Business Needs

Most companies these days are based on a computer network. Many computers perform thousands of tasks per second, from the control of production lines, orders in existence, preparation of financial records and communication with computers on other networks often from across the world. Computers used just one thing to keep track of all these tasks: the time. Dater otimestamps watches are the only reference of computers when an event or task occurs in relation to other events. Computers measure the time in milliseconds (thousandths of a second) periods, since they can carry out hundreds of processes per second a world calendar known as UTC (Coordinated Universal time) has been developed to ensure that computers in different organizations around the world can be paired together. So, what happens if the clocks of computers do not match each other or UTC? The consequences of operating a network with computers that do not they are synchronized can be disastrous.

Here are five reasons why every company needs proper synchronization of networks using an NTP (Network Time Protocol) server or other device 1 network time server. The tasks are no longer met: when computers are running at different times, the events on different machines can fail to occur, frequently a PC can assume that an event has already occurred on another machine, if the time for the event has passed according to its own clock. And what is worse, when a task fails has an effect chain with other tasks that fail to pass and these in turn, cause the failure of more additional tasks. 2. Loss of data: when the tasks are no longer met you will soon notice, but when the networks are not synchronized data, which means are saved, can easily get lost and go unnoticed for quite some time. The data may be lost because the storage and retrieval are also dependent on the timestamps.
