Why is it Important to Keep Your Server Room Clean?

  1. Ease of Access – When your servers go down, you need to get them back up as soon as possible. We’ve all heard the adage time is money, and there’s truth in that. Any time spent down is money lost. If you have cords and unused pieces of equipment lying around, how can you find out what’s wrong? By labeling and tying cords together, something a Maryland fiber installation company can do for you, you can ensure that you know exactly what every cord in your server room does.
  2. Fire Hazard – Nearly all electronics get hot when they’re used for extensive periods of time, and this holds for your servers too. When you have multiple server units stacked next to one another, this heat is amplified. This, when combined with other factors like lack of airflow and human error, can create a fire hazard. To help prevent fires, you need to remove any unnecessary equipment.
  3. Equipment Wear and Tear – Just as with any piece of equipment, as you use them more and more, your servers can wear down over time. To reduce this wear and tear you should keep the area cool with fans. You should also make sure that your servers are stacked correctly. If you need help figuring out how to properly stack them, get some help from a Maryland fiber installation company.
