Three Ways You Can Minimize IT Downtime

Oct 1st, 2017

Downtime isn’t just frustrating, it’s expensive. According to a recent ITIC study, 98% of organizations say a single hour of downtime costs more than $100,000. While that’s a staggering hit to any business’s bottom line, there are simple steps you can take to minimize downtime and maximize your peace of mind.

1. Monitor Your Servers
Wouldn’t it be nice to know if your server was going to crash before it happened? With regular monitoring and maintenance, you can spot potential red flags before you’re face-to-face with downtime. And if/when your server does crash, you can react immediately and get back up and running as quickly as possible.

2. Schedule Regular Backups
When your systems are down, every minute counts. You don’t want to waste time figuring out if you can recover your files after a hardware crash. You need to be able to restore your data as quickly and easily as possible. Scheduling regular backups ensure a speedy recovery and access to the important data you need to run your business.

3. Keep Devices Updated
Maintaining the health, stability, and security of your devices is a time-consuming—but necessary—task. When you stay current with your device and software updates, you reduce the chance of failure and minimize the loss of productivity.

We get it—you’re trying to run a business. Your time is limited and these preventative measures are easier said than done. But, the damage of downtime can be irreversible.

When you trust a managed services provider with your technology, you get a team of reliable IT experts in your corner, who make sure your systems are optimized and prepared with monitoring, system updates, and a business continuity plan. Don’t let the cost of downtime be your downfall. Contact us today to get started.
