Liebert Case Study - American Eagle Federal Credit Union


American Eagle Federal Credit Union


American Eagle is the largest community credit union in Connecticut with more than 97,000 members and $1.1 billion in assets.

The Situation

American Eagle Federal Credit Union offers its members a wide range of retail financial services, including 24-hour online banking. This broad, anytime offering makes continuous operation of mission-critical technology a business necessity for AEFCU and its 17 branches throughout central Connecticut. For nearly two decades, the company has relied on Emerson Network Power’s Liebert technology for continuous, uninterruptible power protection. When it came time to replace an 18-year-old backup power unit in its data center design, AEFCU again turned to Emerson Network Power.


  • Replaced aging equipment with state-of-the-art UPS with minimal service interruption.
  • Achieved high availability of data and IT services across a network of branch offices requiring business continuity.
  • Improved energy usage by installing a more efficient UPS.
“[The Liebert Npower is] a stable, well-tested solution that offers the protection we need. The fact that the unit it replaced was 18 years old speaks to the mechanical soundness of Liebert technology.”
- Jim Evans, senior vice president of information technology, American Eagle Federal Credit Union
