Loss of Programs/Data - Environmental Solutions

When a momentary power interruption occurs in the home office, the loss of data or information can be frustrating and costly. In most instances the value of the information in a computer is far greater than the cost required to prevent its loss.

The only device that will prevent computer operation interruptions in the home office is a Stand-By Power Supply or "under the desk" battery back-up unit. These units will usually provide for continuous computer operation during short interruptions lasting from a second to as much as a quarter of an hour.

Stand-By Power supplies for the home office are small, and can be purchased at most computer, hardware, or office supply stores at a cost of between two hundred and four hundred dollars. Any knowledgeable computer store sales clerk should be able to help you select the size of SPS required to support your computer
