Double double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble!

Scale of dragon, tooth of pup...turn this downtime into up!

 

Well, it was worth a shot…

 

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s gotten us to thinking about how nice it would be to fix all the terrifying data center and network woes out there simply by casting a magical witch’s spell. After all, trouble always seems to be lurking just beneath the surface, ready to wreak havoc at any moment. Of course, we all know too well that when issues brew with our infrastructure or applications, there are no magical words to turn the dark of night into day. I mean, when was the last time you used eye of newt to ward off a data breach?

 

Of course, there are some data center and network catastrophes in which it may seem like a magic potion is the only hope. You know, the stuff that haunts your nightmares, the stuff that requires the most advanced IT sorcery to quell.

 

On that note, in honor of the most frightful day of the year, we want to hear what your greatest data center and network fears are. The troubles that are almost even too terrible to name.

 

So, using the comments section below, please describe your greatest IT fears. Share your thoughts with us by October 19 and we’ll give you 250 toes of frog, err, I mean, THWACK points in return.
