HAVING AN I.T. JUST BECAME AFFORDABLE
Running a business is difficult enough without worrying about your technology. That being said, it's often not realistic to staff an IT full, or even part time. We build a plan for your business, large or small, that covers only what you need. You can pay per incident, have a monthly maintenance plan, or have a full service plan with help desk support for your staff. Set up a business consultation to have us come to your location, meet your staff, and get an overview of your systems and services. Our consultations and our advice always comes free. Below are just a few of the things we can take off your hands with a managed services plan.
It’s never a matter of “if” your hard drive will fail, but “when”. That’s why it’s so important that you not only backup but regularly check if that the backup is being completed successfully. Luckily, with Golden State Monitoring, we do all the checking so you don’t have to. We will alert you if we see the backups not being performed as expected.
Keeping a computer running at it’s peak performance is easy with Golden State Monitoring. We’ll alert you to productivity-robbing issues such as failing laptop batteries, kernel panics, faulty RAM, unscheduled reboots, and even failed power-on self-tests (POST) which usually go unnoticed.
More often than not, what defines a server is the software that runs on it. Golden State Monitoring checks on that software to make sure it’s operating correctly and will report critical information such as availability, utilization, license expirations, proper backup functionality, and more. We can even monitor applications of your choice and alert you if they stop running.
Slow network performance can be caused by things like poor cable quality, failing network hardware, or even your ISP having a bad day. We’ll help narrow down the cause by alerting you when there’s an excessive number of network errors. We can even let you know when a computer’s IP address changes.
Running low on disk space can happen suddenly and when it does, it has real potential to corrupt a system and cause data loss. Golden State Monitoring can alert you well before that ever happens. We’ll also alert you to any disk input/output (I/O) errors (a precursor to a drive failure), boot disk selection changes, false mounts, and more.
In todays world Macs and PCs alike are susceptible to malware attacks. While Windows and Mac OS X have malware prevention systems built-in, malware creators often find ways to circumvent their security. Golden State monitoring provides an extra layer of security, complete with alerts.
