If you have servers, they will be the heart of your network and so they must meet the needs of your business plans. With sound and solid advice, reliability and performance do not need to be compromised by budget.
We can help select the best mix of On-Premise or Hosted servers to match the operational requirements of the business. Sometimes, capacity limitations can be overcome by taking advantage of network storage (often known as NAS), as part of the best mix for the business.
The server build should include redundancy and a manufacturer’s comprehensive support plan for added reliability and recoverability and, where possible, built with virtual server technology (we use the industry leader – VMWare) so that your business operation is not impacted by hardware failure. Building with virtual server technology means we can restore your servers quickly and even replicate the entire server to a hosted hot standby system if required, minimising downtime.
If you have a server and are worried about its performance, reliability or capacity, get in touch.
As your network expands to include hosted servers, area offices, home and mobile workers network security becomes an ever more important subject and requires in depth consideration. Flex IT will make sure your network is secure, optimised and providing effective communication for remote users and hosted servers as well as interoffice connectivity. We design, install and maintain cabled and wireless network infrastructures for reliability and future capacity. The wider network to hosted services and interoffice connectivity is provided through wholesale and partner relationships so that the best possible solution can be selected.
As part of your ongoing support the monitoring of your networks performance allows us to spot potential failures and security threats quickly. If your network is causing you problems or you need to expand your organisation, we can help so please give us a call.
“Just over 5 years ago we decided to move from PC’s to MAC Mini’s and at the same time use a hosted email service. We asked our support company Flex, to implement that change for us and the transition was completed very smoothly. Since then we have replaced our old file server with a new Network Store, a new A3 Printer and additional MAC Mini’s. I would be pleased to recommend Flex IT.”
