Server reliability

Detect and fix unauthorized access and errors in your IT system,
{ before they occur }

Facing the risk

In the digital age, companies have to cope with a constantly growing volume of data. “Big Data” places significantly higher demands on the reliability and security of the IT infrastructure: data is no longer found only on on-prem server structures but also in private or public clouds. Regardless of the underlying operating model, data and processing results must be available as quickly as possible. This leads to high requirements for fail-safety, especially in the case of distributed data storage.

 

With complexity increase, the risk of failure increases.

The causes of failures are manifold. On the one hand, a complex operating model, e.g. based on highly agile customer or business requirements, can lead to a complex and vulnerable infrastructure. On the other hand, the infrastructure is increasingly threatened by various forms of cyber attacks, both “from within” and “from outside”.

Hybrid and fast-growing IT systems in particular offer a larger attack surface against an ever-growing number of attack vectors. A simultaneous increase in the complexity of the IT infrastructure increases the probability of vulnerabilities. CuriX® regularly informs you about the complexity of your infrastructure.

 

Why a resilient infrastructure?

 

Resilience is the ability to survive difficult situations. An essential building block for the resilience of IT infrastructures is the automatic monitoring of technical systems. New technologies are constantly changing the way IT services, applications and infrastructures work and are used. Previously relevant requirements, such as response times, performance KPI’s, and data throughput rates are now taken for granted and thus become a basic requirement. With CuriX®, these key performance indicators can be monitored automatically and with foresight.

Due to their architecture and role within a network, servers are a potential weak point. Here, it is important to create a structure that provides the highest level of security against cyber attacks while protecting a system’s critical components from failure. The resilience of a system is largely determined by how much impact component vulnerabilities can have on the overall system. CuriX® helps you to identify influences of individual components of your IT infrastructure on your business areas.

What are the possible failures of servers?

Holistic IT concept requires security at all levels

Globalized digital networking has led to an increase in attacks on IT systems. Even the smallest attacks can result in immense financial damage for companies. The damage to reputation is often difficult to quantify. The costly interruption of ongoing operations can cause serious disruptions to the value chains of entire industries, possibly resulting in claims for damages. Some causes of server failures are listed below:

1

Defect of technical components

2

Other internal sources of risk such as power failure or human error

3

Attacks by hackers or cyber criminals

4

Unauthorized physical or virtual access (from inside as well as outside)

5

Failures due to unstable and overly complex structures

6

Natural disasters

What to look for in server resilience?

Even if manufacturers strive for a high level of fail-safety when developing new server systems, one hundred percent protection can never be guaranteed. Reliability is therefore a particular focus during subsequent operation and maintenance.

It is important to detect unauthorized access or potential errors in your IT systems in advance. Predictive failure prediction can reduce server downtime to a minimum.

CuriX® is a highly scalable fault prediction and anomaly detection solution. The software has a holistic approach, analyzing potential risks and minimizing potential threats. With the combination of statistical methods and algorithms from machine learning, Big Data is analyzed and predictions are made. This makes it possible to act early instead of reacting late, thus completely avoiding potentially expensive and image-damaging accesses or failures.

By “learning” the processes and system sequences of your system landscape, CuriX® reduces the number of false alarms and thus ensures greater efficiency in the operation of the IT infrastructure and services.

Watch out for:

Fail-safe power supply

Redundant components such as power supplies, internet lines, network components

Regular updates

Keep all data classified and redundant

Collect relevant data for monitoring the infrastructure

Establish relevant KPI’s for monitoring the infrastructure
