APC Smart UPS Uninterruptible Power Supply

Does your server just shut off every time the power goes out and have problems restarting afterwards? That loud beeping sound you hear in your server room maybe overloaded or dead batteries in your current Uninterruptible Power Supply – UPS. The purpose of the UPS is to keep your server, Internet, firewall, switches and wireless network running in the event of a power failure.  Poor electrical circuits and power spikes from lightning can cause severe hardware damage and cause significant downtime.  The UPS should gently shut down the server preventing database corruption, file loss and OS damage.   When the batteries are getting low the system should send notifications to key personnel, and automatically turn it on when power is restored.

To effectively select the right UPS solution, we will determine what power circuits exist in your server room and if additional circuits are required.   We will design the UPS solution based upon the uptime you require for critical systems in the event of a power failure.  Sometimes you just need enough emergency power to get through a brown out until your emergency generators kick in or you may require extended uptime.
