Four Damaging Risks of Losing Data Centre Power

Retaining information, content and data is hugely important for the success of any business, regardless of its size.

With this in mind, consider a scenario whereby your company was no longer able to gain access to this critical information. Whilst the primary job of a data centre is to house this type of content, the effects of losing power can be extremely detrimental to your business.

Let’s take a look at five of these potential risks in greater detail.

Financial Implications

First and foremost, limited or restricted access to your data and content can put a halt to business operations.

The knock-on effect of this means that even simple day-to-day tasks will be compromised, as you can no longer provide an optimum service. This can result in your company suffering financially until the problem is resolved.

As the saying goes, time is money, and this is even more relevant where business is concerned, so you’ll want to ensure you avoid this situation occurring at all costs.

Decreased Productivity

Another fundamental aspect of a successful business is a productive and efficient workplace. Losing data centre power can restrict staff access to the information they need in order to do their job properly.

In this scenario, it’s likely that productivity will decrease, which again can have a damaging effect on generating new business and increasing revenue.

This is where you need to make sure you have a sufficient back-up plan to deal with these risks and restore business operations back to normal.

Un-retrievable Data

Losing information even for a short period of time isn’t an ideal situation, so imagine if you couldn’t access this data ever again.

Without a sufficient back-up plan in place (such as the installation of UPS batteries), when the power fails, you run the risk of losing data for good.

If this information is un-retrievable, then your staff will have no option other than to accept that the data is gone, or alternatively spend additional time recreating the content they need.

This puts added pressure on your business, as resources aren’t being used to maximise efficiency.

Company Downtime

If you lose data centre power then you will experience downtime across your business until the problem is fixed. This of course will be a different scenario if you have a back-up plan in operation.

Downtime can affect IT devices and technologies, which can lead to further issues for your company. When it comes to business, don’t compromise, or put yourself in a position where these risks can affect the day-to-day running of your organisation.

Instead, speak to a professional battery supplier to eliminate or reduce the risk factor of any of the above.
