Last updated 14 September 2022


System failure, power cuts, reboot time, blue screen, screen of death, outage, HHD failure, software freeze and crash, are just some of the phrases we have heard when discussing customer problems.

The knock on effect of any system crashing could be; loss of revenue (for you and your customer), delays in manufacturing / line shutdown, engineer call out time (troubleshooting and fix) not to mention potential PR damage and company reputation within the supply chain.

When a system does crash, what solutions are available to enable a quick system recovery or reboot?
