A DIY Micro Data Centre

 

COVID-19 has impacted lives and businesses all over the world. We've all had to adjust, pivot, and in some cases re-invent the way we work. Businesses are transitioning to be more self-sufficient, to rely on local staff and resources, to limit travel, and to minimise contact with external personnel. With a large number of people still working from home, many companies have been struggling with IT issues, especially when it comes to servers and data centres. 

Looking after your data

Lockdowns and travel restrictions have created many IT challenges.

  • If you're in the process of building or planning a server room you will experience severe delays due to specialist personnel being unable to travel freely and with delays in shipping and deliveries of IT components.
  • If your server room or data center has a malfunction or if you're the victim of a cyber attack, you will probably face longer than usual downtime if your IT personnel is working from home. Not only it will take longer to fix the issue, but in many cases it will be impossible to identify the problem until the technician is able to travel to the server's location.
  • If your servers are due for a check up, your IT specialists may be unable to perform maintenance if they are working from home or in a lockdown. Many non-urgent tasks have been delayed as they are deemed to be non-critical however regular check ups are the best way to prevent issues. 
  • Monitoring your servers will be even harder if they are in different locations, especially if they are in countries that are badly affected by the pandemic with prolonged travel restrictions and quarantine protocols.
