There’s no doubt about it; IT downtime is expensive. According to some estimates, downtime costs can range from $84,000  an hour on the low end to $5 million an hour  for big organizations.
And downtime resulting from a power failure is doubly frustrating because it’s often avoidable with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) solution. That is when such solutions actually work.
The rate of power-related downtime is steadily falling. But it still occurs. And the number-one cause of power supply interruption: UPS failure. Fortunately, IT managers can do something about it.
