At Evolvit, helping Bristol-based businesses scale and expand is our speciality.

Our IT professionals will install, administer and optimise your company servers to accommodate all your business needs.

A server is a powerful computer that provides IT services to users. These include email servers – allowing businesses to securely send and receive emails to and from your company domain, file servers – for fast local access to important company files and folders, backup servers – ensuring that your business has the most recent backups of changes to critical documents.

EvolvIT specialises in providing server support for various different server platforms including:

  • Microsoft Windows Server, for example, Small Business Server or SBS and Microsoft Exchange Server.
  • Mac OS X Server which provides services and applications such as user management, file sharing and collaboration tools.
  • Linux Servers – Linux servers come with various different software packages to manage them including Red Hat, Ubuntu and Apache. Linux servers are often used to host websites.

As servers become more powerful, they have enabled business users to host more and more services using the same server hardware. This means that you could have a single server at your business premises or at a colocation centre running acting as an application server, web server and mail server using something known as virtual machines.

The growing popularity and reliability of cloud computing mean that businesses are re-evaluating the use of on-site servers and the services they provide. At EvolvIT we can advise on the best strategy for your servers as well as supporting them.

Our support packages come with a wide range of services including:
