Oak City IT Tech Shorts 01: Server Downtime Costs

Do you know how much your server downtime costs?

You’re rolling with cloud only back-ups but it could be costing you lots of downtime.

A Windows server update automatically installed but it broke your primary office server. Worse, your only backup is an untested cloud system so you get that started and wait. And wait some more. Because the cloud has a slow download the total restore took…guess how long? A few hours? A day? Try a week of real-world downtime. We’ve helped businesses with similar problems and you can trust us to setup redundant on-site data back ups that would have your server restored in minutes.

If you know your server’s amount of data usage you can calculate an estimate yourself with this great tool.

We rely on tech services to get our daily jobs done just like any tools. When your servers get knocked offline you’re missing out on those tools. This can mean your document data, chat, email, phone, printers, version control, productivity software, accounting software, CAD systems, or countless other tools you rely on. Calculate your productivity loss by the number of employees relying on that service and their hourly wage. Add in the cost to your image and reputation with customers and the time you will be unable to do business with them.

Everyday we risk downtime from outages. Most people fail to prepare to manage downtime in a way that optimizes costs to keep you online doing what you do best.
