As a business grows and its need for additional resources increases, a new server is an inevitability. Logistics experts recommend replacing hardware every few years to keep up with improvements in the industry and maintain adequate network performance. That may sound like a lot of hardware turnover, but consider the extreme wear put on such hardware. The company’s network must be up every hour of every day, which means maintaining a constant electrical flow and dealing with temperature swings, humidity, dust, and other hazards. Even if the hardware is kept in a clean room, it’s unreasonable to expect more than a few years of strong performance from something that works non-stop. And, of course, the upside to frequent replacement is that the business will be able to grow faster and maintain excellent efficiency.
