We work with you and available Monitoring, Metrics, & Alerting insights to determine appropriate actions to address Capacity aspects. Are your Linux systems running really slow? Do you keep running out of storage space and do not know why? Are you unsure what kind of resources to allocate to a new Linux project? Do you have any over-allocated Linux Systems? Our Capacity Planning addresses these aspects and so much more for new and existing Linux systems.
Fleet & Patch Management
We work with you to improve your existing Linux Fleet Management Systems, or build out new ones. Whether your Linux Endpoints are Servers, Desktops, Laptops, Workstations, or Embedded Devices, we have you covered. Linux Fleet & Patch Management increases reliability, security, reduces administrative overhead & cost, while also providing additional insights across your fleet. How many Linux endpoints do you want to manage? 50? 500? 5000? More?
Monitoring, Metrics, & Alerting
Monitoring of Linux Systems produces useful Metrics that provide short and long term benefitis. In the short term Monitoring & Metrics enable you to evaluate the impact of recent changes to your systems, as well as enable Alerting of immeddiate problems. In the long term Monitoring & Metrics provides critical insights that enable successful Capacity Planning. Such as identifying system usage patterns, resource contention, and cost savings opportunities.
Backups & Restorations
Our Backups & Restorations capabilities for Linux are highly flexible and reliable. We only treat Backups as reliable if we can regularly prove they have successful Restorations. When we work with you on your Backup needs, we consider regular Restoration Validations of your Backups to be a requirement for success. We also provide multiple-tiers of Backup capabilities, including ZFS Snapshots, Proxmox VE Backups, SMB Network Share Version History, and so much more.
We work with you to determine if migrating from your existing Hypervisor (VMWare, Hyper-V, etc) to Proxmox makes sense, and what it would take to accomplish. If we agree that such a migration makes sense, we then work with you to migrate your important Virtual Machines to Proxmox, and also validate success post-migration. There are many reasons where Proxmox does and does not make sense, and we look forward to exploring that with your own interests.
