Serving extravagant needs
As far as servers go, those installed in a superyacht must be able to accommodate whatever the guests and owners may throw at them. Eliminating or, at the very least, reducing any associated issues takes priority.
In addition to that, a server must be able to work well under the sometimes challenging circumstances of the high seas. Even though money is rarely an issue, some problems require technical expertise and skills rather than more cash.
For instance, a server on a luxury home has the benefit of a stable internet connection. Setting up a server in that situation means that a user can adjust the network needs to suit their own purpose simply by upgrading to a better system, regardless of the cost.
In a superyacht, however, a server must be able to do a lot of things simultaneously without incurring too heavy a load. Should performance issues arise, it may not be as easy to fix them as it would be on land and disrupting the guest experience is unacceptable in this industry.
What the best servers can provide
Though challenges may arise when installing a server on a superyacht, there are plenty of choices for a powerful and stable server that can service owners and guests.
As mentioned before, one of the most important aspects to consider here is the opportunity to customise. In theory, there are plenty of great servers which can be purchased and installed aboard a superyacht with little intervention.
Such servers are powerful enough that they can perform to a high standard but they have one major flaw; they are not designed specifically for a superyacht application.
The world’s most powerful servers will not be good enough for a superyacht’s owner if they cannot provide them with exactly what they are looking for. This is especially true in cases where multiple streams are required.
HP, Dell, Lenovo, and many others produce some fantastic products with powerful specifications, decent storage, and affordable prices. However, they either have to be heavily adjusted to fit a superyacht’s needs, or they have to operate with occasional hiccups.
