SHANGHAI…Power management company Eaton has been honored with the “2015 Excellent Case of Corporate Social Responsibility for Foreign Enterprise” by China Association of Enterprises with Foreign Investment (CAEFI), recognizing its endeavors to help customers achieve sustainability  through innovative data center solutions.
Data centers are the storage and transformation hub of the enormous amount of data on the Internet. Operators of data centers are facing new challenges such as reducing operation cost, improving security and reliability of the systems. Eaton leverages its experiences in the data center segment globally and the specific needs of the China market to help its customers, such as CNOOC, a top internet company and three major telecom operators in China,  build their data centers with high efficiency, sustainability and reliability.
Product lifecycle management, improving the operation efficiency 
Eaton has recently delivered one of the biggest data center projects in China, the CNOOC project, in which Eaton provides not only a full set of equipment and relevant infrastructure, but also the installing and supporting service. The product lifecycle management system that Eaton has helped to establish can help to improve the operation efficiency of the data center and lower the cost of labor and equipment maintenance.  
The new CNOOC data center is located at the 4th floor of City of Future Science and Technology in Beijing. With the size of over 8,000 square meters, it is one of the most advanced data centers in the country. As the major supplier of the data center total solution, Eaton reacted quickly based on the special needs of the customer and provided a full set of infrastructure equipment like UPS, batteries, MV/LV power distribution assembly, etc. It ensured the reliability of the data center’s power supply and the sustainability of the entire project.
Ensure security and reliability, helping customers to deal with emergencies and special occasions
The “Double eleven” shopping spree is a great challenge to the data center of the top internet company. The stability and security of the system is crucial to the success of the event because even one minute of blackout could cause huge damage to the company. 
As the supplier of over 80% of UPS in the data center of the top internet company, Eaton keeps a close eye on the operation status of its data center during the whole event and stays ready for any possible emergency. The event is involved with online shopping behavior of millions of people, which is a rigorous and crucial test for Eaton’s product and service. Eaton has passed the test every year with its superior product and service quality and has gained the compliment of both its customers and end users.
Energy conservation and environmental protection, building a “Green” data center
With the increasing speed of data center construction, its high energy consumption and operation cost is becoming a more and more serious problem. Take the mobile operators as an example, their data center needs stable power supply on 365×24 basis, and thus needs the protection of highly reliable UPS products. With its rich experience and impressive product quality, Eaton is the supplier of the three major mobile operators in China and provides their data centers with power protection solution.
The Eaton 9395 Marine UPS is one of the most efficient and reliable products in the power protection industry. Its rated efficiency is over 99% and it is used by several data centers of Beijing Unicom as well as a major internet data center of China Telecom. It provides power protection with high efficiency and low energy cost. The China Mobile data center has also applied Eaton’s product, the 93E UPS, to provide their system with strong and reliable protection and maintain the sustainability of the data center.
