the bad weather causing havoc across the country; the risk of power
cuts is higher than ever. It’s vital you have a system in place to
protect your IT network, especially your server, in the event of a power
cut. You can do this quite simply using a piece of equipment known as a
UPS (uninterruptible power supply).
cuts or fluctuations (i.e. when your lights flicker) cause total
failure or sudden spikes and dips in the power supply. These are not
good news for your IT system. Servers, PC’s and other IT equipment are
built to receive and operate with 230-volt AC power. While most IT
equipment can cope with some fluctuation in the power supply, significant deviations such as those happening with the current severe
storms can cause problems and seriously damage your equipment. A UPS
acts as a filter, controlling the amount of power flowing to your
equipment and protects your hardware in a number of ways:
A typical UPS can usually maintain and filter the power to several items of equipment. However, the more equipment it is maintaining, the faster the battery power will deplete in the event of a power cut.
If you already have a UPS unit installed, please double-check to ensure you are protected from power problems.
