With the increasing loads and user base of most enterprise servers, finding one that has all the options you need is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. A quality server should have scalability for larger data sets and larger capacities. Uptime and reliability are also good touchstones to have in a quality server as well as compatibility and recovery tools if needed. Will the server also include cloud-based applications to improve security and uptime? These are just a couple of questions to ask when sourcing a good server.
When you view the company as a hard-working engine, a good server acts as the oil running through that engine. With so much data going back and forth, one hitch in the line is comparable to a blown head gasket in an engine due to faulty lubrication.
Companies need to devise a standard of tests and scores to compare enterprise servers against each other and also be beneficial for your individual company’s needs and expectations. No two companies needs are the same and your tests should reflect that. After sufficient rounds of testing, you can then pinpoint which enterprise server would best meet your company’s needs.
