Hospitals have been shut down.
The ones actively operating on sick people.
How does this happen?
Because those hospitals LET IT HAPPEN.
We could engage in a discussion about the people doing this, but that doesn’t help.
Let’s instead look at how the heck hospitals LET THIS HAPPEN.
We recently worked with a customer that had an efficiency issue with how their wireless network was setup.
The customer was an east coast marine company and had over 100+ Access Points (APs) at 17 ports. The issue was with the previous installation of the wireless network; they had to manually configure APs individually every time they made a change. This might be feasible if there are 2 or 3 different locations, but not 100 APs over 17 ports!
Customer had 1 physical server running 3 virtual servers. Those 3 virtual servers contained all their company data. Since they are housed on 1 physical server, an issue with that 1 piece of physical hardware could take down all 3 virtual servers.
Downtime for this company was estimated to cost them $4,500/Hour.
Customer asked us to improve their chances of avoiding future server downtime.
