Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people to show each other how much they care. But have you shown your IT system that you appreciate the tireless work it does every day? If not, this might be the perfect time to give your technology some much-needed TLC. Here are some ways of doing that, courtesy of your Austin business IT support team at Gravity Systems.
Update your software.
Updating your software is one of the most important things you can do to keep your IT system healthy, happy and safe. Apply those security patches as needed, step up to the latest (and most secure) versions of your favorite applications, and check for any conflicts in the settings or preferences that need ironing out.
Replace aging hardware.
Your computer components and accessories have done a lot of hard work on your behalf, so give them a much-deserved retirement if they seem to be ailing or struggling. Don’t wait until those parts give out completely; swap them out while they’re still running.
Speed up your network.
Your IT system wants to run free at its top speed, so don’t force it to crawl along at a snail’s pace due to antiquated cabling or an inadequate Internet connection. Give it the technological upgrades that can boost its bandwidth, increase connection speeds, and ensure optimal up time.
Clean your components.
Is your technology showing signs of neglect? Dusty servers and workstations must work harder to circulate air and maintain correct operating temperatures, increasing the risks for malfunctions and premature failure. Remove the dust from those critical components, modify your air-cleaning system as needed, and make sure your components have the necessary ventilation at all times.
