Are you spending too much money on server room maintenance?

Proper server room maintenance is crucial to protect equipment and sensitive data stored and transmitted through different systems. It’s not just the room that requires maintenance; you must assess servers regularly too. Server room maintenance needs to be carried out by a specialist technician, which can be costly and time-consuming.

Server rooms are expensive and time consuming

Server room maintenance is crucial to protect your servers and to minimise the risk of downtime. While the specific needs of a data room may vary based upon the size and location of the room, how many hours each day it is in operation, as well as how much heat is generated by equipment, in most cases you should make sure you regularly check the following: 

  • cooling systems
  • power supply
  • cables
  • fire protection
  • security systems
  • servers status

And of course you also need to make sure the room is kept clean and dust free.

Generally speaking, server room maintenance should be conducted once a month and the process can take up to 4 hours with an average fee of $150 per hour, resulting in ongoing overhead costs.
