As the month of March comes to a close, we arrive at World Backup Day. World Backup Day—March 31st—is set aside as a reminder to back up your files, even if it’s only once a year
World Backup Day is not just a day to backup your personal data. It’s a day to talk about preserving our digi-centric culture. For manufacturers like Accuride it’s a day to evaluate how we contribute to the data industry.
Large amounts of valuable data are lost every day because people fail to follow one basic procedure: Back up your data. A backup is a reserve copy of all the files you’d be afraid to lose.
Backing your data up is crucial. In our digi-centric world, there are hundreds of ways to suddenly have things go awry. Let’s lay out the hard facts on the necessity to backup:
- 30% of people have never backed up and don’t have any way to save their important files
- 29% of data disasters are caused by accident, costing valuable time and money as the resources they affected are lost forever
- 113 phones are lost or stolen every minute
- 1 in 10 computers, including household and business computers, are infected with a virus each month that may suddenly cause all of your data to be gone beyond retrieval
Data whether it be from financial institution or government files has to go somewhere: and that somewhere is a server. If a server crashes, it can be disastrous. You can imagine that when OEM manufacturers design electronic enclosures for data centers, they need to exude quality in every aspect. That’s why manufacturers call on Accuride to develop their custom server movement solutions.
Accuride’s Client/Server technician Richard Jensen knows what type of wear server slides go through. “Having the tape libraries steady while I’m changing out the tapes is very reassuring.”
Accuride’s 2907 can be found on the Tera 100 super computer; the most powerful system in Europe. It’s the result of a close collaboration between Bull and France’s energy commission. This computer contains 220 electronic enclosures, each one containing 20 servers. Accuride model 2907 slide was selected for its lock-out functionality to hold the chassis stable during servicing.
So remember to backup your files on Friday, March 31st. Visit www.worldbackupday.com and take the pledge. For manufacturers wanting to learn more about Accuride’s electronic enclosure solutions, http://www.accuride.com/.
