Siam Commercial Bank expanded its IT infrastructure with Tier 3 data center to provide 99.982% uptime for data availability. In order to qualify as a Tier 3 data center.
To address the strict requirements of a Tier 3 data center, Cummins Power Generation designed a prime power system consisting of four units of Cummins Power Generation C2250D5 generator sets, powered by QSK60G4 engines and a DMC 1000 PowerCommand® paralleling system
The project was a success because of Cummins’ ability to provide an end-to-end solution which includes designing an integrated, highly reliable and efficient prime power system and providing 24/7 maintenance and support services from field service engineers who have more than 15 years of industry experience under their belt.
The implementation of the Cummins power system enabled Siam Commercial Bank to reap tremendous cost savings with a 9.5% reduction in running costs due to optimized fuel consumption. Due to the nature of Cummins’ pre-integrated power systems, Siam Commercial Bank was able to reduce the commissioning cost by 2%. The resultant data center facility was highly reliable and achieved an actual downtime of less than one hour annually, which is a much-lower figure as compared to the required Tier 3 requirement of 1.6 hours per annum.
