Re: Hurricane damage to office, need advice on battery backup
Standby generators and UPSs are not mutually exclusive. Each serve different purposes in a server environment. The UPSs, if chosen, installed, and maintained wisely, can provide no lost time conditions during electrical power outages, sags, or other short term situations to critical servers and other devices. The standby generators can get you through the longer periods of no regular electricity service. A well designed, maintained, and operated system that utilizes both sources in an integrated way can provide almost seamless transitions among different sources of electrical power.
