Robust Advatronix® Cirrus™ Servers Deliver Reliability and Fault-Tolerance
Your company wants what all other enterprises want: zero down time. Technical failures lose business and lower employee morale, yet enterprise downtime continues to be a very real problem. Industry analyst firm the Aberdeen Group reports 93 percent of companies still suffer measurable amounts of downtime each year.
In a 2012 survey, the analyst firm surveyed enterprises to find what systems provided the best grade of protection. The response was fault-tolerant servers. Companies using these servers reported 99.999 percent uptime. Additionally, fault-tolerant systems protect against loss or corruption of data, protecting inflight data that has not yet been written to disk. Specific elements of fault-tolerant servers can make them even more robust for your company.
Your new impeccable servers need to be kept as clean as the day they were installed. That means keeping your server dust and particle free. Advatronix® The Cirrus™ 1200 has a synthetic mesh filter to ward off dust. The reusable filter requires no tools and has a magnetic frame that adheres and detaches to and from the server with no downtime. Advatronix recommends cleaning the filter once to twice a month.
Ensuring your system does not experience outages goes beyond bracing your system for utility power failures. A robust server is built on a protective power distribution system that has built-in safeguards such as an uninterruptible power supply to a rack level power distribution unit, and the server’s internal power supply.
For the highest server reliability, you’ll want a server with a little more oomph than the standard power supply. Advatronix® Cirrus™ servers use an 80 Plus Gold server grade power supply.
Additionally, the standard server grade power supply has a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) levels 0, 1, 5 and 10. Advatronix® supports multiple RAID levels 0,1,1E, 5EE, 6, 10, 50 and 60.
Fault-tolerant servers are gaining ground and providing unparalleled reliability. Within this industry, careful research of critical elements will help you make the best decision for your company.
