To ensure our customers maintain this level of security and continuity we advise subscribing to our Server maintenance plan. This is the least painful and least costly way of ensuring the reliability of your server, as the maintenance procedures identify any known mitigating risks that could compromise the lifespan of your machine
Our Server Maintenance plan ensures operational continuity by the daily monitoring of server activities - such as:
Core temperature.- A server works hard and will get hot, this machine requires dedicated cooling (if a server overheats it can quickly damage the Server
Load the Operating System - starts the boot loader from a storage device (i.e. Hard disk drives, USB drives).
Updates and patches - to monitor resource usage and connection speed as if these are not current, it can compromise the systems security leaving it vulnerable to malware which will exploit these flaws.
Lifespan of components particularly their ability to manage updates, patches and new versions of software.
A server, similar to any piece of machinery or equipment, requires regular attention and maintenance, particularly as it is operating for very long periods of time. Failure, faults and damage (both intentional and unintentional) can occur and there can always be unexpected power cuts or surges that can cause damage .
A maintenance plan ensures that there are solid daily backup routines that complete properly and that the most recent copy of all critical data is stored safely off-site.
Do not wait for the damage to be done, It is a known fact that most companies who experience complete data loss (and cannot resume operations for more than ten days) are not likely to survive due to the financial losses and the impact data loss has on their company reputation.
