Centiel UPS technology safeguards AI and blockchain infrastructure in Singapore’s tech landscape.



In the vibrant metropolis of Singapore, where innovation thrives and technology reigns supreme, one global leader stands as a beacon of progress in the digital landscape. Specializing in blockchain and high-performance GPU computing, this tech giant is synonymous with innovative solutions and groundbreaking advancements. Behind the scenes of its cutting-edge facilities, however, lies a critical challenge: ensuring an uninterrupted power supply to support its intricate operations.

The challenge

A global leader in blockchain and highperformance computing technology, located in the heart of Singapore, faced a critical challenge: ensuring an uninterrupted power supply capable to support its complex dedicated GPU’s operations. As the backbone of innovation in artificial intelligence and computing, any disruption to IT loads could have serious consequences. Potential outcomes included loss of revenue and irreparable damage to the company’s image.

The solution

Centiel’s UPS Distributed Technology proved to be the strategic solution for this forwardthinking technology hub. Designed to meet the dynamic demands of modern GPU computing loads, Centiel’s solution promised the highest levels of availability and flexibility. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, including Distributed Active-Redundant Architecture (DARA), Centiel’s modular UPS ensured “fail-safe” and “safehotswap” capabilities, providing seamless power even in the midst of unforeseen challenges.

The impact

The new UPS systems were seamlessly integrated into the technology giant’s infrastructure, providing peace of mind that its operations were protected against potential power outages. When the impact was quantified, the results were astounding: Not only did the company avoid downtime and enhance its reputation as a reliable provider of advanced computing solutions, it also contributed to the advancement of technology on a global scale.

Providing uninterrupted power to the AI cloud computing hardware and software applications supports the company in maintaining its position as an industry pioneer.
