Make infrastructure the core of your business continuity

Introduction

Some of Ireland’s best known leading brands have trusted our team to design, project manage, install and support
their network infrastructure across all their locations.

Whether our cloud solutions or our server solutions are the right fit for your company, your infrastructure is a core aspect of your network. This is often overlooked and we have found this to be the biggest cause of poor business continuity. The first thing we do for all our clients is to examine their infrastructure, find the problems and come up with solutions.

THE ORTUS 5 STEPS TO THE PERFECT INFRASTRUCTURE

1. We Consult

All your systems have to work together and all inefficiencies such as staff entering data into multiple systems need to be weeded out and removed. These inefficiencies are costing you money every day. We consult with you, your team, your software vendors, your electricians, your CCTV company, access control systems, your telecoms providers and anyone else involved in your business to assess your needs and issues. We establish what your business requirement is and how your infrastructure can accommodate it.

Items such as your companies:

  • Remote access strategy
  • Security requirement
  • Disaster recovery
  • Business continuity
  • Forecasted growth
  • Possible integration or replacement of current systems

2. We Test

Armed with the results from our consultancy we test your existing infrastructure, find the problems, continue to liaise with third parties to find solutions and document our findings.

We test the following:

  • Failover systems including backup power supplies
  • Cable infrastructure
  • Link speeds
  • Networking issues
  • Broadband performance & redundancy
  • VPNs
  • Security
  • End Point configuration
  • Data protection
  • Disaster recovery

3. We Design

Having completed our consultancy and tested your system we can start drawing up a schematic of how your sites infrastructure could look. This may be as simple as fixing a few standard issues or it could mean proposing a new solution.

Typically there are two clear options with a list of advantages and disadvantages of each option. Budgets are paramount but security and stability should not be compromised. Once this has been done its time for all parties to consult once more to decide the best solution. All Ortus’s infrastructure designs include options for redundancy and failover to maximise business continuity wherever possible and to offer a disaster recovery plan.


4 . We Implement

Our starting point on a rollout plan is to choose a completion date along with our clients. We use our design and advanced project management systems to document a step by step plan that is driven by tasks and time deadlines. We provide Tier 3 infrastructure engineers to rollout our projects and our hard working task driven team don’t miss deadlines.


5. We Manage & Monitor

Our core strength is your core infrastructure. We thrive on the management of your systems and we treat the uptime of your infrastructure as a matter of life and death.

An infrastructure needs to be monitored with alerts and have redundancy in order to be managed. In Ortus we install equipment with the technology to be monitored remotely and remotely accessed to minimize risk and downtime. Clients with recommended systems experience over 99.95% uptime because of this.
