The use of a UPS in a NAS deployment is critical to prevent data loss in the event of a power outage that might occur during a data transfer. This is especially important for NAS devices that implement solid state drives as their storage medium as data loss can occur not only during an outage, but can happen during brownouts and power fluctuations. A UPS will power the system long enough to complete transfers, and then allow the system to be safely shutdown to prevent data loss.
