Do you protect your server with an UPS?
An Uninterrupted Power Supply is an important piece of kit that will continue to power your server in the event of a power cut. A UPS detects changes to the electricity current and in the event of a power surge or power cut, will kick in with battery power to ensure your server doesn’t instantly shut down causing damage to both the server itself and your data. The UPS will keep your server running long enough to perform an orderly and safe shutdown before switching off completely. It will also ensure that your server can be rebooted efficiently once power to the mains is restored.
Different types of UPS are available and we can recommend the best type for your server and business needs. It’s a critical piece of kit – please take the time to consider whether yours is still effective or coming to the end of its natural life. Why not explore our IT support services Birmingham?
