Could The Dog Days Of Summer Be A Threat To Your Professional Services Firm Or Business?

How To Ensure The Heat Doesn’t Fry Your Server
(And Your Profits!)

With the “dog days” of summer upon us, most professional services firm equity principals, partners and directors are looking for ways to keep their firm’s sales of services and profits HOT, while keeping their IT expenses COOL. But if proper attention is not given to your server and network equipment during the summer, all that heat outside can actually bring your firm’s growth to a grinding halt and increase your IT expenses significantly.
Excess heat can be a big problem for small to mid-sized business servers, since a server that becomes overheated usually costs more in energy, fails more often and is more likely to crash. For most firms or companies, a server crash can mean hours, days or weeks of downtime, unproductive employees, HUGE amounts of stress and tens of thousands of dollars in lost opportunity.

7 Steps Every Equity Principal, Partner, Director Or Practice Manager Must Take To Prevent a Heat-Induced Server Crash

Here are a few simple things you can do to prevent your server and network equipment from overheating and crashing this summer:

  1. Tidy up the server room; a neater room will increase airflow.
  2. Keep the doors to the server room closed and seal off the space.
  3. Make sure cold air reaches all the equipment.
  4. Have a redundant A/C unit that is specifically designed for computers.
  5. Buy a rack enclosure where the cooling is built into the bottom of the rack.
  6. Keep the temperature at no more than 25 degrees Celsius, ideally it should be 22 degrees Celsius.
  7. Consider virtualisation or cloud computing so that you are generating a lower amount of heat in the first place.
