Most businesses in the Twin Cities metro area rely on Window Server technology to build internal networks that manage users, control access, and set security policies and share resources. At the heart of Window Server technology is the network domain. As a top-rated Minnesota IT services company, businesses often call us in when their computer network system is not functioning properly or when data loss or compromise has occurred. The sad truth is that many companies that cannot afford an in-house IT staff often neglect proper maintenance and management of their network domains. While our experienced, certified engineers can return their domains to proper operation, it’s almost always more costly to fix problems than to prevent them with regular, ongoing domain management.
As the the leading on-demand computer tech support company in Minneapolis St. Paul, we recommend forming an ongoing maintenance plan that manages and monitors your network status and performance, to prevent costly failures and to protect your business from potential disastrous data breaches and losses. Only regular management, updates and maintenance can keep your network productive and secure. With regular monitoring, attention to problems early in their development and regular updates of Microsoft Windows Server software, you can avoid the potentially high costs of productivity reductions, network instability and data security and backup lapses.
Regular Domain Monitoring and Diagnostics
Our certified Windows Services engineers can monitor your network domain on a regular basis, either remotely or at your location. This allows us to spot and correct developing problems early, before they become serious. We can eliminate traffic bottlenecks, configuration issues, and identify management issues that require attention. Compared to the cost of correcting advanced problems, our services are highly cost-effective and assure you of continuous operation with no downtime. Call us to set up a monitoring program designed especially for your domain environment.
Domain Update Management and Automation Services
If, like most Minnesota businesses, your network domain is based on Microsoft Windows Server technology, you may not realize that Microsoft releases updates and revisions on a regular basis to correct bugs and to enhance data security and other issues. While some of these updates can be automated, other updates must be manually installed. Any Windows Server domain that goes without being updated regularly becomes more and more vulnerable to malicious attacks from outside and potential operability issues over time. We are constantly notified of updates from Microsoft and can install them on a timely basis for our clients. We also configure domains we manage to automatically install minor updates as they are released. It’s essential to keep your Windows Server domain up to date.
Server Migration and Upgrade
Every few years, Microsoft releases a new version of its Windows Server software. Each major release includes new features, more powerful capabilities, and better security and date management features. Typically, Microsoft continues to support previous versions for several years, as well, and continues to release updates, revisions, and security enhancements. Migrating from an earlier version of Windows Server to a more recent one requires considerable work and technical expertise. Often, that migration is not needed immediately, as long as Microsoft continues to support the version currently installed. When a migration is desirable or to take advantage of new features and security improvements, our certified Windows Server engineers will advise our clients and perform the migration efficiently and cost-effectively, with a minimum of downtime and disruption.
Windows Server 2003 Migration
Thousands of businesses in the Minneapolis St. Paul area and nationally have network domains still running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or 2003 R2. Microsoft ended support for that version in July, 2015. No further operational updates, revisions or security updates will be made. If your network domain is still running Server 2003, its vulnerability increases daily. It is essential that you migrate now to minimize your risks. We recommend a migration to Windows Server 2012 R2 as soon as possible. There is no automated migration process available between those versions. Our engineers have been busy performing these migrations for our clients in the Twin Cities. Contact us right away to schedule this service. We’ll gladly provide you with a cost estimate and assure you that we will migrate your domain efficiently, correctly, and with a minimum of disruption of your operations.
