Spending less on technology assets is a great challenge to every organization, this is why it is crucial to understand how important your server is to your day-to-day operations. You want to plan ahead for the replacement, and not just reacting to a server crash.
At Intelligent Technical Solutions, we recommend clients replace their servers and workstations five to six years from purchase. It’s understandable that you want to get the most out of your office equipment, but if the warranty runs out, it is better to lease or finance your new server.
If the server cannot be replaced at this time, ensure to extend the warranty and get 24/7 support with a 4 hours response time.
