Business Computer World recommends the following actions to reduce downtime and improve network availability:
- Centralise your servers onto better high-availability platforms. This will help eliminate fault points and improve fault tolerance.
- Use fault-tolerant storage systems to reduce the possibility of fatal disk failures.
- Use uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) to protect against brief power cuts and fluctuations.
- Improve routine backup-and-restore procedures, and also put plans in place for full disaster recovery.
- Improve network management generally, so faults are identified and repaired earlier.
A detailed study into the pros and cons of centralising servers can be found at: www.sresearch.com.
