Windows Server is the most popular Server platform in the world, it offers enterprise features to businesses of all sizes. We can help with migration from earlier versions of Windows Server or building new Windows Server infrastructure to support your business or hybrid solutions with stretched datacentres between your site and Azure.
Hyper-V provides the perfect virtualisation platform for the business looking to move away from physical servers. We can provide consultancy, design and implantation of Hyper-V and its sister products within System Center.
Installation and Design
Installing a Windows server can be as simple as pressing a few clicks of a mouse and you have a server running. However the potential provided by the Windows Server platform means that proper design and implementation will provide your business a scalable platform that can be scaled out as your business grows. These days the servers don’t have to be hosted at your site, they can be built on Azure within the IaaS service. This has the added bonus that you don’t need to purchase a Windows Server license as this cost is part of the monthly subscription cost. Whether your planning your first Windows Server or are upgrading your existing infrastructure we can help. With many years experience in the Windows Server arena, since Windows NT 3.5, we’ll be able to assist you to get the most from your investment. Active directory, Windows Update Service, DNS, DHCP, IIS, PowerShell, Storage Pools, Backup, Patching are just a few of the services we can help with.
Windows OS upgrades can be a challenge and can cause headaches. We can help you plan your migration and even do the migration for you if you prefer. Working closely with you to ensure that business impact is kept to a minimum.
Microsoft Hyper-V has been a big player in the virtualisation market over the past 5 years. The cost savings with virtualisation are very real, however it doesn’t come without risks. Ensuring that your system is always available involves building high availability clusters to support your virtual server environment. This can be costly and if done incorrectly may not perform the task it was designed to do. Hyper-V is also a great choice if the business is looking at Azure in the future as Hyper-V VMs are supported by Azure, they can even be managed by Azure if desired. This all helps to reduce support overheads and streamline moving to the cloud. If you are looking at virtualisation we can help you decide if its the right path for you, offer design and implementation services if required.
