Abstract

It is important to keep your systems running seamlessly, with no interruption of service to your customers. Eliminating redundant processes and equipment yet removing single points of failure are key to a consistent system. Having contingencies in place for failures will reduce downtime, whether it is using premium warranty services and/or carrying spare hardware and parts in your inventory. In a system, all team members must do their job efficiently in order to keep it going or else it will fail.
