We specialise in major IT infrastructure environments and have expertise across software, database, hardware, storage and network.
Our goal is to help our clients build and manage highly reliable IT infrastructures.
Our engineers are industry certified and backed by real world experience in large-scale, highly complex and critical environments. They are ideally positioned to assess technological needs and to integrate strategic change without upsetting the systems already in place.
We provide services such as infrastructure audit, systems integration, security strengthening, data protection and availability, software specification and testing and trustworthy general advice.
Companies can achieve better productivity if their IT is properly designed and aligned to the objectives. Unfortunately, the technology landscape is constantly evolving and, at the same time, businesses grow and change. What was purchased and implemented just a few years ago might today be holding it back from bigger and better achievements. Or maybe it is just poorly configured or not used to its full potential, only delivering a portion of its overall capacity.
Companies engage into professional, vendor independent audits for various reasons that include:
- Ensuring that servers and storage are properly configured for both efficiency and security.
- Looking for any hardware, databases or software specific productivity drains that can cause frequent problems, like slowness or service interruption.
- Ensuring Security measures are adequate for viruses, spyware, Internet perimeter intrusion detection & prevention (firewall), data security, passwords, encryption, etc.
- Looking for flaws when compared to industry best practice.
- Ensuring backup systems are adequate configured, executed, monitored and tested.
We offer a 360-degree audit service that covers the following areas and can be customised to your specific needs:
- Hardware and software asset listing, including Operating System versions and security/bug/service pack patching
- Analysis of Environmental conditions for equipment including heat and power protection
- Network design analysis, including security
- Analysis of Server configuration with regards to appropriateness, performance, levels of redundancy and any associated risks
- Skills and competencies gap analysis, from leadership to operational staff
- Backup systems hardware, software, data sets, disaster readiness and risks
In each area we identify critical business safety or efficiency issues and make clear, actionable recommendations that can be implemented by yourself or your technical partner of choice.
Organisations are challenged on their path to growth by complex technologies and a rapidly evolving business environment with highly informed customers, unclear business boundaries, innovative revenue channels and changing cost structures. To succeed, they must achieve operational excellence while maximizing efficiency and reducing costs.
There is a pronounced need to understand the complexities of the IT environment and ensure that the technology is in line with business objectives, quickly providing tangible results.
Our Systems Integration service uses a pragmatic approach to build IT infrastructure that helps organisations address their critical business needs. Our proven approach combines consultancy, technical implementation and project management to ensure that all dependencies are managed to meet the project objectives. Our integration services cover the following areas:
- Architecture and Capacity Planning
- Platforms and storage (IBM, HP, Dell)
- Operating Systems (Unix, AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, Linux, Microsoft, VMWare)
- Databases (Oracle, Informix)
- Network (CISCO)
- Monitoring (BMC, CA)
- Virtualisation (VMWare, LPAR)
Our process built over 15 years of experience is reflected in the success we have achieved in executing projects. Strategic alliances with leading technology players further enable us to deliver cost-effective integration services that are not only steady, scalable, smart, and innovative but also result oriented. Being a pure-play system Integrator, we deliver the best of breed solutions to customers with our vendor agnostic approach.
The world is changing at pace, and so too are the risks to your information assets and business. Online applications, cloud computing and mobility are the new technology paradigms that both the public and private sectors are adopting in growing numbers.
This is happening in a period where the value of information is increasingly considered a major organisational asset and in a global environment where the threat landscape has intensified and the likelihood of an unsolicited attack on an organisation’s information systems, regardless of size or industry, has increased significantly.
Accordingly, organisations are faced with the task of ensuring that their technology platforms are designed, integrated, and operationalised in a secure manner. The reality is that many of security breaches are the direct result of a weakness (or vulnerability) in technology, people or process.
To ensure that security objectives are met, stakeholders need to partner with a specialist security firm with proven capability and credentials in threat analysis, vulnerability assessment and solution design. Aequasys is that partner.
We specialise in installing and configuring secure firewalls, networking and wireless networking solutions, installing and hardened operating systems, running intrusion detection tests and prevention capabilities, Internet filtering and monitoring, etc.
Data Protection and Availability
In today's technological environment, data and application availability are critical for the continued operation of every business. Any network downtime can extract high costs in both time and money. Yet recent research has found that far too few businesses have a data protection and availability, including disaster recovery, plan in place to cope with an emergency such as fire, natural disaster or power loss.
Data protection is a complex area: it is confusing, things change all the time, and mistakes can have dramatic consequences. Lost data, missing client records, corrupted databases – some problems just can’t be fixed after the fact, which is why businesses must make sure they have a data protection and recovery plan in place before things go wrong.
Many businesses never recover if they are unable to recover essential data in the event of a major data loss event. And you may not be aware that many so-called “Data Recovery Systems” fail when they are most needed.
Our Data Protection and Availability service is a bulletproof solution to your data backup and recovery needs, providing several layers of redundancy to ensure that essential data is backed up and recoverable, no matter what happens.
Because we understand the law and how to apply it, our consultants can assess your current state of compliance, and how to improve your policies and procedures, surprisingly quickly. And we appreciate that you’ve got a job to do, so we’re respectful and unobtrusive.
Backup and Restoration
We specialize in design and implementation of centralized backup solutions in heterogeneous environments. Our service includes analyzing existing procedures and infrastructure, to providing assistance for the go-live process and long-term technical support.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
This service allows for the development of a Business Continuity Plan, including a Disaster Recovery Plan and a Crisis Management Plan – and then to ensure that they integrate with the Enterprise Risk Management Framework. It also includes setting up a Maintenance Schedule that will allow for regular review, relevancy and updating of the BCP.
