Servers and Virtualization

If you have a funny square box in your back office that no one but a technician touches, you can be fairly sure it’s a server doing something important. If that server is carrying your email or phone systems, and it goes down, you are stuck without a business which could last for days/weeks. Despite this, we have found that an increasing number of businesses are looking to host and virtualize their own servers on site.

Reasons for this include:

  • Cost savings on hardware
  • Easier backup and administration
  • Reduced / eliminated downtime in the event of a failure
  • Decreased disaster response times
  • Dramatically faster deployment times
  • Security
  • Protection of company information
  • Integration with existing infrastructure

Typically, though, onsite server hardware comes with the following problems:

  • A server is setup and works – then left without maintenance
  • There is no onsite support to deal with problems or upgrades
  • Server access is not physically or virtually secured
  • Vendor lock in results in high repair costs
  • Servers are not virtualized where virtualization makes sense.

We provide a comprehensive set of server and virtualization solutions including:

  • Consulting and design
  • Supply , setup and configuration
  • Repairs and emergency callout
  • Maintenance and monthly check-up’s
  • Range of different server hardware and virtualization platforms
