Performing daily, weekly and monthly maintenance for your IT infrastructure is essential to preventing downtime, data loss and cyber attacks. With a proactive approach to IT maintenance, you can help ensure your business will operate smoothly, efficiently and responsively.
IT maintenance can include such things as:
- Backing up files
- Removing files no longer needed or excessively large in size
- Updating systems and software
- Testing equipment
- Reviewing technology and data contracts
- Monitoring cyber security
Types of IT Maintenance
Preventive maintenance helps keep equipment and systems running smoothly. This can include tasks such as updating software, patching security and testing equipment. The goal is to avoid downtime.
Corrective maintenance addresses a problem that has already occurred and is more reactive, such as troubleshooting equipment or software that is not responding.
Predictive maintenance is becoming more widespread and can help identify potential failures or problems before they occur. Predictive maintenance is often done by monitoring performance data, network activity and trends.
Adaptive maintenance focuses on keeping systems-up-to-date. With technology moving so fast, this is especially important today. Adaptive maintenance can include changing system configurations or adding new technologies.
