Why do I need a UPS

Uninterruptible power supplies (UPSes) help prevent damage from power loss and common electrical fluctuations. 

A UPS is a device that provides consistent backup power during inconsistent power issues.

Abrupt loss of electricity prevents systems from closing open applications, completing replication actions, finishing disk activities, and shutting down properly. Lost data and corrupted databases and applications often result.

Before investing in a UPS ensure you are selecting the right size (Va) for your needs and that the UPS not only supports you during a power-cut but also if there is a power surge – the UPS needs to be a surge suppressor also.
