Hardware requirements for servers vary, depending on the role they are employed to fulfil within the network they are employed to serve. Absolute processor speed is not usually as critical to a server as it is to a desktop machine although all too often these days, processor requirements are specified by application environments. Servers’ duty to provide service to many users over a network lead to different requirements such as fast network connections and high I/O throughput.
Servers often need to run for long periods without interruption as demands on their availability to clients increase, making hardware reliability and durability extremely important. Mission-critical servers can be specified for a high degree of fault tolerance employing specialised hardware in order to maximise uptime, it may take only a few minutes of down time to justify the expense of entirely replacing the system with something more reliable. In fulfilling a fault tolerant role, servers can incorporate faster, higher-capacity hard drives in configurations that can accommodate hard disk failure events without affecting performance or uptime. Uninterrupted power could be assured using dual power supplies that ensure the servers continue to function in the event of a power supply unit (PSU) failure.
For over 25 years we have been providing, installing and supporting clients with the right servers to meet their specific needs and specifications within budgetary restraints and without compromise to both quality and efficiency.
