Six weeks since the TSB crisis and new research from business continuity and disaster recovery provider, Databarracks, has revealed that 85 per cent of organisations say they would struggle to survive if there was a loss of mission critical IT systems for longer than a month.
There have been many rumblings of late that centre around the demise of traditional standalone UPS systems and the market longevity of these. It is undeniable that the market is saturated when it comes to centralised UPS. Technology seems to have plateaued and the performance delivered from different manufacturers has become fairly ubiquitous. This has meant that manufacturers are now having to compete on cost and subsequently, judging from the latest industry figures, are making less profit.
With recent research from Centrica stating that 33% of energy decision-makers believe their organisation is not prepared for a disruption to their energy supply from a temporary grid failure, Crestchic is calling for more attention to be paid to the role loadbanks play in energy resilience strategies.
