Technical Services

Enhancing your business agility calls for a stable yet flexible IT infrastructure that helps you react quickly to changing business conditions.

This infrastructure needs to be consistently available, widely scalable, readily manageable and highly secure.

Helping our customers streamline and future-proof their technology investment, our infrastructure solutions encompass:

  • thin client and virtualisation deployments
  • server consolidation
  • real-time disaster recovery and hosting services

 

Thin Client and Virtualisation Deployments

Virtualisation allows applications to be deployed in real-time to any client from a virtual application server.

It removes the need for local installation of the applications. All application data is permanently stored on the virtual application server. Whichever software is needed is either streamed or locally cached from the application server on demand and run locally.

There are many compelling reasons for businesses to consider the introduction of a thin client or virtual computing model, built upon the latest Remote Desktop Services (RDS) technology in Microsoft’s Windows server 2008 R2/2012 and other deployment technologies such as Citrix.

The benefits include:

  • cost of operation
  • cost of hardware
  • ease of management
  • reduced exposure to risk

 

Server Consolidation

By consolidating a large number of under-utilised legacy servers to a small number of Intel Xeon™ based servers, you can save valuable time and money on support and administration.

We can provide advice on the most suitable process for server consolidation, including:

  • proof of concept
  • server sizing and capacity planning
  • regression testing
  • implementation
  • quality assurance
  • day-to-day management and support

 

Real-time Disaster Recovery and Hosting Services

Business continuity or real-time disaster recovery is one of the key services that we can provide either at your chosen location or at our data centre.

We recommend servers that are configured with proven, best-of-breed software products to provide the most comprehensive business continuity solution available. Having the optimum combination of products allows us to duplicate the production IT infrastructure, replicate data in real time and deploy applications to any user in any location.

Applications residing on this business continuity infrastructure can be deployed to users using Windows 2008 R2/2012 Remote Desktop Services (RDS), or Terminal Services for older applications that are not supported on Windows 2008 R2/2012.

RDS securely deploys virtually any application to any PC or laptop based at any location, through a web browser using low bandwidth links or the internet. Alternatively, existing Citrix licenses can be used for this component of the service.
