Server Management

What is Server Management?

Server Management is comprised of the configuration of hardware, software management, server security and data backups for physical and virtual servers. With Server Management, a Managed Services Provider monitors and maintains company servers to ensure they are secure, run at optimal performance levels, and meet the organization’s needs.   

Server Management from WIN includes:

  • Hardware Configuration designs servers to meet business needs and ensures that appropriate resources are in place. This includes the Central Processing Unit (CPU), memory or hard drive space, and appropriate redundancy.
  • Proactive Monitoring identifies developing server-related issues and performance trends.
  • Software Management involves remote checks, installing updates, and working with application vendors to ensure that software is functioning as designed.  
  • Server Security stays on top of all software and firmware updates, firewalls, antivirus software, password policies, access controls, and encryption.
  • Data Backups includes local, cloud and server backup software.
  • Reporting of regular updates on server performance including data gathered during the monitoring process.
  • Remote Support is available 24 hours a day during the week. In addition, an IT professional is on call to provide emergency weekend support.
