How do we increase efficiency for businesses?
Total security and control over business applications lie within a company’s Active Directory. Whether you have an existing or new Infrastructure, you need a secure, scalable and manageable platform that can protect your business from the inside-out. Active Directory enables simplified user, resource and network infrastructure management from branch level to multiple forest environments.
Our Server Virtualisation team is responsible for many of the country’s largest active deployment projects. We are often contracted to assist with the design and implementation of large and complicated virtualisation migrations. Our extensive knowledge and experience is available to your business to ensure that the true benefits of virtualisation – with its licensing, hardware, and cost and power saving reductions – are achieved from the start.
Data centralisation and access control to server infrastructure is a concern of many companies. Desktop virtualisation and Remote Desktop Technologies may be the answer to control and perimeter firewall your protected data within your data centre itself. We integrate Microsoft System Center 2012 with a private cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) model to build a virtualisation environment that is well within your company’s grasp.

Exchange, Office 365, and Hosted Exchange
Messaging platforms, be they cloud-hosted or on-premise, are often listed as one of businesses’ business critical components. When these services are affected, it can carry both financial and emotional costs. We integrate site planning, hybrid designs and deployment strategies to mitigate these risks and ensure that a business’ core communication channels are protected.
AVeS’s Messaging Methodology:
Before we propose any solution, it is important that we go through the necessary steps to thoroughly understand your business requirements. During our first consultation, we conduct a technical messaging workshop. This exercise helps us understand your environment, analyse your network infrastructure and plan for a successful migration with industry standard sizing tools. This Exchange 2010/2013 consultancy exercise typically involves your own key technical team members along with a Senior Exchange & Office 365 Architecture and Project Manager. Following the messaging workshop, we can provide you with the following documentation: • Requirements Definition: Summary of the company’s technical, operational and business requirements. • Solution Design: The suggested methods/strategies for meeting the specified requirements. • Investment Summary: Detailed bill of materials and professional services.
Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
Warm data centres and recovery plans are only a small component of a well-designed Disaster Recovery Strategy. AVeS develops a customised approach that is specific to your business to eliminate irrelevant costs to your new or existing Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) plans. We focus on delivering a functional plan that meets up with your auditing requirements, thus simplifying the stressful recovery strategy of your company within a measured RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and controlled RPO (Recovery Point Objective).
Availability of your Digital Information is critical to efficient business operations. The objective is to minimise the loss of revenues and customers service due to the effects of a disaster. It should be a high priority to identify potential threats to your business and the impact they may have on your company’s operations. AVeS develops the process models designed to effectively respond to any incident. This helps to prevent the emergence of a crisis and can assist in the restoration of your technology infrastructure following a disaster or failure.
AVeS provides end-to-end disaster recovery planning and system design services. We can develop a plan and system design that aligns with your recovery objectives and critical business needs that leverages your existing investments; enabling your business systems to recover from any outage rapidly. Unlike business continuity planning which focus on the broader strategy and planning for people and processes, Disaster Recover focuses on the technology and system which support your business and enable you to continue to operate.
Business Continuity Planning
Developing a sound business continuity plan is crucial to preventing even a minor disruption from turning in to a catastrophe. Our business continuity planning services ensure that your company is prepared for any situation.
