What is the number one cause of Network Downtime?
A) Natural disaster
B) Human error
C) Hardware failure
D) Software failure
Although natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes get all the press, they actually cause a mere 5% of all downtime.
Hardware failure is by far the number one cause of network downtime and lost productivity at small to mid-sized organizations. Even for organizations that have multiple levels of redundancy in their storage networks, redundant power supplies, and virtual host failover, it only takes one ill-timed cable cut, broken switch port, or simultaneous drive failures to take down a network.
At Pioneering Network, we work with you to identify all single points of failure, be it a single Internet provider, non-redundant links between your switches, virtual hosts without enough capacity, or slow-to-rebuild disk arrays.
If you'd like to discuss how we can help ensure a hardware failure doesn’t make you a statistic, call us today to schedule a comprehensive network audit.
