Do you have a properly working uninterruptible power supply (UPS)? If not, please replace it as soon as possible.
A UPS protects critical data in the event of an electrical failure at your plant. If trouble strikes, the UPS kicks in to provide uninterrupted power to the server. Open files, such as sensitive databases, can then be closed in a controlled manner and damage avoided.
In addition to data loss, a UPS can prevent system crashes, downtime, lost production and even irreparable hardware damage.
Almost half of computer failures and the associated losses can be attributed to voltage problems – with 60% due to undervoltage, 30% to overvoltage and approximately 8% to voltage peaks.
The internal batteries that power the UPS have a lifespan of about five years. Life is somewhat dependent on ambient temperatures: The warmer the temperature, the shorter the life.
Securing a UPS is an easy, affordable insurance policy. If a problem arises, you’ll be glad you took action.
