An Ounce of Prevention (or a UPS) is Worth a Pound of Cure

Power. There’s no shortage of those who crave it: in their jobs, their cars, their yard equipment, their computers, their life. It’s synonymous with respect, control and success. It also happens to be the very thing that keeps almost every business inbusiness. It’s hard to keep the lights on or an IT infrastructure up and running without a constant power supply, whether that’s straight from the outlet or the battery inside of your laptop, phone, or wireless mouse. And as much as we’d like to think that the power that we enjoy is limitless, stable and predictable, we know that bad things happen, most typically at the most inopportune times: when there’s a critical deadline, an important meeting or a crucial customer interaction. So, when life gets you down, grab a UPS.

A UPS (uninterrupted power supply) is a vital piece of equipment for any company to avoid downtime for their business in two ways. First, a UPS helps keep all critical systems up and running in case of an outage, a power bump, or any other energy disruption. Second, a UPS levels out the power coming in to eliminate damage to IT resources that can bring productivity to a grinding halt.

Because of the importance of a UPS to any IT infrastructure, we’ve taken steps to become the only Eaton Certified PowerAdvantage partner in eastern Washington. Eaton provides continuous power and protection to businesses of any size. Their remote monitoring technology allows problems to be identified before they happen and to take measures to eliminate downtime. Eaton has been involved in power management for over a century and we’re proud to work with them and some of the best products in the industry.

If you don’t have a UPS for your business, get one. If you’ve already got one, make sure it still holds a charge. A typical UPS is under warranty for three years, and even if you replace the battery yourself after that time, the equipment can get outdated and wear out. You’re better off replacing them with new, more efficient hardware. Don’t let your day’s work, your server, or your entire business suffer from an inefficient energy source.

By Byron Martin | May 22, 2020

Identity theft continues to be a problem in the US. In 2018, 14.4 million people were victims of identity theft. That’s 4 out of every 100 people.
