The real cost of not having battery backups for all of your IT equipment is hard to calculate. If the power blinks and causes Suzy's computer to shut off, and she spent half a day working on that spreadsheet, you can see that cost. If the same power blink was to cause the network to drop, and multiple team members lost connection to the server, what does their downtime and data loss cost? The fact is, all IT equipment including servers, network equipment, and workstations should be on battery backup.
Hard power offs are also damaging to equipment, which can reduce its usable lifespan or cause intermittent or immediate failure. The Oklahoma City power grid is not perfect. It is not a matter of if the power goes out, but when. Aspire Business Solutions speaks from years of consulting experience for our Oklahoma City clients to say, you need battery backups today.
