If you are running a server room in your place of business, you are probably using some form of PDU to connect all of your servers and peripheral equipment to a centralized source of power. This is a fairly typical set up as it allows you to take full control of your entire power distribution setup; the only thing you have left to worry about is the event of a power loss.
Adding a UPS to Your PDU Can Keep Your System Running Just Long Enough
While the average UPS can only keep a system up and running for a very short period of time, you should still connect one to your PDU. By doing this, you will be able to keep your servers up just long enough for everyone using them to be able to save their work instead of losing it in the event of a complete power outage.
