Server Storage – how to Look After your Servers

Servers should always be kept somewhere safe, within the right conditions. Usually, a server will contain a lot of important information, making it essential to keep the server safe. You should always store it in a cool, dry place away from the possibility of damp.

Use rack panels to store servers efficiently. This will keep them stacked in order and will make sure they are kept neat, organised and, importantly, well ventilated. Many server rack panels will include air holes so that air can circulate and cool down the servers and computers.

You should also keep your servers somewhere you can see them. This is because they will often have indicator lights on them, showing whether the server is in good working order. Check the servers and their status every day to ensure they are performing properly and, crucially, make sure you back up the full server every single day.
