Well, we hope Blue Monday (Jan 20th) passed without too much angst in the data centre!  It is actually hard to believe it is already nearly the end of January 2020.  It has been quite mild this winter to date, but parts of the UK have already experienced serious flooding, and there is more severe weather expected next week with snow.

If 2020 has not already got crazy for you on the work front make sure you are on top of some data centre essentials. Before Christmas you should already have been running maintenance checks on your data centre environmental and monitoring systems – it is a mistake to think that heat is the only enemy of the data centre.  You should also be checking the protocols and processes that are in place for when alerts are raised, as well as whether the contact details for those that should be alerted are up to date.

Finally, for us, January marks the start of our preparations for Data Centre World 2020 at London ExCeL on March 11th and 12th.  We hope to see you at the show, and you’ll be able to catch up with the team on stand D465.
