With UK temperatures reaching record breaking temperatures this week, it’s crucial that you keep your IT infrastructure cool, so that your business can operate as normal.
The optimum temperature for a serverAn optimum temperature for a server is approximately 20 degrees Celsius, which means intervention is necessary, in this weather, to keep things from overheating.
5 ways to keep your server coolHere’s our check list on keeping your servers cool: Invest in an air conditioning unit and maintain it too, with regular services
- If you have a cabinet of equipment, allow air to flow between the hardware – don’t be tempted to stack items directly on top of each other
- Clean off any dust from the server – this will help the fans work properly
- With a Datcom Service Desk contract your IT equipment is monitored around the clock. We’ll let you know if things get too hot.
- Plan for the worst case scenario. If the server does overheat – what happens? Will it power down properly? Do you have a backup plan?
