Data Privacy Day Reminder: Protect Data with Drive Shredding & Wiping Service
Observed annually on January 28, Data Privacy Day is the designated day to think about the importance of data privacy and promote the protection of private information in our digital world. Businesses and organizations host events throughout the month to help raise awareness about current privacy issues and best practices for safeguarding data. People learn more about how personal information is collected, stored, used and shared. The day promotes dialogue and encourages action to bring real change.
Take the time each January to celebrate National Data Privacy Day by promoting privacy awareness, but when the day passes, remember that respecting and protecting data is not a one-day or even one-month occasion.
As the number and size of data breaches continue to grow, businesses must make data privacy protection a continuous effort, and be transparent about those efforts. If you collect consumers’ personal data, be honest about how that information is collected, used and shared. Keep it secure, protected.
What Makes ServerMonkey Different from the Many Server Stores?
As technology continues to grow and the demands of up-to-date hardware and software increases, ServerMonkey prides itself on selling the latest IT products and solutions, including cost-effective, high-quality refurbished servers. Our company and a few others provide refurbished servers, but what makes ServerMonkey stand out from the rest?

5 Signs It's Time to Replace Your Business Server
Business servers are vital to a company’s operations, so it is important to know when to replace one before failure results in a significant loss, but with various industry recommendations found online, how do you know when it’s time to invest in a new or refurbished server? Consider these 5 signs:
1. Customer Feedback / Diminishing Performance of a Server
If you are experiencing diminishing performance, your server is slow and no longer keeping up with the workload, it may be time to replace it. Maybe you haven’t noticed any issues, but according to your sales team, customer feedback indicates a problem.
Upgrading the CPU, replacing hard drives and adding more memory can help improve performance, but these and other upgrades may not provide the boost your server needs. In many cases, it is more cost-effective to replace the server, especially an aging one.
Every year we love to spread Christmas cheer by donating to a local toy drive or charity to help our littlest neighbors in need celebrate the season. This year we partnered with Blue Santa Houston to help stock their Santa's Workshop!
Houston, TX, November 12, 2019 -- ServerMonkey, a full-service information technology company specializing in new and refurbished enterprise IT hardware, in addition to asset disposition and recycling services, is set to attend SC19.
SC19, a yearly series of conferences, continues to inspire students and attendees alike with knowledge from the HPC (high-performance computing) community.
With its first conference on supercomputing in 1988, and later integrating with SCinet in 1991, the HPC community continues to evolve and draw in the largest network of high-performance networking experts. SCinet’s mission since the beginning is to “bring new technologies and capabilities to bear.”
What are Refurbished Servers?
In the same way that electronics are refurbished, a refurbished server holds the same meaning in which it consists of a customer returning an open or unopened product in a like-new condition but cannot be sold as new again and is offered with a deep discount. This is especially different from “used” in which the “refurbished” unit is free from defects.
What are SSDs? – Solid State Drives
In terms of speed, reliability, and form factor, an SSD is the reigning champion when it comes to accessing and retrieving data. Instead of storing data via magnetic storage, a solid state drive stores data with flash memory which is more efficient at reading and writing data.
A typical SSD will outperform a hard drive by 100 times or more depending on the SSD. To put that into perspective, a rendering program would take about an hour to render an entire video with a traditional HDD while an SSD could do it in less than half the time!
In terms of capacity, SSDs have been growing and can now accommodate a whopping 1TB of data! Although there are some companies that have created in the realm of 60TBs!
Due to its small size and light weight, SSDs are excellent for longevity, power consumption and noise. You can stick them to pretty much any surface since they’re about ¼ the size of a traditional HDD. It also has no moving parts, which entails less corruption of data, no noise and less power consumption.
As prices for SSDs continue to drop and more businesses switch over to them, you can expect them to become the standard for enterprises and servers.

Houston, TX, August 14, 2019 -- ServerMonkey, a full-service information technology partner specializing in new and refurbished servers and networking equipment, is pleased to announce the company has achieved e-Stewards certification.

Having a secure way to handle IT equipment disposal is crucial to protect a company’s sensitive data and brand. With the way technology is constantly evolving, IT asset disposal is becoming more complicated and riskier for your business. Companies used to simply dump old equipment into landfills, however doing this not only puts your data at risk for theft but can also have implications with the law. To protect your company and its data, you need professional ITAD services.
ITAD is an acronym standing for Information Technology Asset Disposition, and it’s all about disposing of unwanted equipment in a safe manner. It’s crucial to find an ITAD company that you trust to dispose of and recycle your unused equipment in a responsible manner. If data stored on your devices isn’t decommissioned properly or responsibly your company is at risk for a data breach.
The highly specialized machinery you use to run your company needs to be decommissioned by an expert; not only for the sake of your privacy but also because specialists will be able to recycle parts and handle the machinery in the most environmentally friendly and efficient manner.
