UPS - Uninterruptible Power Supply

What you need to know about UPS

Back to Glossary

Whether you’re an engineer, programmer, or responsible for the company’s IT facilities in any shape or form, an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) could be one of the most valuable assets at your disposal. Here’s what you need to know.

The Safety Net Your Business Needs

Let’s face it; the company’s reliance on technology is greater than ever, which means you will also need reliable power sources at all times. A UPS, sometime referred to as an Uninterruptible Power Source is essentially an electrical apparatus that kicks in to provide power when the primary sources are down.  It is a better solution than backup generators as energy is stored in batteries and super capacitors to provide an instant supply of energy. This enables you to fight the threat of lost work and reduced productivity with greater efficiency. Even when the main supply is down, the business will continue to perform as normal. 

Protecting Your Business Assets

Aside from preventing power outages, the use of an Uninterruptible Power Supply actively protects computers and other equipment. After all, power loss can lead to corrupt files and data, leading to expensive restorations even when the company works are secured by the cloud. As the name suggests, a UPS ensures that your business is uninterrupted.  This also protects employees that use equipment and machinery where power losses could put their safety at risk. Whether you need to support a single office room or an entire enterprise, UPS facilities are the answer. Whether it’s an offline, line-interactive, or double-conversion solution, the potential benefits are huge.
