Include surge suppression in power protection designs

In reviewing the array of power protection options, those responsible often think in terms of products rather than holistic solutions. While that may seem like the easy approach up front — just buy a big uninterruptible power supply and be done with it — most users find that a bit more analysis in the beginning yields optimized equipment protection and better addresses the full spectrum of power problems. Of course a large, centralized UPS system from a quality vendor will provide excellent protection against the widest range of power disturbances for any connected equipment. This is especially true in data centers and other high-density computing or communications environments.
