Preventative Maintenance

Problems can occur with computer equipment that are beyond your control, however, others can be addressed by taking action and controlling the environment through preventative maintenance.

More hardware manufacturers are now insisting that environments in which their equipment is kept is maintained to a high level of cleanliness, by including conditions within their OEM warranties.

Static / Particle contamination can:

  • cause hardware to retain heat
  • make components wear unnecessarily
  • instigate hardware failure
  • clog fans & filters
  • increase power consumption

  • Reduced operating costs
  • Increased productivity

Consequences of Downtime

Any unscheduled downtime can potentially have a serious effect on your business: causing major inconvenience, cost of repair, and the potential loss of revenue. Consider the following:

  1. If your website or payment processing system went down, how much revenue would you lose per hour of downtime?
  2. How much revenue would be lost if your employees couldn't work at full capactiy because a critical system was unavailable?
  3. What if a system outage meant you couldn't meet service-level-agreements (SLAs) to your customers or partners?
  4. How would your company's reputation be affected if your critical IT systems were unavailable for more than a few hours?
