Today our Tech Ken has some insights into power management and the benefits of a battery back up solution.
If you have important devices plugged directly into wall outlets or power strips you might be headed for trouble. Even simple file servers, cable modems and network routers benefit from having a stable electrical supply in the event of an outage.
While some battery backup systems offer things like line conditioning and extensive up times, most small businesses and private parties can get by with a backup just large enough to allow you time to shut everything down gracefully without losing any unsaved data.
Most manufacturers of backup systems will provide information about which product is right for you but you’ll want to go in with an idea what how much power you need and how long you will need it. Pick the right backup power supply and keep your important equipment safe!
