Virtualisation allows organisations to simplify data centre operations and management at scale, increase business efficiency and decrease capital and operating costs. The past 10 years has seen a huge move towards virtual servers, rather than having costly, resource intensive, in-house, physical servers. Calibre specialises in two solutions in this arena.

VMware vSphere is our chosen solution for virtualisation, providing a powerful, flexible, and secure foundation for business agility. It helps you run, manage, connect and secure your applications in a common operating environment across the hybrid cloud. With vSphere, you can support new workloads and use cases while keeping pace with the growing needs and complexity of your infrastructure.

Hyper-V was developed by Microsoft to address the growing interest in virtualization technology, which allows for multiple operating systems to be installed on one physical server by pooling the available resources of the host server to consolidate existing infrastructure into a higher-density environment with a smaller physical footprint. Businesses of all sizes that manage multiple servers may be able to consolidate multiple physical servers and the resources they utilize by shrinking the footprint of their data centers, thereby lowering the total costs associated with managing their systems.


Back-up and Recovery

With time to recovery measured in minutes rather than days, we can ensure your business is protected with world class business continuity technology.

Products we use include state of the art backup and disaster recovery software that backs-up a business’s entire IT environment in a way that makes it easily and instantly retrievable if the worst happens.

Our carefully chosen solution options include Veeam Backup and Replication v6-9.5 and Backup Exec from Symantec. We can configure your existing products or after analysis install a more appropriate solution for your needs. Our engineers have extensive experience working with clients in worst case scenarios of full infrastructure restorations, getting businesses back up and running from full shutdown.

Applications Deployment

We can help you enable employees to access the corporate applications they need to be productive from anywhere, on whatever device they choose, while helping protect corporate information.

Using Windows System Center Configuration Manager we can administer client systems and offer improved visibility and enforcement options for maintaining system compliance. It allows administrators to help end users gain access to the devices and applications they need without compromising corporate security.

Desktop Support

Our managed desktop services deliver cost-saving benefits to your organisation, delivered with security at the forefront. We offer a comprehensive support service as your IT department or alongside your IT department as extra support when needed.

Our solutions allow us to remotely troubleshoot issues from any range of endpoint devices such as PC, laptop, printers, scanners and mobile devices. If we’re unable to resolve a fault remotely, we will send a Calibre engineer.

Securing our network kept our business safe.

We have been extremely pleased with Calibre, who have impressed with their knowledge and technical capabilities.
