In brief, there are 3 types of server solutions to be considered:

Physical Server

Often this is the solution that best fits a small business. We can advise you on the unit that is required and once it arrives our team will install it and connect it to the correct operating system. Once configured it is ready to go but will require ongoing reboots and hardware upgrades. The Server will be built to last and should work efficiently for many years.
Our team will advise you on the best solution be it local attached storage, network attached storage or SAN based storage.

Virtual Server

This is an approach many businesses are now taking. Server consolidation has become the norm in today’s networks for businesses of all sizes. There are many benefits to consolidating the number of Windows servers in your environment by taking advantage of the many different server virtualization products (i.e. VMWare and Windows HypeV) on the market. These include reducing the number of physical servers which lowers your maintenance costs and freeing up space.

By having each application within its own virtual server you can prevent one application from impacting on another application when upgrades or changes are made. In addition, you can develop a standard virtual server build that can be easily duplicated, which will speed up server deployment. You can deploy multiple operating system technologies on a single hardware platform (i.e. Windows Server 2003, Linux, Windows 2008, Small Business Server 2011).

Technologies we use include the industry’s elite solutions for server hardware & storage from vendors such as Dell, HP, IBM, EMC and, on the software side from Microsoft, VMWare and Citrix.

Hosted Server Solutions

We believe that our virtual servers are the most efficient way to access additional server resources, be it to run your applications or to host websites and databases. Our virtual servers can either be set up as standalone or connected to your internal network remotely depending on the requirement

Because our virtual infrastructure is part of our cloud computing model, additional resources are available at the touch of a button. If you need more RAM, more CPU or more disk space, then all you have to No problem. Each virtual server has access to the full computing power of the grid, allowing you to simply add or remove resources when you need them.
Unlike dedicated servers, DNA IT’s virtual servers offer grid computing features, allowing you to expand or shrink your CPU, RAM and storage on the fly. It’s like having a super computer. Don’t get trapped in a fixed specification server model and take advantage of real cloud computing to increase any resources at the touch of a button, as and when you need more computing resources.
