Recently, we have been asked if a UPS is really necessary.
The answer, in short, is YES.
A UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply and it consists of a lead-acid battery and an inverter that will supply backup power to a computer in the event of a power failure.
The size of UPS installed will determine how long it will supply power, allowing you time to save your work and safely shut down your computer.
The other major feature of a UPS is to arrest power surges. It will add power during a brownout and absorb over-voltages as well.
If you have intermittent power spikes that wreak havoc on your PC systems, a UPS is a great idea.
