Server Setups

  • We assist in deciding which server architecture to use for your environment, there are many factors to consider such as performance, scalability, availability, reliability, cost, and ease of management.

Some of the solutions which we have offered are:

  • Everything On One Server : The entire environment resides on a single server. A common variation of this setup is a Windows, Application, Intranet Portal, Database, Shared Folders, on a single server.

  • Multi Task Multiple Servers : The database management system (DBMS) can be separated from the rest of the environment to eliminate the resource contention between the application and the database, and to increase security and avoid unnecessary load on the server.

  • Load Balancer or Fault tolerant server : Load balancers can be added to a server environment to improve performance and reliability by distributing the workload across multiple servers. If one of the servers that is load balanced fails, the other servers will handle the incoming traffic until the failed server becomes healthy again.

  • Replication Servers : One way to improve performance of a system is to use master-slave replication servers. Master-slave replication requires a master and one or more slave node. In this setup, all updates are sent to the master node and reads can be distributed across all nodes

  • Let Someone Else have a Server - Consider the cloud : Do you really need server ? There may be something comforting about having your servers on site and easily accessible, but to get the most out of your IT infrastructure you really should consider tapping into the power of the cloud. The huge range of cloud-based services available with all the expertise on hand from the companies that offer them, means you can be comfortable in the knowledge that servers being run in cloud-powering data centers are robust and come with a host of fail-safes considering of private versus public clouds.
