The Financial Post, one of
Financial Post Finance and Administration Manager Geoffrey Murage says: "We implemented the APC UPSes in 2004 and have reaped the benefits since then. Prior to the implementation we had lost five CPUs and two monitors due to power outages?The 17,500 kVA Back-UPS units each protect our monitors and CPUs and make the most impact when our editorial team are operating under tight deadlines and cannot risk data loss."
Carl Kleynhans, Country General Manager: Africa for APC, says that companies worldwide are realising that as they become increasingly dependent on technology in order to guarantee business growth and profit, the need to keep their IT systems running at all times is paramount: "Of the many factors that limit the ability of a system to achieve a high level of performance, the reliability of power is a very real barrier. Today's demand for clean, consistent power for sensitive electronics cannot be supplied by utilities, so businesses, like the Financial Post, have to accept responsibility for the safe operation of their equipment."
The Back-UPS unit provides professional-grade power protection for office and home office systems. Battery-powered and surge-protected power outlets, built-in phone/fax/modem line (DSL compatible) protection, safe system shutdown software with sophisticated power management features, as well as pro-active audio-visual status indicators, ensure office systems and their valuable data are protected from dangerous power surges, spikes and blackouts. The APC Back-UPS units, purchased from Bloomerg, were installed over a two-week period.
