Tip of the Week: Consider Killing a Server Before it Kills Your Business

Tip of the Week: Consider Killing a Server Before it Kills Your Business

We thought we would do something a little bit different for this week’s tip. Instead of giving you some software tips or some kind of thing you can use to make your business more productive, we thought that we’d help you with the thing that you already know, but may not realize:

Server maintenance is incredibly important.

You might be thinking, “well, no duh”, but you would be surprised how many small and medium-sized business owners don’t actively manage and maintain their centralized hardware.

For any type of business that relies on onsite servers, ensuring that they are working effectively creates a degree of efficiency. When data is easily accessible and reliably secure an organization has fewer problems all the way around. Processes move efficiently, workflows aren’t interrupted, and your staff’s time, undeniably your organization’s biggest expense, is used constructively.  

If your hardware is getting on in years and there are signs that there is a major problem on the horizon, however, you have to start making some determinations that aren’t always all that welcome but aren’t necessarily dire either. At this point, you can likely still manage the hardware in a way that it won’t fail before you have a chance to move applications, storage, or processing to a new server. If you don’t address the situation, however, there is more room for risk to turn into major operational problems. Without a comprehensive plan to manage and maintain your servers you are accepting high levels of risk.

Let’s face it, you don’t exactly have a spare server in your back room, after all. Even if you did, the server in your back room isn’t the same as the one you lean on daily to help run your business. A failing server equals downtime, there’s no way around it; but it doesn’t have to get to that point.
