How a Messy Server Room Can Cost You

why your server room must be neat

Work with professional cable installers to ensure a neat and safe server room.

Every company requires a server room for its network connectivity. This room may be closet-sized or the size of an entire room. Whether large or small, your server room must be kept clean and organized. If it isn’t, your network connections may suffer, and you may be more vulnerable to network downtime that costs your company money and productivity. Experts from FiberPlus can install the structured cabling that keeps your server room neat and your network running smoothly. Read on to learn more about why a neat server room is so essential. 


When your servers go down, you need to get them back up and running as soon as possible. Any network downtime is money and business lost for that day. If you have cords and unused pieces of equipment lying around your server room, it can be challenging to navigate and discover the problem. A structured cabling system uses labels and cord ties to make everything clear. This way, you can easily find the cables you are looking for without creating a further mess. 

Fire Hazards

Electronics will get hot when they are used for extensive periods. This is true for your servers, and when you have multiple server units stacked next to each other, that warmth is amplified. When combined with poor airflow or human error, this can lead to a fire hazard. Your cable installers will help you avoid fire hazards by removing unnecessary equipment and keeping cables and servers contained and separate from one another. 

Wear and Tear on Equipment

As you use them more and more, your servers can wear down just like any other equipment. To reduce this wear and tear, you can keep your server room cool by using fans. Your servers should also be stacked correctly. If your server room is messy and cluttered, your servers can wear down a lot faster and require costly maintenance or replacements sooner. 

When you work with a fiber installation company, you can benefit from the expertise these professionals bring regarding proper care and organization of your network cables. A clean server room can significantly improve the reliability and safety of your fiber cables and servers.
