UPS Efficiency (Part 2): Why is it Important?
For years, the primary criteria for a UPS selection has been the Reliability of the UPS. While it's assumed that any UPS could theoretically fail, it only makes sense to select a vendor and model known to already deliver consistent and highly predictable performance.
Here at Parallel, we agree that reliability is usually the de facto deciding factor in selecting a UPS, but it is also important to STOP (in reference to the image above) and consider the importance of efficiency when selecting a UPS for your data center or other critical facility.
With rising energy costs in many parts of the country, the desire for businesses to reduce operating costs (including energy consumption), and the inability for many businesses to add more power in their facility - the need becomes mandatory, instead of just "nice to have."

Blackjack Party at Mystic Lake Casino
This year the culture committee hosted a fun and unique event at Mystic Lake Casino, where all employees got to 'try their hand' at blackjack. The evening began with "Blackjack University" where beginners had a chance to learn the rules of the game. When the games kicked off, everyone had a chance to play five hands. At the end of those five hands, whoever was left with the most chips, went on to the finals. The top five winners were rewarded with mystery prizes containing gift cards, jackets and even Wild tickets!
