3 Most Important Reasons UPS Systems and Data Centers Fail [Part 1]
Did you know that it only takes a few minutes of power outage to cause serious damage to your UPS system or data center?
They both are essential to the smooth running of any business. They are also the most likely to fail. Both require constant maintenance, monitoring, and vigilance to ensure they continue operating at optimal efficiency and uptime.
However, when something goes wrong it can be catastrophic for your business. If high-voltage power breaks or a natural disaster strikes your data center, you risk losing all your company’s records in addition to taking down your servers. If there’s a surge in the UPS system that causes it to explode, you could have an entire building full of burnt computers with no way of restoring them from backup until the damage is repaired. The stresses that these systems are under are often underestimated because they don’t happen frequently.
But if you’re not ready for them when they do occur, then you could face serious consequences.
Here are 3 of the most common reasons why UPS systems and Data Centers fail so that you can avoid this fate in your own organization
1- A Lack of Ongoing Maintenance and Upgrades
It may be surprising to hear that many data centers and ups systems do not undergo routine maintenance. On average, data centers are visited by a technician once every two years. This is not enough to keep equipment in optimal working order, let alone ensure that all potential threats are detected and mitigated .
For example, a power surge might be missed for months because it doesn’t happen on a regular basis – but when it does happen, the consequences can be devastating. A lack of regular upgrades is another reason why they fail. Maintaining these systems requires significant investments of time and money – an expense which many companies are unwilling to make.
Unfortunately, this means that they run the risk of falling behind on their technology or missing out on newer security features that could have prevented an attack from occurring in the first place.
2- Overloaded Electrical Infrastructure
The second most common reason for a failure is an overloaded electrical infrastructure. This can be caused by a number of things, but it’s primarily due to the increasing strain that computer systems have been placed under from their increased use over the last few decades. Due to this increased usage, the power grid has been pushed to its breaking point and there are no more upgrades available for the system that would allow it to handle more power.
If this happens and your data center is on one side of the overloaded grid and your UPS system is on another side, then you’re in trouble. If they don’t get enough power, then they will stop functioning and all your equipment in the data center will shut down. While these types of failures happen less frequently when there is a backup UPS system or generator to take over if one fails, they can still be catastrophic when they do happen and you need to be ready for them.
3- Old and Faulty Equipment
One of the primary reasons that ups systems and data centers fail is due to old and faulty equipment. Many times, they’ve been running for so long that when something goes wrong it’s difficult to fix. If your system has components that are close to the end of their lifespan, then all it takes is one small issue for things to go wrong.
The result could be a complete shutdown of the building or even a fire if there’s a power surge. If you want to avoid this, you should ensure that any equipment in your data center has regular maintenance checks. These checks will help identify any potential issues before they get worse.
