The Value of Doing Server Health Audits on a Regular Basis

What is a Server Health Audit?

In order to keep any system running smoothly it is important to periodically maintain that system. In the case of a car this may consist of changing the oil, checking brakes and tire pressure, and topping off all of your fluids. In a business computer network environment, the same principles are applied as we check error logs, run system maintenance, test backup strategy, and much more. Our Server Health Audits are more than just running maintenance. We spend lots of time to proactively look for potential problems and security holes. We want to find a potential problem before it causes downtime. Read the rest of this entry »
