Spring is here, and with it comes the time-honored ritual of spring cleaning. There's something really satisfying about making everything all shiny, new and ready for action, whether it's your garage at home or your workplace IT center. It's the perfect time to think about your IT budget, what upgrades you may want to make, and what systems may need renovating or replacing. IT components aren't different from your average toaster in one sense -- eventually they will just reach the end of their life and stop working. Except with a toaster, all you're out of is toast. When an IT component fails, you're out of an IT system, at least until Gravity Systems rushes over with replacement parts.

Evaluate your business IT systems this SpringThat's why preventative maintenance should be a routine part of your IT agenda. Most hardware items should be evaluated once they reach about three years of age. If you've purchased our maintenance program, we can come out to your site, examine every part of your IT system in minute detail, and make recommendations that can help avoid that costly, frustrating failure.

It isn't just big-money components, such as servers, that get old and wear out, either. Your IT system resembles a chain, and one weak link can shut the whole thing down. We examine your whole system, piece by piece, as part of your maintenance program. We may have put a brand new server into your system recently, but if the switches connected to that server are four or five years old, that's a problem. When those switches burn out and go down, that server might as well be a museum relic for all the good it can do you. It's all equally important -- and we can keep it all running as it should. Let Gravity Systems get you ready for Spring!
