Every company no matter how big or small typically has a data room where the routers, modems and servers are housed. The nature of these items cause a great deal of heat in the room so even in the coldest winter months, air conditioning is essential. If the power ever goes out and the components get hot, they can short out. This can be costly not only to replace them but for the work lost work that was saved in them. A network outage can easily shut down a company for many days until it is up and running again.
Power protection can enable the electrical system to continue working through back up power sources even at times when the power has been turned off. The following are some benefits of this:
- No Data Loss: when the servers and backup computers lose power they can also lose data. Power protection keeps the data safe from corruption as well as the losses that could occur.
- Power Surges: power surges can destroy electronic and computer equipment and in a data room, this can mean a great deal of money. Because the power does not go out, there is no fear of equipment being destroyed through power surges.
Not only is power protection good for the data room and saves a company money and potential data loss, it is also eco-friendly. When alternative power supplies are installed as a backup to the main electric supply, they can also be used in conjunction with the main power. Some instances of eco-friendly backup power supplies include:
- ECO UPS systems
- Solar Panels
Any of the above can be used for data room protection and alternative power supplies with ECO UPS Systems providing the greenest power protection. All companies know that the bottom line is to save money for the company as this translates into a larger profit margin. Thamesgate understands this bottom line and works hand in hand with companies to set up a power protection plan to fit every need. Even the smallest companies can benefit from having a power supply that is always constant.
