Protect Your Data Center for the Busy Holiday Shopping Rush
Posted by RJ Tee on November 17, 2017
It’s official: We are now in one of the busiest times of the year for shopping. All across the world, consumers are scouring the Internet looking for deals on gifts. This year, holiday shoppers are expected to spend at least $680 billion which is an increase from the $655 billion that was spent in 2016.
This is great news for your business, especially when coupled with the long-term economic predictions for 2018. According to Goldman Sachs, the economy is expected to boom in 2018. So consumers will have even more money to spend on products and services.
Of course, success isn’t guaranteed in business even during the most favorable economic conditions. In order to capitalize on a healthy market, and win over customers, it’s vital to have one thing: A healthy and fully-functioning network. And this starts with a robust data center power management strategy.
Network downtime, in other words, can happen at any time and for a variety of reasons (like foul weather, environmental catastrophes or human error). And when it happens during a busy time like the holiday rush, it can be absolutely catastrophic.
So as you optimize your data center for the holiday shopping rush, make sure you take power management into consideration. This is something that tends to go overlooked. But power management is a critical part of data center operability, and scalability.
