UPS hard lesson learned

We currently have 170 Megabytes of shared data and application files in shared storage on two servers. These electronic files are the backbone of service and administrative operations. Without adequate data security and integrity our entire organization is threatened. This was demonstrated too well when the central name server crashed. Although we backup everything each day, we lost approximately four days work in arranging substitute service, restoring the data and then integrating the work done on stand-alone units into the network. I don’t know the average daily operating cost for the clearinghouse, but the cost of those four days is likely far greater than the cost of an uninterruptable power supply (UPS).
