The Importance of Data Center Refreshes

If you haven’t refreshed your data center hardware in the past three to four years, it’s time to take action. This lifespan is typically agreed upon as appropriate for your business’s data center. After this time period is up, you risk losing productivity and revenue by running on outdated equipment.

You regularly need to refresh your hardware with new, faster equipment, even if the hardware is functioning well. Data center hardware ages from ordinary, everyday wear, but rapidly accelerating technology contributes far more to the eventual obsolescence of your hardware.

If you don’t update your data center every few years, you run the risk of working with equipment that is increasingly unable to handle the volume of information and the speed at which it needs to be processed. Furthermore, the latest applications that your business needs to run to succeed are increasingly complex, and require updated technology.

For your business or organization to function smoothly, you need a data center that is up-to-date. A regular data center refresh schedule will ensure that your business keeps up with the competition.

However, the prospect of a data center refresh brings with it several concerns.
