It seems that the days of snow are finally behind us and that big golden thing in the sky has made an appearance.
It’s time to enjoy the warmer temperatures but have you thought about the effect that the temperature has on your IT Equipment?
You may have seen this error on your Phone or Tablet from time to time and you should always take measures to cool it as soon as possible.
If you are out in the sun get it into the shade and allow it to cool as extended periods of heat can cause faster deterioration of the internal components and shorten the life of the battery. Mobile devices should be kept between 0°C and 35°C
In your server room you run similar risks as extended periods of heat give you a much higher risk of system failure and downtime.
A server should be kept running at between 20°C and 24°C and dangerous temperatures are classed as anything higher than 30°C
If your server room is beyond this limit installation of an air conditioning unit should be considered.
With a Blueloop Packaged Services Agreement we can monitor the temperature for you and take appropriate and safe shut-down action in extreme cases.
