Server Hardware

Server Design

Most people think servers are a commodity.  You call up Dell or HP and tell them you want a server and you receive it a couple days later.  In some cases that may be the truth, but in most cases, when it comes to small and medium sized businesses, server have to be carefully designed to meet your needs, especially with the Virtualization and advanced backup solutions now available.

We have been designing servers before it was fashionable to be a server designer, back when it was the only way to get a decent server.  We use quality Intel, Tyan and Super Micro motherboards with Intel CPU's and quality parts throughout.  We warranty our system parts for at least 3 years, some 5 years, and 1-3 years labor.

Yes, we do sell Dell, Lenovo and HP servers that are custom built to meet our customer's needs.  In fact, we use HP servers for our SystemPulse management system.

We do require that servers be in a climate controlled environment and attached to a UPS, so as not to void the warranty.

Virtualization

Virtualization is a way of life in the computer industry.  You've seen the ads where a large computer room is reduced to one rack.  We've been excited about virtualization since VMware first came out and we have tried desperatley to stay on top of all the changes that occur.  Because of the speed at which this industry is changing, we had to make a choice.  VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V.  We chose Hyper-V because it is the best, most cost effective fit for small and medium sized businesses while VMware is geared for data centers and larger businesses.

Virtualization isn't just for Servers.  Workstations can be virtualized too, potentially reducing maintenance and management costs.  Talk to us about what is going on in Virtualization and how it could have a positive impact on your business.
