Our experienced server support consultants work with you to assess your needs, provide you with options, and implement server support services that help you manage and grow your business.

Over the last decade, companies purchased Intel and blade servers as a cost-effective alternative to mainframes and proprietary UNIX servers. The frequent addition of a small number of inexpensive servers was not viewed as a major budget concern when companies were flourishing. However, as server counts grew, they triggered enormous hidden costs in software licensing, maintenance, management and data center environmental management. As the economic picture worsened, these hidden costs became a visible concern. Cost containment is now a priority and often an imperative to the competitiveness of the company, leading to server consolidation and virtualization solutions.

Macrolevel has certified server engineers and consultants who work with your IT department to assess your needs, provide you with options, and provide server installation services and post-installation support. Our experienced consultants can advise your company on a server strategy and determine your equipment needs to meet vendor requirements and specifications for a smooth implementation.

We also offer post-warranty server support services under fixed-fee service contracts to make sure your servers continue to function properly according specifications even after the original manufacturer's warranty expires.

Partnerships with technology vendors such as Dell, IBM, HP, Sun and Supermicro allow us to stay vendor-neutral to provide you with the best possible server support. Our relationships with these top vendors also allow us to bring you the most reliable, best-of-class technology in the market today.

Whether you need stand-alone or blade servers, server farms, virtualized infrastructure, or clustering, Macrolevel can offer you the right technology to handle the short term and long term goals of your company and help you maximize return on your investment.

Macrolevel’s network and server experts are certified to keep your systems - and business - running smoothly.

There is no doubt, servers are the lifeblood of your business network, which is why server failures, both hardware and/or software, can cause such a disastrous disruption in your business day-to-day operations. And usually when a server is down, so does business as usual.
