Happy Outage Season


Did you know June to August is affectionately referred to as “Outage Season” in the data center world?


According to various reports, major DC facilities fall off the grid during these three months more often than any other time of the year. The cause of outages varies, but it’s most often heat strain on poorly cleaned and maintained machines and other equipment.


Experts indicate that without quarterly health checks of DC hardware, equipment may not be operating at peak capacity in the winter and spring.  Without proper cleaning, summer could grill your facility.
