Why a Neat Server Room is Important

  1. Ease of Access – When your servers go down, you probably want to get them back up as fast as possible and get back to business. If cords and unused pieces of equipment are all over the floor, how are you supposed to get to the issue. Also, how will you know which cord goes where? Labeling and tying cords together, something a structured cabling service can handle for you, makes finding which cords correlate to each system or server simple and quick.
  2. Fire Hazard – Technology gets hot as it is used for long periods of time. When more and more of these pieces of equipment are put together, their heat is multiplied. And when you add in other factors like air flow constrictions, stacked equipment, and human error you are given the possibility of a fire hazard. To help prevent fires, get rid of unnecessary equipment if there is any and make sure to avoid stacking.
  3. Equipment Wear & Tear – As with all pieces of equipment, you’re going to to lose a significant amount of lifetime through wear and tear. Keep the area cool with fans and as mentioned above, stack equipment correctly. If you’re not sure how a server room’s equipment is supposed to be stacked, maybe it’s time to call in a professional cabling network company to help.
