Maintenance tips

What can I do to prevent premature failure of my RAID server system?

Before I finish with this third and final RAID recovery Q&A, if you don’t have a RAID system, I want you to know that The Data Rescue Center is here for you as well.
For both business and home users, we provide both Windows® and Mac data recovery. We perform hard disk file recovery on standard platter-style drives and on solid-state drives, call SSDs. And now . . . the final question, please!
What can I do to prevent premature failure of my RAID server system?
That is an excellent question, one that I wish more folks would ask.  Some tips apply to desktop computers and laptops as well.
Heat is a major enemy of any electronic equipment. It can be especially damaging to computer equipment. Servers should be housed in cool, dry environments, often in a separate room. These computer rooms should be temperature-controlled to keep the equipment running optimally.
Dust is another foe of computers. Keep the room clean and use air filtration to reduce air-borne contaminants. Clean debris from components when possible.
Finally, install a combination battery-backup (UPS) and surge suppression system. The surge suppression will prevent damage from power surges and the UPS will guard against data loss and damage during power failures.
