Here are just a few of the typical projects our team regularly engage on

Environment Refresh

Nothing lasts forever. When applications start to perform too slowly or things keep failing, it's a sure sign some or all of your environment needs to be overhauled. We work hand in hand with your team to assess not only what you need today, but what you'll need in the future. Making sure any environment refresh is future proofed.

Solution Expansion

We all outgrow things. We speak to many customers whose environments are no longer the right size for the job in hand. We assess and explore innovative ways that allow them to expand their environments in a way that isn't linear with cost.

Backup and Disaster recovery

Business continuity is a must when dealing with mission-critical data. Our team are often engaged to assess, architect and deploy backup and disaster recovery solutions that compliment production environments.

Virtual server upgrades

Upgrading hypervisors and virtual server solutions can be daunting, especially where production systems are involved and downtime isn't an option. At NexStor we've been working with virtual environments from the start and know how to navigate the nuances of the upgrade paths of all the major vendors.
