Uninterruptible Power Supplies: Keeping Power Protected

Many businesses up and down the country rely on a variety of IT equipment in their offices - such as servers and telecoms equipment. These centres are hugely important as they house and operate the information, communication technology or 'ICT' infrastructure that supports their company.

Depending on the size of your business, you might have an IT infrastructure that contains a cage of equipment, or on a larger scale, a whole room dedicated to multiple cabinets such as a data centre. These centres, servers and devices store important company data and content.


So, take a moment to think about the implications of losing this information if the power was to fail. This is where an uninterruptible power supply can help. Let's find out more.

Losing Power

Without a sufficient uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system in operation, if the power fails and cuts off your existing IT infrastructure, your company could experience the following:

1) Lost or un-retrievable data, information and content

2) Downtime across your organisation effecting your existing IT devices

3) Damaging financial implications

4) Decreased staff productivity

As a business you'll want to do all you can to reduce the risk of a power outage occurring, to keep your data centres running and your company delivering the best results possible. Even if your data centre is housed externally, as opposed to in-house, there is still a risk of a minor or significant power outage if UPS batteries are not set up as a backup.

UPS Batteries

The UPS battery powering your UPS will provide your business with the power you need in a scenario if the mains power for your data centre fails. Should the power fail, UPS are designed to take over from the mains supply straight away, effectively in 'zero time' - meaning that your data and content will remain accessible, safe and secure.

This is hugely beneficial for your company, as it allows you to continue to operate as normal, access all of the information you need, and maintain solid business relationships.

A data centre which is protected with UPS batteries will also allow your business to:

1) Stay in control

2) Enhance security

3) Manage risk

Without this setup, it's very difficult for your business to regain control after a disaster until the initial problem is resolved - which could take a number of hours.
