Servers are the backbone of your company. Everything IT related runs on a server of some form. Emails? Server based, File storage? Server based. Applications? Server based.
Because of the massive role that servers play in the day to day working life, IT like to ensure that servers are suitably spec’d, that means allocating budget towards upgrading servers when they reach the end of their life. One common thing that we come across is old out of date servers, which have been forgotten because they kept working, however when theirs a power outage, or someone accidently plugs in that toaster that was supposed to be thrown out, and shorts the building. You might find that the ever faithful server just won’t turn back on. This shows the importance of ensuring that Servers are upgraded when they reach End of Life.
