Server upgrades and migrations

Are you currently in a Microsoft 2000 or 2003 environment? Do you have multiple services that cost a lot to maintain and support? Have you considered moving your servers to a virtualized foundation or dedicated data center but are unsure? Do your business critical servers go down frequently or are the warranties expired?

The IT team at Stratosphere Networks can design, build, implement, and support all your simple and complex server needs. Common server requests include domain controller, file server (FTP), application server, terminal server, and virtualized server. We know that your servers are critical to your business as any outage of these devices can impact your business company wide. Our network operations center can fully monitor and manage your services and other critical devices simply and easily 24/7/365.

Looking to migrate your email server? One common request focuses around email migration. Whether you are upgrading the operating system on the email server, or moving your email to another server (onsite or hosted), we can help. Our project managers provide full end to end coverage to manage these tedious projects. Email migration if done incorrectly can be a nightmare. Most of our competitors do not handle email migration projects properly. Turn to the Stratosphere team to manage your email migration project.

Do you have two location and two servers and need to replicate or mirror? 80% of the clients that start getting services from Stratosphere that do have replication or mirrored servers in place are not functioning properly. Replication or mirroring can be broke for a number of reasons. When we on-board a new client we ensure this is properly working, perform data replication tests and setup alarms to our network operations center to ensure this continues to stay working.

Are you a new startup and considering to implement a virtual server or on-premise server? This is a big decision to new business owners. Our IT consultants work with you to review both solutions and provide pros and cons analysis to ensure you have the right information to make the proper decision for your business. Microsoft has SBS or Small Business Server that maxes out at 75 users for small startups which might be an attractive option for in-house solution or elect from one of our virtual servers and hosted exchange.

Microsoft Windows Server Patches: Windows server patches are a headache for any business. From time to time patches halt other business applications. Our comprehensive IT managed service plan allows for us to take over the Windows Server Patch management and provide both automatic and manual intervention as needed to ensure patches are deployed uniformly and they work.


If you have an upcoming server project or simply looking to get better server management, contact the IT professionals at Stratosphere Networks and we can help.
