Server Migration

migrate_picWhether you need a more modern software package to support your business needs or your existing hardware is reaching end–of-life, upgrading or replacing vital pieces of your IT system can be a nerve-wracking process.

BlueCompute can hold your hand throughout the process, from defining the requirements and specifying the hardware and software through to completion.  We’ve extensive experience in migrating systems across a variety of Windows and Linux platforms.

Virtualization

Virtualisation is more than just the latest IT buzzword – the practice of running multiple segregated operating systems on one server has huge potential for increased efficiency.  Instead of running a physical machine for each server, we can run many virtual servers on one modern machine with increased reliability and thus better up-time.

Physical–to–virtual migrations (P2V) can deliver drastic benefits in terms of reliability and flexibility.  Our extensive experience with physical-to–physical and physical–to–virtual migrations lets us take the guesswork out of change.  We can supply the right hardware and software for the job and liaise with other software suppliers to deliver quick and painless migrations.

Small Business Server

Many of our customers have been using Microsoft’s Small Business Server package for many years.  This bundle offered very affordable licensing for email, file serving, remote access and credential management, but has now been discontinued, with Windows SBS 2011 the last of that product line.
Small businesses need to plan for a different approach in the future, with many services now ‘cloud-based’.  BlueCompute can help transition from in-house to cloud services for email (Google Apps, Office 365),  storage (Dropbox, Skydrive, Google Drive) and more.
