A winter storm that instantly kills the power to your computers can instantly kill both hardware and data
Hoboken, New Jersey (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Winter storms are already making life miserable for travelers throughout the country and they have the potential to made life miserable for your business if your network goes down. A new article entitled: Winter storms and Your UPS from eMazzanti Technologies, an IT support and computer expert serving Hoboken, NJ and New York City areas, is available to read or download at: http://bit.ly/t8QdLk.
eMazzanti specializes in business continuity and disaster recovery for small and mid-size businesses. Carl Mazzanti, CEO, explains the critical nature of integrating a UPS and surge protection into your computer network. “A winter storm that instantly kills the power to your computers can instantly kill both hardware and data. UPS and surge protection devices provide an extra layer of insurance against power outages.”
Larger UPS devices, otherwise known as Battery Backups, may have power indicators that tell you how much battery capacity is left. Smaller devices may not have such indicators. If they are connected to a computer, chances are good they came with some software that gathers that information. Opening the software can give you some general idea of the overall health of your UPS. Either way, you can’t always believe the lights and software; the best test of a UPS is to periodically unplug it from the wall and seeing how long the items plugged in still run. Most UPS devices will beep until power is restored, so this is normal behavior.
Surge protectors fail over time as well, especially as they are subjected to the constant fluctuation in voltage. Most modern surge protectors have a light when power is running through it. If the light is steady, the surge protection is still functioning. If the light is flickering, you have minimal protection and should replace the surge protector.
