As businesses grow, their IT needs grow with them and evolve. For a small business, it’s often enough to start out with a single server; in many cases, a workstation can double as one at first. But as they grow and add to their customer base, the demand on that workstation becomes greater, and the need for one or even more dedicated servers arises.
Small Business Owners are very aware of the importance of technology and its applications in the business world today but that does not mean that every small business is in a position to establish their own IT department to watch over their servers and network, keeping up with upgrades and managing the general health of their hard- and software.
It’s at this point that many businesses begin looking at utilising outside professional services to manage their critical equipment, to keep servers running, customers happy, and business flowing. This article aims at helping you understand what server management is, what it usually covers and, more importantly, how your operations can benefit from using a management service.
What is Server Management?
What Are The Benefits of Using a Server Management Company?
- Monitoring – Your hardware gets monitored so that small issues are caught and corrected before they become big problems. We implement scheduled preventative maintenance to more effectively conduct advanced performance monitoring, key application maintenance and OS & 3rd party patch management.
- Optimisation – Your equipment gets the attention it needs to perform at its best. Management technicians examine your servers and find ways to increase performance to keep your customers delighted with your service whether you’re at one location or have several different branches.
- Security – Server management teams are responsible for keeping your systems secure. They keep the bad guys out by implementing managed anti-virus software and monitoring. You should be able to trust a good server management team so that your customers can trust you. Advanced Technology also supply a managed backup of your servers at regular intervals so none of your important data is lost in case of an emergency.
- Cost – One of the greatest benefits of contracting Advanced Technology for your server management duties is cost. You no longer have to worry about maintaining a large staff. A good server management provider will charge a fair price, and for that you’ll get a number of techs available to handle your needs any time, day or night.
