UPS: A Primer - Free Report


Forester Media

Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) technology is undergoing continual change and improvement as IT managers struggle to cover ever-increasing data demands while working to control mounting energy expenses.

A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system, or a standby generator, because it provides near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions by supplying energy stored in batteries, supercapacitors, or flywheels. The on-battery runtime of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (only a few minutes) but sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment.

Recognizing the growing need for energy storage solutions, Forester Media has written this primer to show you the basics, including systems, practices, and equipment—to make it easier to determine which product is right for your application.

When you read UPS: A Primer you will:

  • Discover how unplanned outages can cost organizations up to $7,908 per minute
  • Understand why major grid outages have increased over the last decade
  • Know the differences between offline and online UPS systems
  • Ensure you make the correct choice in UPS for your specific needs
