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:

Will Blockchain change the Internet?

19th May 2019

Blockchain has been touted as the future of everything. From the Internet, banks, passwords, and ride-sharing, futurists and tech pundits have found a way to reimagine whole industries around blockchain technology. Some experts even believe that the tech will become “as necessary as electricity”.

Today, blockchain remains the domain of tech enthusiasts, large IT enterprises, and cryptocurrency investors. For a technology that’s supposed to change the way we manage money, buy goods, and behave online, most people haven’t even heard of it and relatively few even have a basic idea of how it works.

In this article, I’ll explore the basics of blockchain technology, why it’s so important, and which industries are already investing millions in laying the framework for a blockchain-powered future.

Office Relocation Checklist

15th May 2019

It’s exhilarating to move into a new office—the change of scenery, better facilities, better location and all the associated increases in efficiency that come with this. In short, relocating can be a really important step in moving the business forward. However, it can also be overwhelming to manage and fraught with challenges and pitfalls.

From start to finish, the goal is to make sure operations aren’t disrupted, especially when it comes to your IT and telecommunications. The effect of settling into your new office only to find your equipment and internet service won’t be working for a few days can be very costly and reputationally damaging.
