⟹ Third, the computer room environment. The configuration of the computer room environment, such as ventilation conditions, fire conditions, air conditioning, etc., these external factors can also affect the stability of the server.
⟹ Fourth, hacking. Hackers are becoming more and more popular, and servers must be equipped with high-performance firewalls and the necessary anti-virus software.
⟹ Fifth, hardware failure. For example, hard drive failure, network card failure, etc. So there must be a fallback.
⟹ Sixth, safety management errors. For example, fire, equipment damage caused by human error, etc.
⟹ Seventh, force majeure factors. For example, wars, earthquakes, floods, etc.
