Could The Dog Days Of Summer Be A Threat To Your Business?

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

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