Do you know if your UPS is installed correctly?

UPS

Would you go sky diving without a parachute?

Most business at some stage experience power related disruptions, causing critical data loss or corruption for companies without an adequate protection solution in place.

How to avoid losing critical data

Without some form of battery backup of UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) solution in place, a power loss results in your servers immediately powering off which could cause corruption to key system files and company data.  Having the correct UPS solution in place allows your servers to continue running in such an event, if power is not restored before the available battery power is used then software installed on your server will run the graceful shutdown procedure on your server to ensure there is no data loss.

Having a UPS solution installed correctly brings a number of advantages:

  •          Low cost in comparison to recreating missing data
  •          Avoids the expense of having systems or 3rd party software installed from the ground up
  •          Increases uptime and availability of critical business systems
  •          Peace of mind

 

Already have a UPS, is it setup correctly?

Many businesses already have a UPS, but we find that quite often they are not setup correctly.  The software to tell the server to switch off when battery life is low is often not installed, so when battery life eventually runs out, the server loses power as it would in a power cut.  99% of the cost has already been paid if you already own a UPS, so having it setup properly is inexpensive and could save you a lot of time and money.
