In-Depth Redundancy

Issue 4 and Volume 106.

Sure Power has applied its Redundant Array of Independent Devices (RAID) to the creation of power for large-scale data centers and Web Hotels. The RAID technology allows a system to generate electricity without a single point of failure. By incorporating redundant devices (in this case gas turbines, fuel cells, and gas reciprocating engines) into site-specific power generating facilities, the system does not depend on any individual component to operate.
