Research shows that organizations experience 14.1 hours of down-time annually, causing businesses to lose approximately 545 hours of staff productivity and $1.55 million in lost profits every year. As such, businesses must take proactive steps to prevent issues that lead to down-time.
With remote server monitoring and management, business owners and IT leaders get advanced warning of pending updates, irregular behavior and failures of in-house servers. Depending on configuration, automated scripts are activated and will execute preprogrammed actions to fix issues and correct problems remotely. By stopping such issues in their tracks, remote server monitoring can help avert bigger problems from occurring.
Aside from initial upfront investments, ongoing maintenance, and server hardware and software upgrades plus the cost of recruiting, training and maintaining IT staff can quickly raise the cost of server ownership. Of course, that affects the business’s bottom line. There are costs to deploying remote server monitoring solutions, but nowhere near the costs of a manual approach.
