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:

How Remote Hosted Desktops Enable SMB Growth

26th June 2020

An office-approved desktop that’s accessible to your entire workforce, no matter where they are or what device they’re using. This sounds like the productivity dream, especially in the wake of a pandemic that has forced many of us away from our offices and into remote working.

But it also sounds like a pricey dream; a boon that’s exclusive to enterprises and large companies with the budget to sink into IT projects. Some SMBs may also struggle to justify the expense. Do you really need your team to access work based computers when your team of ten can simply download the software or log into apps from their computers at home? Read more

A backup strategy is the only foolproof way to fight data loss. With even the smallest businesses generating terabytes of data, a sound backup strategy is crucial for business continuity. Infrequent batch backups are no longer sufficient.

Here’s a guide to help you determine and build a backup strategy that works for your needs and budget.
