Why use UPS?
An Uninterruptible Power Supply is essential in today's business environments for continuity of operations.
Why have a Strategy for Uninterrupted Power?
A clean, continuous power supply is essential for today’s business environment. Power failure can mean downtime, reduced productivity, irrecoverable data and lost revenue. Unfiltered electricity can mean disturbances for system operations and processes and even damage to sensitive electronic equipment.
With a suitable emergency power strategy in place you will always have back-up power in the event of a mains failure and a filtered, regulated power supply limiting the detrimental effects of electrical disturbances at all times.
Why use UPS?
A UPS performs the following three basic functions:
- It prevents hardware damage typically caused by surges and spikes.
- It prevents data loss and corruption. Without a UPS, data stored on devices that are subjected to a hard system shutdown may become corrupted or even lost completely. In conjunction with power management software, a UPS can facilitate a graceful system shutdown.
- It enables continuity of business and availability for networks and other applications in the event of a power failure. UPS systems can also work in conjunction with generators where a longer run time is required.
