IT Infrastructure Services

Technologies are changing the way our clients do business today. How they innovate, serve customers and speed new products and services to market. The question is, will IT infrastructures be ready to support these technologies like cloud, analytics, mobile, social and others? Will businesses be able to unlock the value of their IT assets?

Having an agile IT infrastructure require technology to be able to flex and respond to marketplace change. Too often, though, technologies are straining infrastructure capabilities, sometimes to the breaking point.

At Cactoz, we believe that infrastructure needs to get smarter. It needs to become intelligent so it can adapt to changing business needs and even anticipate and stay ahead of them. An intelligent infrastructure is one that:

  • Knows when the business needs extra capacity, and warns it about future needs.
  • Optimizes the IT environment based on performance and cost-effectiveness.
  • Connects and configures devices automatically.
  • Senses problems and fixes them.

We can help our clients navigate the journey to design, build and operate the intelligent infrastructure they need to support and underpin their business objectives and evolve to next generation IT.

Virtualization

Companies today are looking at server virtualization as a way of reducing financial and operational costs. Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (not physical) version of hardware, software, memory, storage, data and network.

Virtualization allows multiple virtual servers to consolidate and run on a single physical machine, with each virtual server sharing the resources of that one physical machine across multiple environments. Different virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications on the same physical machine.

Who Needs This?

  • Companies who are using older application versions and do not wish to buy multiple licenses for the outdated application
  • Companies who wish to reduce server hardware footprint
  • Companies who wish to implement IT Continuity Plan
Cactoz provides client with a holistic view of virtualization and advice on how to effectively implement for our client’s IT environment. The virtualization tools we used to integrate for clients are mainly VMWare or Hyper-V that enables organizations to realize cost savings through server consolidation and improve operating expenses through automation.

Protecting your business - Disaster Recovery

In today’s world having an effective data back up and disaster recovery solution in place can be the difference between a business with bright future and one that may just close shop. Companies that lose their own data, or even worse, their customer’s data, can face long disruptions to key business functions and lawsuits. Management has to work with the IT Department and the Business Continuity team to develop a credible disaster recovery plan if they hope to stay in business for the long term.

Disaster Recovery functionality should provide ease of use, quick and effective processes to ensure user’s environments suffer the least amount of downtime and continue to operate with minimal interruption.

In Cactoz we help our customers by provide solutions to plan ahead with either CA or Symantec Disaster recovery solution.

CA ARCserve Backup Disaster Recovery option lets you restore your server reliably, making more efficient use of time by taking you from boot media, to backup media, to an operational state and allows users with minimal server configuration experience to recover sophisticated systems. CA ARCserve Backup DR Option includes support for Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE). Enabling you to prepare computers for Windows installations, copy disk images from network shared folders, and initiate Windows setup.

Symantec Disaster Recovery Solutions address both physical and virtual environments ensuring critical data, applications, and complete systems are protected no matter what. This reduces the complexity of managing heterogeneous server and storage platforms, reduces the costs of building and managing the disaster recovery infrastructure, and provides a single console to recover from in the event of a disaster.
