Data Warehousing and Standby Power
One of the most important assets for any company is its data and data storage facilities.  Backup power for any data center or warehouse is crucial to ensure continuous availability of data and to prevent any data loss.  A lapse in access to data in most industries can lead to revenue loss and can greatly decrease the level of customer service provided.  If company data is entirely lost, the subsequent economic effects on a company can be staggering. The following article contains information regarding the role of standby generators in an IT infrastructure as it pertains to data security and protecting network systems and other computer equipment.
Server farms need to be air cooled at all times to avoid damage to the hardware.  Backup power supplies such as diesel generators are critical in preventing losses of valuable data.
