Danrok reviews APC's SmartUPS1000

Things like power supplies and UPS devices tend to get forgotten, they're just not sexy. They just sit there and work without requiring a second thought. It's only when things go wrong do you realise just how important they really are. Danrok takes a look at one of APC's SmartUPS 1000 UPS devices. For those who don't know, a UPS is designed to provide a constant supply of clean mains supply to your computer (or plasma TV). They can ride out gitches and spikes in the power supply, and keep your machine running for a limited time even during a brownout or a blackout!

Very useful if you are a sys admin and have to look after say 100 UPS. You can check the health of them all across the LAN.
