3 Advantages of Using a UPS Backup Battery

Why Use a UPS Backup Battery? Infinite Systems Has 3 Key Advantages!

Interested in supporting your electronic devices no matter the weather or your working conditions? Then a UPS backup battery is the equipment you need! As Powertron Battery Co. puts it, “A UPS or an uninterruptible power supply is a small device that is connected between your computer and the outlet providing you with power. Its job is simple: to receive power and transmit it to your computer.”  As a company that provides TOTAL support for computers, networks, and servers, we think a UPS backup battery is worth the investment! 

Here Are 3 Reasons Why Your Office Needs a UPS: 

1. Protection From Outages 

When storms come rolling in or your electrical company sees unexpected outages, it’s crucial to have a backup plan so that you can continue using your computer without a hitch. A UPS offers a power source that will operate straight through a short, unexpected blackout, plus help prepare for a longer one!

2. Keeps Your Electronics Safe

A fluctuation in power, such as a surge or lightning strike, can damage equipment. Since power surges put pressure on an electrical device’s wires, they could potentially overheat your computer and give you a major headache. You can help avoid this with a UPS backup battery because it creates a kind of filtering system between any fluctuations in power and your device!

3. Helps Prevent Lost Information 

Since so much of our work is digital, it’s imperative that you don’t leave your work to chance and risk losing important documents during an outage or power surge. A UPS gives you time to save and close your work during a power incident. Ready to protect your computer against unexpected outages? Call Infinite Systems today to equip your office or home office with a UPS backup!

Keep it Clean: 3 Tips for a Cleaner Server Room

Why a clean server room makes all our jobs easier

In our daily routine as Systems Admins, we’ve seen it all when it comes to server rooms. We use the following three steps in order to keep our client’s server rooms clean and our services running efficiently.

1. Keep Cords Untangled to Avoid a Service Nightmare! 

DataSpan’s article on server room cleaning states, “power lines cause interference with network lines – prevent this by bunching like cables with ties.”

Tangled cables make it difficult to troubleshoot or replace equipment. By keeping cords tidy, we are able to quickly identify problems and fix them, thus reducing downtime and offering our clients the best possible service! 

2. Remove Dust and Dirt 

We don’t let the dust settle in our homes, so why would we let it settle in our server room?  We keep the area clean in order to prevent any data center downtime because even a single outage can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. 

3. Regulate Heat and Humidity 

Proper placement and spacing of your server rack and environment help prevent dangerous fluctuations in temperature. The more stable the temperate, the better systems can operate and perform services like email, data backup, and disaster recovery. 

Check out our awesome before and after pictures to see just how much we value a clean server room, and reach out to us if you have any questions about our services or want to schedule a meeting with us!

Why Managed IT Services Help Your Business

How managed service providers revolutionize the efficiency and effectiveness of your company.

Ready to free up the time of your IT team?

Time is one of your company’s most precious assets. So the last thing you want is to waste your employee’s time and energy on projects more suited to an outside party.  According to BizTech Magazine, making the switch to a 3rd party IT service can “cut IT costs by as much as 40 percent while doubling operational efficiency.” Rather than managing every step of the process yourself, managed IT professionals can streamline your daily operations. Beyond that, we love these additional benefits listed in BizTech’s article on the subject: 

  1. Freeing up IT staff time
  2. Keeping up with ever-changing IT advancements 
  3. Flexible scalability within your organization
