In the broadening cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices. This white paper describes the types of PM services that can help safeguard the uptime of data centers and IT equipment rooms.
This whitepaper covers:
- Preventive Maintenance approaches and methodologies
- The evolution of Preventive Maintenance
- Software design as a critical success factor
- Recommended best practices
