In the Data Center industry, we can see this situation, many worker’s results injured when trying to move heavy server cabinets and/or IT cabinets without the right equipment. This injured can cause the death of life long-suffering. All these situations are completely preventable using the right equipment.
Other commons accidents in Data Center are related to fallen Racks or Server Cabinets, let’s see the following photos:
Now, could you calculate the cost of these accidents
Cost of the equipment, in average the cost of the equipment installed in a common server cabinet in Data Center is tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Cost of downtime, According to Gartner, in 2014, the average cost of IT downtime is $5,600 per minute. Because there are so many differences in how businesses operate, downtime, at the low end, can be as much as $140,000 per hour, $300,000 per hour on average, and as much as $540,000 per hour at the higher end. 98% of organizations say a single hour of downtime costs over $100,000. 81% of respondents indicated that 60 minutes of downtime costs their business over $300,000. 33% of those enterprises reported that one hour of downtime costs their firms $1-5 million.
But other costs don’t often show up in dollar form. That’s the cost of interruptions, especially when IT professionals are interrupted from what might be more productive work.
As once reported in the Washington Post, interruptions consume, on average, 238 minutes per day. Also, the time to get started back up after an interruption consumes another 84 minutes a day. The time lost to stress and fatigue steals another 50 minutes a day.
All that adds up to about 6.2 hours per day, or 31 hours per week lost to interruptions! Is it any wonder we’re spending most of our time treading water?
