Can you run your data center off-grid?

Do you trust your electrical grid? As a mission critical system, data centers cannot afford downtime - but that's just what the grid can cause. With nations like Ireland struggling to support surging data center demand, and new technologies changing the data center energy mix, it has become technically feasible to run a major data center off-grid, and potentially lucrative to at least diversify one's energy supply. With gas-powered facilities, fuel cells, lithium-ion battery farms and more, it's time to start thinking differently about the grid.
