It is sometimes unclear which are the key functions of the UPS system and generator in crucial power protection schemes. Furthermore, lithium-ion batteries can turn uninterruptible electric supplies into energy storage systems. How do UPS generators differ?

What is a UPS battery?

A device powered by a battery provides a backup power supply to help when there is a power outage. An uninterruptible power supply or UPS is offered in various sizes. In some cases, small UPS systems can be used for backup for just minutes that can shut down the computer and recover the data, while larger systems use batteries that will run various electrical systems for a few hours at the same time.

We recommend using an electrical power supply without interruption for mains power supply failures or for hardware failures. If power fails, the battery is taken up as the primary power source. A power supply battery is designed in such a way that it is possible to provide high currents over short periods. Hence when determining which UPS battery you will use, you must follow several parameters.

Uninterruptible power backup

Uninterruptible electricity sources help in cases of power outages. UPS has three types: online, interactive, offline, and a standing call service. 

Line-based or offline equipment provides supplemental battery power when mains electricity fails or fluctuates outside of predetermined limits. The UPS may contain spike filtering with electrical noise filtering, and the interconnection UPS will include automatic voltage stabilisers. The stabilising voltage elements may be electronic and tap change transformers and help to reduce brownouts and surges at the main electrical supply.

Choosing the right UPS battery

UPS batteries are essential to an Uninterruptible Electricity Supply (UPS) and are selected carefully, as they are important for preventing electricity interruptions. If you want to upgrade an existing Dell or Belkin UPS Battery, we will show you what it means, and our experts will be able to explain it to help you decide!

A generator may have a transfer switch

When you think generators are adequate, in the event of power failure, think again. Generators typically use a transfer switch that powers computers, lighting, interior lighting, or other crucial electrical circuitry in the building. A power converter switches to power supply a box that looks like a power outlet on either end of a building. You can plug the generator into a power supply in case of power failure. Ensure that the switch to “off” is enabled for this operation. So start the generator and temporarily recharge the critical circuit.

A UPS protects against power surges

A UPS provides backup power and can identify and solve energy-related issues, power grid malfunctions, and various other unstable factors in power supply. Similarly, a UPS would be an excellent solution to protect computer equipment from power failures.

Origin has launched their own UPS batteries

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be introducing a range of Origin Storage UPS batteries alongside our storage, memory, security, networking and accessories product ranges. 

Our batteries will be plug and play, meaning that they can be used straight out of the box and are easy to install – there’s no complicated assembly process required. The components of the UPSs are 100% compatible with OEM brands, and no refurbished parts are used; all components are brand new.

NVMe’s have made the limitations of SATA protocol more and more apparent as new and emergent technology arrives on the tech market. NVMe SSDs are trailblazing their way into the front and centre of the public eye. By connecting directly to the servers CPUs through the PCI express interface bus, they bypass entirely the host bus adapters (HBAs) that SATA drives require. 

Are NVMe’s the future?

With the way things are heading, it is predicted that NVMe adoption will grow by 91% by the end of 2023. NVMe is the storage technology you want for your current or next PC. The continued evolvement of the NVMe standard means that, as well as the present version 1.31, new features such as the ability to use your computer’s system memory as a cache. 

The NVMe SSD inside the latest Macbook Pro reads and writes data four times faster than the SATA SSD’s found in the previous generations and seeks out information ten times as fast. Meaning you are not left staring blankly at that annoying spinning circle that often accompanies a loading page. NVMe’s should be a priority and should be actively sought out, not an add on or an afterthought when choosing a new or upgraded PC. 

Not that you often need perpetuated output like this, but NVMe does short work of transferring files of any size. Compared to the rate offered by HDD’s 200MBps, and SATA SSD’s 550MBps, the NVMe SSD’s offer 3GBps in most business machines with their gaming counterparts now exceeding 7GBps.

Pro’s and Con’s of NVMe’s

The benefits of NVMe SSD include the following: NVMe SSD’s work with all major operating systems, giving the option of improved storage to many people and businesses without drastic changes to current operating systems. NVMe supports tunnelling protocol, so data privacy concerns are addressed and dealt with. It also supports a much higher bandwidth than SATA and offers superior compatibility with the system CPU. 

NVMe’s may sound current like the be all or end all of the technology, but they are not without disadvantages. NVMe costs more than your standard 2.5 SSD devices, and any older systems do not support legacy NVMe. But these do not seem to be deal-breakers to us on why NVMe’s should be your choice when thinking about upgrading or replacing your system.  

Growth within the NVMe Market

The NVMe market is projected to grow from $44.6b in 2020 to $163.5b by 2025. The major factors included in the market are due to the increasing adoption of NVMe technologies in SSD’s, servers and storage applications. The evolving demand for data storage and exponential use in data generation. This escalation in data needed lends itself to all aspects of the technological world, such as higher quality gaming PCs. NVMe’s also offer significant performance advancements and processing infrastructure. 

It is projected that NVMe SSD’s will hold the largest share in the NVMe market during the forecast period. They have the largest market since they are adopted widely as a storage solution in most verticals. 

When introduced into the market, SSD’s were marketed as a storage device that provides faster read and writes operations and reduced latency compared to HDD’s. SSD’s hold the highest share of the non-volatile memory express market. 

North America held the largest size of the NVMe market in 2019. They have the largest share of the market, closely followed by Europe and APAC. The key players in the market are Samsung, Western Digital, Intel, Dell, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Intel is currently a leading player across the global NVMe market.

The SSD sector has a massive opportunity for growth in the face of this NVMe surge. The BSFI vertical is among the largest adopter of the NVMe market. The increasing application of next-generation technologies such as AI, machine learning etc., means that the need to process data at a very high rate is moving more and more to the forefront, which presents a very lucrative market opportunity for new entrants into the NVMe market. 

Data-centric storage and computing tasks have led to significant demand for higher data read and write performance. The adoption of SATA is rapidly declining as the NVMe protocol replaces it.

The climate crisis has been pushed to the forefront of the public eye. People are making environmentally-friendly changes in their everyday lives, changing from single-use plastics to more permanent and sustainable solutions, such as beeswax paper, re-usable cotton buds or cotton rounds. According to statista.com, the volume of household waste collected by local authorities in England was 23 million metric tonnes in the 2019/2020 financial year.

Why eco-friendly changes are necessary

The technological industry is under pressure to reduce waste and emissions. In 2016, the global greenhouse gas released was at an average of 49.4 tonnes CO2 eq. However, researchers have recently claimed that previous calculations of ICT’s share of global greenhouse emissions, […], likely fall short of the sector’s real climate impact as they only show a partial picture.

In the UK alone, Commercial and Industrial (C&I) waste accounted for almost a fifth (19%) of total waste generation in 2018, with electrical and electronic equipment accounting for just over 250,000 metric tonnes of waste. Nevertheless, the recycling rate of electrical and electronic waste did increase by nearly 25% to a total of 67% overall.

Although the UK has seen this rate continue to increase, drastic changes need to be made worldwide. Big-name companies such as Apple have started to lead the way, already promising to reduce emissions by 2025.

Why you should choose upgrades instead of a new system

Smaller companies looking to cut back can still do their part to help. Origin Storage is fully stocked with trustworthy parts that are fully compatible across multiple systems and won’t invalidate your OEM warranty.

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that allows a computer to keep running when the primary power source is lost, protecting from power cuts. When the mains power supply stops, the UPS battery is activated, giving device users time to save their work and shut their device down correctly.

What are the advantages of UPS batteries?

When a UPS battery is activated, there is no delay between switching from the primary power source to the battery, meaning devices will continue running as usual. If a UPS battery is activated, users will have a couple of minutes to save their vital files and safely shut the device down properly. 

Furthermore, UPS batteries protect devices against power surges and unexpected power cuts. Without a proper shutdown sequence, devices can become damaged. A sudden loss of electricity will interrupt this vital sequence and may leave processes half-finished, which could lead to corrupted files and damage to the operating system. With the risk of power cuts increasing over winter, UPS batteries should be considered to ensure devices are not damaged.

UPS batteries are also favourable to devices such as generators, as generators do not continue running seamlessly when the primary power source is lost. If your main concern is the risk of data loss or corruption, a UPS battery is a fitting solution. 

Plug and Play UPS Batteries by Origin Storage

Origin Storage Plug and Play UPS Batteries offer quality, performance and compatibility. There is no assembly required; the batteries are ready to go straight out of the box.

To understand why NVMe products are in demand, we must first understand its origins. Legacy interfaces between the processor and storage device did not take into account performance-orientated storage such as flash. Interfaces were originally designed to work with hard disk drives (HDDs), which were relatively slow and did not require high-performance circuits. As a result, there was a bottleneck period with storage. 

The solution is born

In March 2011, the NVMe specifications were developed by the NVM Express Workgroup, which consisted of more than 90 companies. Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) enables the communication between the processor and the storage device to occur quickly. It took some time for NVMe to emerge in the market, but it is now common technology. In 2020, the global NVMe market was valued at approximately $44.6 billion and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.7%, leading to a valuation of $163.5 billion by 2025. The major driving factors of the market include increased adoption of NVMe technologies in SSDs, servers, and in storage. 

NVMe was designed to take advantage of flash capability, and it provides a performance upgrade compared to SATA interfaces, for example. SATA interfaces are compatible with hard disk performance, but it is not enough to support flash performance.

What are the main benefits of NVMe?

The design of NVMe offers numerous advantages over other interfaces. NVMe has lower IO latency because of improved drivers, allowing for an increase in the number of queues and commands in a queue. NVMe technology has lower CPU overhead with handling IO, allowing for more cycles by other computations. It also has improved bandwidth and takes advantage of fast PCIe interfaces. 

Origin Storage NVMe

Additionally, the Origin Storage Inception TLC830 Pro Series 256GB NVMe is 100% compatible as a replacement or upgrade for storage solutions. Also, the device will not invalidate OEM warranty.

The future of NVMe Storage

The migration to SSDs using flash as the primary storage device is a major break from the prior dominance of rotating devices. The NVMe architecture that is specifically designed to support SSDs, and future technologies that are currently being developed, has a very bright future. Flash storage allows the creation of new, innovative technologies that will enable processors to become even more powerful following Moore’s Law.

Unfortunately, the parts shortage which has been happening since the beginning of 2020 is still with us and is likely to be with us for some time. 

Nvidia’s CFO Colette Kress explained that the company expects demand to “continue to exceed supply for much of this year”. Similarly, chip manufacturer TSMC, who makes processors for Apple, Qualcomm, and AMD, has warned that shortages could continue into 2022. Intel’s chief executive, Pat Gelsinger, says the worst is yet to come and that we may have to wait a year or two until supplies return to normal. Glenn O’Donnell, a vice president research director at Forrester, believes the shortage could last until 2023. The general consensus is that the world will have to grapple with the crisis for longer yet.

The semiconductor shortage, what some are calling “chipageddon”, has affected a variety of industries. Manufacturers of graphics cards, kitchen appliances, phones, cars, computers, and games consoles struggle to get a hold of semiconductors essential to electronic devices. You can learn more about the origins of the semiconductor shortage here

Chipageddon continues

“Chipageddon” is a result of a variety of factors. Coronavirus lockdowns in China caused production to reduce significantly for a period of months at a time when demand for everything that kept us entertained during lockdowns, such as TVs, games consoles, phones, and other electronics, skyrocketed. It is the perfect storm, and it’s meant that prices of electronics have increased, and almost everyone will be affected by it in some way, shape, or form. 

Parts

Stockpiling and new cryptocurrency increase demand

The situation shows no signs of abating just yet. Stockpiling has made the situation worse for firms that are struggling to get hold of precious chips. Some Chinese companies which have been affected by sanctions have taken to stockpiling in-demand chips in an attempt to ride out the crisis, intensifying the crisis for companies all over the world.

Stockpiling isn’t the only thing causing significant increases in demand. The cryptocurrency Chia, which was launched in May of this year, caused SSD demand to skyrocket. Chia relies on storage rather than processing performance to mine, and crypto-fanatics were keen to buy up huge amounts of storage to mine the cryptocurrency. 

Manufacturers desperately search for a solution

Chipageddon is causing chaos for industries all over the world, and the leading semiconductor manufacturers are working hard to improve the supply of products. For example, The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., one of the leading advanced semiconductor suppliers, is planning to spend approximately $100 billion over the next three years to increase its capacity to meet demand.
