These days, server hardware issues are much less common than in the early days of IT when power supply, and other failures were common occurrences. Of course, the easy protection against power supply failures is to use redundant power supplies. The question is, how do you know if a power supply has failed and it has to be replaced? The server in question may be running on a single power supply, which means there is no longer redundancy until the failed power supply has been replaced.
