Systems Services

Monitoring is critical. Making sound infrastructure decisions requires knowing your current resource utilization, and growth rates. Performance tuning and load balancing requires knowing how your resources are being used. Resolving systems issues quickly and correctly requires insight into what is happening across all your systems. We are happy to review you existing practices and make suggestions to improve what you monitoring and how you monitor it. We can also offer full service monitoring and response services.

Business Continuity

Systems fail, plan for it. The plan should be dictated by your business needs. Some applications require always on availability, some are only used once a month. Some processes only need to retain data for the last few months, some require greater retention. We will help you identify the key components to your infrastructure, appropriate backup strategies, and the most appropriate way to restore services in the case of unplanned outages.

Configuration Management

How you manage configuration is key to the efficiency of your systems administration. For small environments it may be most cost effective and convenient to maintain configuration manually. As environments grow configuration management systems provide great efficiencies in more quickly updating large numbers of systems, deploying new hardware, and facilitating site rebuild disaster recovery scenarios. We can help you decide on the best practices for your business as well as implement them.
