What should you consider when devising a standby power strategy?

A standby power system is essential if you want to ensure your business continues to operate in the event of a mains failure. To create your standby power strategy, you need to understand how a power failure will affect all areas of your business. For example, to a small business, a power failure could be nothing more than an inconvenience. But for a data centre, it can cost thousands of pounds and have a negative impact on the company’s brand. Your standby power strategy should cover all your computer rooms, servers and communications equipment. Think about: • Telephones • Emergency lighting • Fire protection • Access control • Cooling for computer rooms and servers • Auxiliary power for the building’s lifts
