  1. Networking How and where you Should house your Servers

  2. What is a Server? • A server is a specialized computer that stores and manages information and acts as a hub to connect other computers and devices, or “clients”. • With a server, you can share files and resources, such as faxes and printers, in a secure manner. • A server also provides date backup and storage, as well as e-mail and Internet access.

  3. Internet Server

  4. Proper setup of a server room • Space requirements: Remember what works now may not in five years. • Location: It should be placed in central location. • There should be a static pad near the entrance of the room.

  5. Proper room temperature • Computer and networking equipment is designed to operate within a narrow temperature range. • The ideal temperature is between 68-71 degrees Fahrenheit. • Even a few degrees to hot can blow a chip. • This can be very costly in many different ways.

  6. Security • The server room should only be accessible to IT personnel. • The door should be a self locking door.

  7. Things that you should not see • The room and equipment should be free from static and magnetic items. • There should be no electrical emanations from transformers and fluorescent lights. • The room should be kept free of dust.

  8. Other continents of the room • You should have an accurate log of all software, it should be kept in a safe. • You should have an accurate log of all hardware and its serial numbers.
