As Open Source software is free of charge you only pay for our setup
and support fees. Linux servers are renowned for being highly secure, and are impervious to Windows viruses.
Works with Windows
Linux servers can easily integrate with your existing Windows network.
With Open Source software, as it's free, you won't have to pay for software upgrades.
We can check and administer your server remotely, removing the need for
expensive site visits. This also guarantees a fast response time to any
issues/requirements you may have.
Servers are configured with RAID-1 mirroring for minimal downtime: if
the hard disk on your server dies you can immediately reboot into the
secondary disk which is an exact replica.
Overnight backups over a secure connection can transfer all
changes made on your server during the day. Backups can be made to a server hosted with us, or to a backup server at a location of your choice.
We can provide replica servers, where your data is not only backed up but is transferred to a working replica of your live server. If a disaster occurs you can immediately replace the main server without having to rebuild it and restore from backup data.
Our main aim is to make sure your network is secure, and that access to sensitive data is protected.
We will frequently check your server remotely to ensure that it is
healthy, and that all necessary updates are applied.
