Data loss due to power outages is a huge risk for PC users both at home and for business.
In the US alone, businesses have lost billions of dollars worth of data due to power outages, and those studies don’t take into account personal data loss like family pictures and videos.
Hence it’s important for anyone to invest in a UPS backup power solution.
UPS, which stands for uninterruptible power supply, are like emergency power generators for computers and various electrical equipment. They’re mainly used to protect hardware where an unexpected power disruption could cause data loss, business disruption and even health hazards.
One of the most reliable brands in providing affordable UPS solutions for consumers and small businesses is APC (American Power Conversion). These products can be purchased at Concepts Computer, which have been carrying the APC brand at its stores for many years.
Starting today, Concepts Computer and Schneider Electric, the manufacturer and distributor of APC products, are offering promotions for new APC UPS models that have just arrived in Brunei, the APC BX650 and the APC BX1100.

Both new models from APC are made to be as user friendly as possible; each has a push-button circuit breaker for easy recovery from an overload or short circuit, and there are notification systems which consist of LED status displays and audible alarms.
And with the included software, users can set notifications through their PCs and get notified by email or through their smartphone in real time.
