Server Maintenance for Colchester, Braintree & Witham - Essex

A Windows Server / File Server is the heart of each network, and its hardware and software must be tailored to your business requirements. Your network and Server must be properly maintained to function properly and avoid system downtime or loss of critical data.
Server maintenance involves keeping a server software updated and running so that a computer network can operate smoothly.

Regular preventive maintenance will keep the Server, SQL and any other mission-critical software running as expected this avoiding a total or partial network failure.

Server maintenance tasks include performance, security, update, backup and best practice reviews. We ensure that automated system monitoring utilities are properly installed and configured, identifying potential security risks and backing up data at regular intervals.

Dylan IT built me a monster gaming rig as per my specification. I came to Dylan with a rough idea of what I wanted and that idea was ever so slightly polished, then it was built. I had Dylan IT build my rig in a clear perspex box that other companies wanted nothing to do with as it was deemed 'too finicky'. I love looking over my desk at this work of art. All the LED lighting and neatly laid cables have all been constructed with care and attention. I would recommend Dylan IT very highly indeed!
