Network installations

Creating a network to serve an organisation's information needs is more than just stringing computers together. It requires intelligent design and correct implementation so information and resources are available to those who need it in a timely fashion. Documents need to be available to print, distribute or synchronise with other devices as and when required. As storage requirements grow, storage needs to be scalable so it can be increased without loss or severe disruption. In the event of a disaster, an organisation's data also needs to be recoverable. To add another layer of complexity to all of this, it's often a requirement to make company resources accessible to outside parties such as home and remote workers. Our engineers have been installing networks for over 20 years so we're proud of the networking knowledge we can offer clients.


Servers

We supply, install and configure servers and storage devices that allow an organisation to provide staff with secure, centralised access to data and resources. This includes domain controllers, file servers, mail servers and application servers running on both Windows and Linux platforms. For smaller businesses and start-ups we supply reliable, secure, fault tolerant file and mail servers for as little as £250. For larger organisations we custom build the highest specification, fully fault-tolerant rack and blade servers with 4-hour mission critical support to cater for the most demanding production environments. We also manage and maintain servers for client's as part of our support offerings.


Server migrations

We upgrade servers and perform operating system migrations. We migrate Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2011, 2012 to the latest server operating system. Migration includes the intact transfer of Active Directory user accounts, mailboxes and data.


Workstations

We supply, install and configure PCs, workstations, laptops, tablets, smart phones and other devices that allow staff to work more productively with the latest technology. Because of the relationships we've established with major manufacturers like Dell, HP, Viglen, Canon, HTC, Draytek, ZyXEL, Lenovo and Cisco we are able to supply hardware and software at unbeatable prices. Businesses not only benefit from expert procurement advice but also save money and receive better post-sales support. We also repair, upgrade and replace equipment as required.


Network monitoring

We design and implement industry-leading monitoring systems that continually probe and report on an organisation's network to ensure optimal, continued operation. Network devices have availability, health and other outputs measured 24 hours a day to verify their operational status. This provides an on-site or remote IT administrator with a real-time overview of the network's operational health as well as the status of individual devices. They also receive automatically generated text and email alerts when issues on the network arise allowing them to take immediate action to prevent downtime. The industry-leading IT infrastructure monitoring system we deploy is fully customisable in terms of the level and depth of monitoring that takes place. This allows us to design the system to meet the requirements of individual clients. Examples of deployment are:
