The challenges of manual server management

IT teams managing a small business server will inevitably spend a great deal of time on routine but important tasks.

Resolving issues
When a network server, backup server, or application server goes down, the results can be disastrous for the business. IT administrators log a lot of hours working to prevent downtime or to bring servers back online as quickly as possible.

Managing devices
Administrators must manage an array of physical and virtual devices, installing component-level drivers, managing software applications, and configuring devices to make sure that everything is working properly.

Applying updates and patches
As software and hardware evolve, updates and patches must be continually implemented to ensure that servers run smoothly and that threats and issues can be avoided.

Installing applications
New applications must be configured properly to ensure they are available for users and integrated with other IT resources.

Ensuring compliance
IT teams must take specific steps to ensure data privacy and integrity and to manage response after a data breach occurs.

Monitoring security
Administrators must also be sure that all security measures and protocols are up-to-date.
