UPS as a Service

UPS as a Service from DMD Data SystemsHate avoidable downtime?

You may be dropping the ball right now and not even know it.


Your UPS’s smooth out power dips and surges and provide backup power until the generator can kick in. UPS’s can extend the life of your IT systems, but maybe even more importantly, they help prevent costly downtime for your company. According to Eaton, losing power for as little as a quarter of a second can start a chain of events which may result in downtime from fifteen minutes to several hours or more.

Are your UPS’s getting the attention they require?

UPS’s are frequently overlooked. They can last for years if properly maintained, but they aren’t maintenance-free. Their batteries, fans, and electrolytic capacitors must be serviced regularly. After enduring brutal power spikes and surges to protect your infrastructure, damage to the UPS’s filter/rectifier side must be repaired before they are able to fulfill that role again.

IT staff typically have so much on their to-do lists that UPS care gets put off. This is especially true for remote offices. Assessing, servicing, and replacing UPS’s in branch and remote offices is a big job.

UPS as a Service from DMD Data Systems saves downtime, while saving time and money.

Keeping UPS devices in continuous proper working order helps to prevent downtime and the costs associated with that downtime. With UPS as a Service, the engineers at DMD Data Systems assess, maintain, refresh, test, calibrate, and monitor UPS devices for main data center and for branch office locations.

Software defined power management reduces UPS costs.

UPS as a Service from DMD Data Systems is powered by Eaton UPS devices and their award-winning Intelligent Power Management platform. In the event of a power outage, policy-driven automated load shedding safely shuts down unnecessary systems. This prolongs the availability of mission-critical systems for as long as possible, reducing the UPS equipment needed to achieve the same level of protection.  Your UPS as a Service units take up less rack space and consume less power.

UPS as a Service Turns Capital Expenses into Operating Expenses for budgetary ease.

The cost of a large-scale UPS rollout include purchasing the units, travel costs, power management software costs, and training costs. This adds up to a big expense and takes a lot of your IT staff’s time. Instead of handling this project in-house, the next time you need to do a UPS refresh consider DMD’s UPS as a Service. In place of large capital expenses, your organization can pay an affordable monthly fee per device. Rates start at $50 per month per 1500 Kva UPS and $75 per month per 2500 Kva UPS for a 3-year contract term. Rates include hardware, battery, and monitoring.
