June 25, 2013 Tripp Lite

If you’re on a tight IT budget and need to justify purchasing UPS systems, here’s some information you might be interested in. Power outages and server lockups are common and costly occurrences in network environments. UPS systems with installed power management software pay for themselves by supporting servers, routers, hubs and other rack equipment through just one power outage or eliminating just one service call.

Eliminate Revenue Loss Due to Downtime

Save tens of thousands of dollars per year in potential revenue loss.

Example: servers in a rack cabinet

Power outages per year: 24 outages/year
Downtime per power outage: x 2 hours/year
Downtime per year: = 48 hours/year
Revenue loss per hour of downtime: x $50/hour
Total yearly revenue loss per server: = $2,400
Installation size: x 10 servers
Total yearly revenue loss per installation: = $24,000/installation

Eliminate Revenue Loss Due to Service Costs

Save thousands of dollars per year in potential service costs.

Example: remote rack cabinet

Service lockup per year: 5 – 10 lockups/year
Cost of service call: x $150/call
Total yearly service costs per server: = $750 – $1,500/server
Installation size: x 10 servers
Total yearly service costs per installation: = $7,500 – $15,000/installation
