Manage your IT Systems

Over 90 % of systems downtime or lagging is preventable. Early warning signs usually present themselves as soon as abnormalities in behaviour are detected and are easily and quickly be fixed at an early stage. It is significantly more expensive to remedy a problem that has happened than to carry out pre-emptive action.

We monitor over 600 different variables on your business critical systems e.g. temperature, storage space, connectivity, responsiveness, software versions, security etc and we provide periodical reports of the General Status/Health of Monitored Systems and respond to alerts according to our service agreements.

We offer a cost-effective alternative to directly employing an IT Engineer.

Microsoft Cloud Administration

Cloud Computing offers tremendous advantages over the traditional IT model by delivering web-based software, middleware and computer solutions on demand. Cloud computing offers a range of benefits and improvements over dedicated servers. In many cases, this means that it no longer makes business sense to replace end-of-life servers. A key benefit of cloud computing is that it provides a ready-made disaster recovery solution. If, in a traditional server environment, an office is affected by a power outage, internal and remote users will be unable to access their server.

In the scenario of a cloud-based infrastructure, if an office loses power then users can access their systems on any internet-enabled computer, email can be delivered to smartphones, and the organisation can continue to work effectively.

Cloud computing enables you to upgrade computer systems without the inconvenience and huge costs of traditional server upgrades. Users of cloud services also benefit from the very latest software with levels of redundancy and security previously only available to extremely large organisations and those with deep pockets! Reduced costs. Cloud computing can save up to 60% compared to traditional server environments. As well as no up-front costs, accounting for depreciation is a thing of the past!

Virtualisation Management

In it’s simplest form, virtualisation is the process of taking a physical server and using it to run multiple operating systems. Virtualisation can improve network performance and reduce hardware cost.

Virtualisation makes it possible to achieve significantly higher resource utilisation by sharing the physical server and moving away from the old model of “one application to one server”. Example:  in the past a typical office may have had one server for file and print sharing, one for email and one for their accounts package.  These three servers could now be hosted on the one physical server and still keep them completely separate from each other.

With virtualisation, you can reduce the number of servers and related IT hardware in the server room. This leads to reductions in space requirements, power and cooling requirements. This results in significantly lower running costs. If a virtual machine crashes, all others are unaffected.
