Servers

Virtualization, migration, and buildouts, oh my!

A server is a powerful computer that provides services to other computers, often called clients, that are connected either locally or over the internet. Essentially, servers provide your business with a centralized data repository that your team can access to take advantage of various applications, information, and tools.

 

All Shapes & Sizes

Servers can refer to either physical, virtual, or cloud-hosted machines and though they can provide multiple services at once they are typically dedicated to a single application or function such as mail or remote desktop services. Depending on how you use them, servers can be an extremely powerful tool for your business.

What Can a Server Do for Your Business? 

 Servers offer an easy way to manage, organize, and secure business-critical applications and data while also providing your team with a centralized location to easily share and access information. 

Organize

Managing all the various tools and applications your company uses in-house can be difficult, when information is scattered across a sprawling network, it's impossible. Servers compartmentalize your infrastructure, helping to create a single pane of glass, in which you can clearly visualize your entire network so you to make more informed decisions regarding your technology. 

Secure

Servers offer advanced security features like redundant hardware components and remote access encryption to better protect your mission-critical applications. By centralizing your data storage, servers offer an easier way to backup critical business data so you can recover in the event of a data breach or restore files if something is accidentally deleted or misplaced. 

Scale

Your IT needs to keep pace with the demands of your business. Servers facilitate growth allowing you to quickly create new user accounts, set up workstations, and seamlessly deploy applications and software across your network. With secure remote access your team can work from anywhere and still take advantage of all the tools and technology your business offers. 


Services We Provide 

With virtualization, you can divide up a physical server's resources and allocate them to separate virtual servers each capable of running its own OS and managing independent workloads. This can drastically cut down on your need for physical hardware and maintenance as a single physical server can host multiple virtual machines at the same time. 

Whether you are upgrading to something more robust, moving to the cloud, or simply decommissioning failing hardware, our team can help transfer data from one server to another whether it be physical, virtualized, or cloud-based. We meticulously plan each phase of your migration to ensure no data gets lost in the process. 

With over 25 years of experience designing and building servers, there isn't much our team can't accommodate when it comes to customizing your solution. It all comes down to what you'd like to accomplish, with the only real limitation being your budget. 

Configure multiple servers to work together as a single system to provide high availability and minimize downtime. With clustering, your workloads and applications will automatically failover and reallocate resources in the event of a network outage or a system failure.
