There is a risk of data loss if companies do not have Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to protect them against mains power outage.

This was highlighted by the Datec (Fiji), general manager, Ateen Kumar, in an interview with the Fiji Sun.

UPS is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails.

“As for surge protectors- I think all major corporates that have data centres, need to invest to ensure they protect their ICT investments that depend on a stable source of electric power,” Mr Kumar said.

“All Businesses need to ensure that we have some sort of safeguard against power cuts.

“These UPS’s are required to ensure that their systems are continuously running.”

Datec, in conjunction with Eaton (NZ), on Wednesday hosted an Eaton logo event highlighting some of the latest products in their Surge Protection & UPS portfolio relevant for Fiji market.

Mr Kumar said if you don’t have a UPS then there will be an improper shut down of a system and most systems cannot tolerate an improper shutdown.

He said that Datec has 60-plus customers for UPS currently.

 

Eaton- a supplier of Datec

Eaton was formerly known as Sola which was later acquired by Invensys briefly and then Powerware.

Eventually Powerware was acquired by Eaton Corporation.

Eaton is a diversified industrial manufacturer and a market leader in various industrial products.

Datec and Eaton partnership started in 1997 and evolved to be stronger over the 20 years.

 

Datec in the Market

What makes Datec stand out in the market today is their commitment to customers and quality.

Datec has four factory trained technical personnel on Eaton products. Datec has the most number of years of experience in configuration, installation and implementation of large 3-phase systems – up to 100kva.

About 70 per cent of large three-phase systems in Fiji are Eaton/Powerware branded which were supplied and are maintained by Datec.

And not only in Fiji, Datec also has experience in coordinating and implementing three-phase systems in the Pacific Island Nations (PINs)
