You never want your business to feel like it’s operating on thin ice when it comes to your computer server. The information housed on your computer system is the foundation of your success; if you should lose access to that information, your business will suffer. The longer it takes to restore your system, the more damage will be done. Power outages, physical damage to your server building, malfunction of software or hardware systems, viruses, crashed operating systems and a host of other problems can cause a server to fail. The best approach is to have prevention measures in place to try to avoid these potential pitfalls as much as possible. However, knowing that no prevention tactic is 100% guaranteed, your business also needs to have a data recovery plan in place for swift action.

Server Crash Prevention Tactics

  • Develop a detailed server crash recovery plan and ensure upper management is on board with the details of the plan
  • Keep your server room clean, tidy and as dust-free as possible
  • Ensure the room is well-ventilated and temperature-controlled; use a redundant A/C
  • Ensure air passes from the front of the room to the back
  • Monitor your server room daily
  • Limit access to the server room
  • Perform regular backups of your system so these can be accessed in case of an emergency
  • Consider using a cluster to divide the work among several systems and lessen the impact of a crash

Server Crash Recovery Tactics

  • Alert your IT team immediately to implement your server crash recovery plan
  • Access the most recent backup of your system to use until you are back up and running
  • Visit the physical server room location to troubleshoot
