This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Overcoming the Causes of Data Center Outages
A data center’s main function should be to provide constant uptime for
the mission-critical applications it houses. However, unplanned outages
can happen, and data center operators must be proactive in finding ways
to prevent them. According to the Ponemon Institute’s 2016 survey, Cost of Data Center Outages,
UPS system failure remains as the top cause of unplanned data center
outages. Understanding the causes of data center outages and finding
ways to address them are crucial to preventing business disruption that
can lead to customer churn and damaged reputations.
