Uninterruped Power Supplies - DP Air

  1. 1. Uninterrupted Power Supplies:The Importance of Protecting Data Center Equipment
  2. 2. Uninterrupted Power SuppliesBecause they prevent unplanned downtime of ITequipment, uninterrupted power supplies are criticalto all data center operations. They provide clean,uninterruptible power for computer systems thatexperience power failures, surges, spikes, noise,instability and other utility power problems. And, anuninterrupted power supply (UPS) system helpsprevent injuries, equipment damage, seriousbusiness disruptions and data loss from unexpectedpower outages.
  3. 3. Uninterrupted Power SuppliesA UPS will provide instantaneous, emergency powerwhen the input power source fails. During theseoutages, the UPS runs for a relatively short time.However, UPS systems run on batteries until back-up generators take over to provide uninterruptedpower to crucial data center equipment.Uninterrupted power supplies play an essential rolein protecting computers, data centers systems,telecommunications equipment and more.
  4. 4. Uninterrupted Power Supplies• Causes of Power Failures Numerous events can cause power outages that require uninterrupted power supplies. Regardless of the cause, the result is damage to the supply grid, which in turn affects power to the data center. Many utility outages can be attributed to natural events, including lightning strikes, heavy winds, major snowstorms, ice on the lines and other acts of Mother Nature. Other outages can be the result of accidents involving animals, trees and vehicles.
  5. 5. Uninterrupted Power Supplies• The Costs of Power Failures without Uninterrupted Power Supplies Even in a home environment, power losses can mean more than a little inconvenience. An interruption, regardless of how long, can cause downtime and damage to electronic equipment if no UPS is connected to the systems. In addition, data can be corrupted and lost.
  6. 6. Uninterrupted Power SuppliesHowever, when power outages occur in an industrialor business setting, the costs can be crippling. Theseenvironments are dependent on the constantfunction of computer and electrical systems. Whenthese systems are damaged and/or data is lost, theoperation incurs the costs associated withequipment replacement and maintenance,productivity losses from downtime, businessinefficiencies from data loss, customer serviceinterruptions and more.
  7. 7. Uninterrupted Power Supplies• The Need for UPS Systems Good data center design requires power backup systems to avoid the huge costs involved in outages. Sensitive equipment must be able to endure power failures without experiencing damage, downtime or data corruption. Incorporating uninterrupted power supplies is the best way to ensure equipment safety and ongoing functionality.
  8. 8. Uninterrupted Power Supplies• UPS systems are a common technology used to mitigate risk from power failures. The instant an outage occurs, uninterrupted power supplies take over supplying power to crucial equipment and operations continue without missing a beat.• Unfortunately, power outages continue to be a major cause of data center equipment downtime. However, good data center design that incorporates uninterrupted power supplies, batteries and generators provides the necessary backup systems to avoid the costly consequences of operation disruptions.
  9. 9. Uninterrupted Power SuppliesThe role uninterrupted power supplies play in datacenter operations cannot be understated. Givenutility power failures can be expected at some pointduring operations, data centers must be equipped towithstand the disruptions without adverse effects onthe business.
