It’s a fact. Buying the right servers for your business is one of the most critical decisions you can make. Low-level security breaches are becoming increasingly sophisticated, costing companies millions of dollars in fines and lawsuits, not to mention damage to their brand and reputation. Take any one of the high-profile breaches that has popped up in the headlines over the last few months. You need a server that protects your hardware and firmware. Period.
Outage costs are mounting, too – to the tune of up to millions of dollars per day, according to a recent study by Aberdeen Group. Your server must maximize your uptime to facilitate 24/7 operations for your business. How can you afford an unreliable server? And meanwhile, since data centers typically spend a majority of their budget on power and cooling, the wrong server can waste significant energy, space and money.
