Outdated Hardware + Outdated Software = Lose of Productivity and Money
While your old server may seem “fine,”and a cost effective option, clinging onto it can be costly and dangerous. The security risk of using an older server is the number one danger of keeping old hardware in use. It is especially dangerous when the manufacturer no longer supports the item, and can easily be hacked. The second biggest risk of keeping an old server is data lose, usually when least expected. Perhaps it’s time to invest in a new server.
Risks of Outdated Hardware:
• Data corruption and lose (data recovery, and data clean up can be
very time consuming and costly)
• Increased vulnerability to cyber threats
• Indirect IT problems = Higher IT Costs
• Higher Chance of system failure
