Support legacy Linux/Unix Systems

We have come into environments where the business has Unix based servers (Linux, IBM AIX, HP UX, Solaris, *BSD) running a mission critical application. These may be supplied by a big name vendor (eg. IBM, HP, Sun) or simply constructed with commonly available parts.

Because these systems tend to be incredibly reliable, some of them might be old by today’s standards, yet still fulfilling their function within the business. Finding support for these machines can be difficult; many IT companies are only willing to support the most common systems available at the moment. However, the right experienced engineers with a solid background in these platforms can take care of these systems easily.

In one instance the server was an IBM pSeries running AIX, previously serviced by IBM. The server was responsible for running a mission critical CMS application at the core of the business information processing. In this instance we were able to supply ongoing support for the server for a reasonable rate helping our reputation as leaders in Network support Melbourne The client can continue to run their mission critical application with the assurance that any issues will be supported well into the future, something very important to the business.

In another instance, we came into an environment with a FreeBSD server running on commodity hardware, and were asked to address a problem with that server. Unfortunately the cause was a serious hardware failure made worse by poor maintenance practices. We assessed all the factors and decided that replacing the entire server with one running proper server hardware and Fedora Linux, and transferring across the old server’s data and functions was the best course of action. This server has since been reliable and proactively services by the leaders in computer support Melbourne – IT Switch.
