Down with downtime

Wednesday, 17 December 2014

The world of the creative is centred on their technology. So are the worlds of administrators, designers, technicians, and the rest of the VFX populace.

So what happens if your technology fails?

Granted, it’s rare. But when you have hot machine rooms, busy staff, and complex pipelines there are more potential points of failure than there are for your regular office worker. We really can’t afford to be without our workstations or servers for an extended period of time. Which is why HP Care Packs are the lifejacket we hope we never need.

Get it fixed

In those hopefully infrequent times when a workstation all but explodes you need to get it fixed on site. And fast. Normally it could take more than a day and only available from 9 - 5, but with the right choice of HP Care Packs you can get a response to fix your technology in under four hours no matter what time of day or night it might be. Your downtime is mitigated and taken to its lowest possible level. Instead of losing days of work you could only have four hours to worry about.


Longer warrantees

The same goes for extending warrantees. While the three years offered on most machines is a good standard, the Care Packs can extend that by another year. Meaning that if you repurpose your machines after three years to get some more life out of them and they die, you can get them repaired at a similarly speedy rate.

All of this really comes into the fore when you consider the mission critical nature of your work. Whether you’re a huge company with hundreds of workstations to consider, or a freelancer working from home you can offset your downtime, stress, and loss of profit by taking out one of HP’s Care Packs.
