The Situation

Alliance Systems President Rusty Cone learned the importance of business continuity planning from experience. Before joining Alliance, he helped his former company recover from a fire that destroyed one-third of its facility. The incident impressed upon Cone the importance of continuity planning. Once at Alliance, he made business continuity planning for data center infrastructure a priority. The first step in developing Alliance’s business continuity plan was to conduct a risk assessment, which revealed vulnerabilities in the uninterruptible power protection system.


  • Elevated IT system availability and enhanced business continuity.
  • Eliminated heat-related issues resulting from continued expansion.
  • Created foundation and plan for future data center infrastructure growth.
“We went through due diligence on alternatives and were comfortable with the fact that Liebert was best-of-breed. We only wanted to work with the best.”
