For a long time, the concept of virtual reality took a backseat to other technological advances. Despite the initial excitement about virtual reality possibilities in the '90s, progress slowed for...
We understand how you feel. Why pay for network maintenance when everything seems to be running smoothly? You have other things to worry about, like your business.
But consider how devastating and time-consuming an error or an emergency crash can be to your network. Network downtime is unacceptable in your business. You can’t afford to lose days of work and have your employees unable to access their tasks. When network failures occur, you’ll be spending more time and money where you shouldn’t be instead of directly spending it on your company’s productivity.
What Can Go Wrong?
95% of network downtime is due to preventable failures. There are many things going on in your network every day that you may not know about. Even small bugs—noticeable or not—can turn into big problems if not addressed in a timely manner.
For example, perhaps your antivirus system hasn’t been updated for weeks or a hard drive array has failed. It’s possible that you won’t notice, causing major system failures in the future if these warning signs are not addressed.
As more and more companies keep the same networking system for a longer period of time, more and more companies are living with inefficient networks and are at risk for a complete network shutdown.
What Are the Benefits of Proactive Network Maintenance?
Here’s why performing proactive network maintenance is worth it:
- You’ll Save Money
Proactive network maintenance is all about future problem detection. The amount of money you’ll be paying for regular proactive maintenance is drastically less than the price related to emergencies, big network repairs, and downtime.
- You’ll Increase Your Company’s Productivity
Without maintenance, the network can become slow and difficult to use, or it can stop working altogether. With proactive maintenance, your company will be able to go throughout their workday without suffering downtime. And in return, you won’t be disappointing or inconveniencing your customers.
- You’ll Focus on Your Business
You’ll be updated and reported to about the status of your network and will always know what problems are being worked on and resolved. From there, leave the worry behind and focus on what matters most: your company.
What Should I Look For?
Good maintenance should include monitoring of networks, workstations, critical applications, switches, firewalls, servers, and databases. Monitoring these systems includes checking storage space, tracking event logs, upgrading antivirus software, removing spyware, inspecting hardware, checking backup statuses, and reviewing backup log files.
