Server memory is one of the fields we specialise in here at Mem-Star Distribution. This is why we’ve pulled together this guide to help you understand the importance of upgrading.
1. Relative server performance declines over time as costs increase.
On average, server performance erodes by 14% annually. By the fifth year, a server has only 40% of the performance it had when it was new. Lower performance and higher failure rates increase unplanned downtime by 20% annually. At the same time, higher maintenance costs require additional investment in aging systems.
2. Modern features enhance asset management.
As businesses scale quickly, modern management tools allow better
workload tracking and performance analysis. Upgraded servers have the latest firmware and patching updates, keeping devices secure and in
compliance with enterprise and government specifications.
3. Optimised systems accelerate performance.
Modern servers improve the capability for higher virtual machine density and larger virtual machines. This allows high-end business applications to migrate and run in a virtualised environment. Fewer, more powerful systems can also reduce energy and cooling costs, data center space requirements, maintenance time and licensing costs.
4. Predictive diagnostics improve reliability
Continued usage beyond the optimal life span of servers often causes unplanned downtime due to mechanical components and software aging. Newer systems come with predictive capabilities that warn of incompatibility issues or imminent failures. Automatic notification and proactive support improve reliability.
5. Soon-to-expire service warranties
Following the average server life cycle, service contracts typically expire after three to five years. More frequent failures result in higher labor costs, and replacement parts are expensive and hard to find. Altogether, buying a new server is often more economical than extending the service contract on a legacy system.
