Below are some of the common server facts we find our customers are surprised to learn.

  1. Servers life time is longer than you think. The typical upgrade cycle is 3 years; however, recent analyst research documented that servers can last anywhere between 6 to 10 years due to server hardware improvements. These CPU and memory improvements help servers meet or exceed software minimum requirements for well over 3 years.
  2. Blade Server Technology provides significantly more density and less footprint all while providing less power consumption and more efficient cooling and cable consolidation.
  3. At a component level, servers may not vary as much as you think from generation to generation. Typically, processors and memory are the only core components that change within a server and it’s typically a small change that may not impact your existing application. Keep in mind, the data transfer rate and the power consumption do improve in current-generation servers.
  4.  If you are looking to conserve more power, current generation servers are more power-efficient as manufacturers improve component design.
