Why Are Server Closets Needed?

Technology is a vital part of our daily life. Not only do most (if not most) of us use it in our personal time, but it also is integral to business. At ProLink, we believe every business should have access to every amenity to ensure everything runs smoothly and safely. With that comes the matter of storing everything, which is best done with a server closet. Below are the top two reasons why server closets are needed in businesses.

Your Equipment Stays Safe

Above all, safety is key- and a dedicated server closet keeps your equipment and business safe. To begin, typically, server closets are climate controlled. As servers and their related equipment work, they can heat up, and everyone knows that overheating technology is a recipe for disaster. A climate-controlled server closet ensures the room stays at a reasonable temperature, avoiding massive heat spikes.

Since the equipment is in a dedicated space, it ensures it is free from accidental spills (for complete assurance, we recommend a “no food or drink” sign on the closet door!). It also ensures the equipment is safe from tampering- especially if your business protects the closet with access control to keep it secure.

Any Expansions or Repairs Can Be Done With Ease

The organization is imperative to ensure things run as intended- at every level, from keeping cables organized to keeping all things IT secure. When ProLink designs your server cabinet, we ensure we consider any future expansions, replacements, upgrades, or repairs. We ensure an organized system that makes it easy for anyone to identify an issue and repair it. No need to worry about untangling a ball of wires!

Your business deserves all of the benefits that come from a professionally assembled server closet– and we at ProLink Communications are happy to provide exactly that. We have been helping Nashville, Tennessee, and the surrounding areas for the last 15 years, with many great reviews to show for it.
