that will power the 60 Hz KD1250 and KD1350 as well as the 50 Hz KD1250, KD1400 and KD1500.

The 83 L KD83V16 diesel is a 16-cylinder engine that will drive the 60 Hz KD2800, KD3000 and KD3250, along with the 50 Hz KD3100, KD3300 and KD3500.
