Why is my server so slow?
There may not be enough space and it could be overloaded because since you had it installed, you now have five more staff members and you have simply outgrown your server. Or you may have too much installed on your server and you are beginning to exceed its capacity causing it to run slowly. It is also possible that your server had not been configured properly in the first place, or its not being managed correctly. All of which can significantly impact speed and performance.
Don’t waste any more time, call us on 03 9874 5473 to find out why your server is running slow and what your options are.
Why does my server keep crashing?
The server has crashed again, and this is the third time it’s happened this week................Are you getting frustrated and worried that it seems to be happening more often? Will it get worse and what will happen next?
Let’s say you have 10 employees, it takes around 20 minutes for staff to log off, restart the server, and log back on again.
With 10 staff x 20mins = 200 minutes each time the server crashes.
This week the server has crashed 3 times x 200mins = 600 minutes or 10 hours this week alone!!!!!
Let’s assume that your average staff member costs you $35 per hour X 10 hours (time where staff have no computer access) = $350 per week, cost to YOU. Staff sitting idle waiting to access files to do their work.
If this was to happen every second week for a year this could cost your business $350 per week x 26 weeks = $9,100 per year potential cost to YOU. I don’t know about you, but I could use $9,100 in my business more wisely. This doesn’t even take into account, that staff may have potentially lost what they were working on, and have to do this or part of their work again........ Adding more cost to you.
Stop your server from crashing and minimise downtime. Call us now and save yourself thousands of dollars 9874 5473.
Your server could be crashing for any number of reasons.
If you work in an industrial estate, you may be receiving an interrupted power supply, which can cause your server to crash. You may have been sold a product that is not suitable for your business needs. It may have been fine at the time of purchase, but the sales person gave no consideration for your business plans over the next two or three years. Or, you have grown far more than you expected, and the current server just does not have the capacity to keep up with your current business requirements.
You might say, “The server crashes a few times a week, so what. I just restart it, and away we go. It’s no big deal.” What appears to be a small and insignificant inconvenience that’s easily remedied can actually be a significant cost to your business. When you actually stop and think about, what is the REAL COST to me and my business??.......... $$$, time, stress and frustration for me and my team.
Why pay for technology that does not perform and potentially cost you more money?

How do I tell if I need new server or if I should upgrade my old server?
People often ask this question, and it really depends on your current and future business requirements. If you are asking this question because your server is running slowly, and or frequently crashing, the solution may be as simple as needing more space. One solution may be to install additional memory, or an additional server to support your existing server. Or, perhaps it was not set up correctly in the first place, and it needs to be wiped to start again and set up correctly for your business structure. It may also be that the product you were sold is just poor quality and not up to the task, and yes, it may be time for a new server. If your server is more than six years old and not performing efficiently, then it may also be time for a new server.
