If you have more than one computer in the company, it is only natural that you would want to connect them to a network, ensuring a faster documents exchange, e-mail exchange, shared resources usage (printers, Internet access, etc.). Using servers also makes it easier: all documents and data are saved in one place, facilitating their backup, you can manage the entire network from one place, data security is increased. And all this works not only in your building, but can consolidate all your outlets at home and abroad.
Small computer networks are relatively easy to design and maintain. But even when the number of computers exceeds the number of five, problems may occur, such as congestion and slow performance, interruptions, data loss, etc.. Every serious company needed a robust operational system, which will not allow the malfunction, in one of the parallel processes, to be reflected one onto the other, a system that at the same time ensures high data security from unauthorized access, as well as easy connection to the rest of the network.
Server virtualization refers to the process of transferring physical servers to virtualized servers. Time server that has so far performed the job of launching applications becomes a virtualization host , while the applications that have until now ran on several physical servers in most cases we can consolidate in a virtualized environment to a smaller number of servers, so as to maximize their performance.
Supervision and servers management
Since most companies don't have IT staff specialized in server management, IPC provides supervision and server infrastructure management. Supervision is carried out remotely, using professional tools for 24/7 monitoring, which are can predict some of the problems before they occur and address them in order to avoid delay in infrastructure work. In addition to monitoring services, we offer the service of servers recovery in the event that the server stops working properly.
Upgrading and server migration
As new versions of operating systems are coming out every 2-3 years, it is not so uncommon to find servers with operating systems as old as several generations in the production work. There are several reasons why such a thing is not recommended and the biggest are undermined safety, incompatibility to newer versions of applications and the lack of modern functionality. As a prerequisite for the proper and safe operation of the server, we recommend that the version of operating system you are using are no older than two generations from a current version and we offer services of servers upgrades (both the operating system and the firmware).
