Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson, announced the release of SoftScale™ technology, the first software-based approach to UPS scalability, which is designed to allow enterprises to purchase the UPS capacity they need today while providing the flexibility to unlock additional capacity in the future through a software download.

SoftScale delivers on the promise of Liebert Adaptive Architecture by providing IT and data center managers with increased operating flexibility, higher availability, and lower total cost of ownership.

Operating flexibility is enabled through faster response to unpredictable changes in data center equipment or power requirements. UPS systems with SoftScale offer improved availability by growing capacity without adding hardware, minimizing the parts count and maintaining the simplicity of the UPS system. Cost of ownership is reduced by eliminating the cost associated with UPS installation when additional capacity is required.
