Get Out of the Closet
Get out of the closet!
Computer hardware is expensive, and unexpected downtime is incredibly frustrating. If you want to extend the life of your equipment and avoid sudden meltdown, make sure your server closet is set up correctly.
When you enter into your company server or website, you are accessing a highly powerful network. If you journey to the center of that network, you would most likely find either a data center or a server closet.
The data center is a facility used specifically to home servers that transfer data worldwide. If you were to step into a data center the first thing that would catch your attention is the noise. The whirring of server fans regulating airflow, and the vast consumption of energy supplying power to host millions of businesses data. These aisles of racks, full of servers, are making businesses tons of money. Each time they transfer data to lead normal everyday business ventures.
Now let’s take a step into the server room. That little closet that was sitting unused where you decided to place a big pile of cash, otherwise known as your company’s servers. As you open the door with as little security as a door lock, a blast of heat hits you. This disaster closet housing your servers is not only hot, but also highly unventilated. The danger of almost tripping on one of the chords from the very large mess of cabling on the floor catches your eye next. Next you see one overloaded power strip, without surge protection that is powering all of the servers.
Benefits Of Using A Data Center
It is time to get the core of your business out of the coat closet and into a data center. Data Centers are the only place that gives you full peace-of-mind, allowing you to sleep at night. A data center is an entire building devoted solely to housing servers. Why are you risking the livelihood of your business to spilled coffee, your internet going down, power outage, a blown fuse or costly power consumption? A data center can provide everything you need.
Who can access your server?
Our data center provides high security including alarms, surveillance monitoring, and door control.
Are you running off just street power? What if a power failure or natural disaster occur and cause a power outage?
Our data center has a diesel generator on site. The power can be out for days, and generator allows the data center to still be running.
Is the server in a high-risk environment?
Our data center is built specifically for servers, unlike your company office. Our data centers is built with redundancy, backup power supplies, air conditioning and dustless fire suppression. Dustless fire suppression will sense a fire and discharge dry chemicals on the source of the fire. When dry chemicals are used, versus water, so the equipment your data resides on does not get ruined.
The cost of running your own infrastructure in a closet is much higher. In the long run if you place your server in a data center, you are saving money. You are paying for employees, physical security measures, and the power to cool the room and operate the server equipment, with your own sever. With a data center you pay one monthly fee.
Stop running servers on premise and place them where they are meant to be, in a data center. Collocate to neGma today!
