Virtual Servers

This option allows you to have one physical server and yet run multiple servers for your company, thereby reducing costs for hardware. For example, you can have an Exchange server, File server and an application server, like Goldmine or Sage, all running on the same box. Disaster recovery is made easy with whole server backup and restore to new hardware. 

 

Online Services

The cloud is always in reach with both on-line backup, Exchange services and Office 365. We have partnered with Carbonite and Intronis to provide on-line backup options. As Microsoft partners we can set up Exchange on-line services for all your e-mail needs. And for cheaper then you might think. 

 

Migration from Small Business Server (SBS)

Several small businesses, including our clients, have used SBS for several years until Microsoft had discontinued it. We can migrate you to a new server with the services your company needs.
