Winter Storms – To shutdown or not to shutdown your systems that is the question?

January 26th, 2015 by EKG Networking

Welcome to New England, where wait a minute it’s 60 degrees one day and 12 degrees the next.  As we head into a somewhat legendary snow storm, we are being asked “should I shut down my server and unplug it or not?”  For this storm, we are keeping our systems on.  We have battery backups as most of our clients do which will take the hit in the event of power outage and shut down the server safely.  We have one client who is located in the woods and with the amount of wind expected it made sense for them to shut down for the largest part of the storm.

If you  have any questions, please contact us at the office.

Thank you and happy snow storm.
