Servers: Not as scary as they seem

If you own your own business, you’re more than likely running your own Server…sometimes without even realizing it. Your company website, the local file share, and even that trusty desktop you do accounting on, all run on hardware that function as a server. We may not think of them that way, but that’s exactly what they are. These machines serve as the lifeblood of your company and should be treated as such. I’ll assess your current environment and provide you with solutions that will ensure your servers are optimized and running smoothly.
 
Implementation

Interested in purchasing a Server for your company, but unsure where to start? Already took the plunge, but need someone to get everything up and running? I’ll take care of all of this for you and make sure your Server’s software, drivers and settings are optimized for your environment. I’ll take the time to document and walk you through everything you need to know about your new Server so you’re secure in the knowledge you made the right choice for your company.
 

Checklist

Migration

If you have an aging Server you want to upgrade or you’re looking to implement a new company-wide application to replace one that’s past its prime, I’ll design, plan and implement your new environment and make your transition as seamless as possible. I’m an expert at meticulously planning migrations and have the skill to account for any gotchas that can derail your upgrade. Carefully planning migrations will limit any downtime you experience and will keep you and your employees from needing to take any unexpected vacations (unless you need one of course 😉).
 
Disaster Recovery

When Servers are running well, you never give them a second thought. The moment they go down however, they can be your worst nightmare. I can provide you with a Disaster Recovery plan that will let you rest easy knowing your data is secure. From simple Data Backups to complicated scenarios that require 24/7 uptime, I’ll architect a Disaster Recovery plan tailored to your environment. I’ll also make sure every plan is thoroughly tested and walk you through the recovery procedures so you’ll be prepared when the worst happens.
 
Systems Monitoring

As the number of Servers in your environment grows, keeping all of them running smoothly can start to take up a big chunk of your time. Anyone who’s experienced the crash of a crucial system like an Email or Web server knows how an event like this can bring your company’s workday to a grinding halt. The key to preventing these catastrophic failures is Monitoring. Receiving critical alerts as they happen allows you to stay on top of potential failures before they become major problems. These alerts also help you to address non-critical issues that prevent your Server from running at its best. If you’ve already faced one of these disasters or would like to get a better grasp on your environment, I’ll show you how Monitoring can keep you one step ahead.
