In today’s world, electricity is almost ubiquitous. Therefore, we take it for granted, treating it as if it were something natural. Many times we do not notice its role, at least until we run out of it.
A power outage is always a disappointment, but it becomes much more serious when it affects a business. In such a situation, power shortages not only cause discomfort, but can contribute to downtimes that generate financial losses or cause customer dissatisfaction.
Continuity of IT infrastructure – a key issue for a company
If a company lacks proper energy safeguards, a power outage can have severe consequences. In the absence of power, servers, storage arrays and network devices shut down, IT systems stop working, and access to data stored becomes impossible. As a result, electronic mail, the entire internal corporate network and applications responsible for project execution, financial settlements or customer service do not work.
Many companies use IT systems that run on the Internet. They allow customers to register, purchase products, use additional services or get in touch with the company. However, an inactive service can, unfortunately, cause a potential customer to abandon our offer and leave for a competitor.
In addition, any amount of time spent by employees unable to perform their duties is considered unproductive for the company. If the outage is prolonged, the company may not be able to meet its obligations in a timely manner.
Threats to business continuity of IT systems
Even a relatively short outage can deprive a company of customers. A variety of random events, such as adverse weather conditions, or faults and repairs to power grids, for instance, disrupt power plant operations and interrupt the continuity of IT infrastructure.
There is also the risk of more serious problems. After all, we live in very uncertain times and the outbreak of geopolitical or environmental threats seems highly likely. Any of these can make it impossible for a company to function.
