Virtualization used to be deployed mainly as a tool to reduce cost and enhance equipment utilization rate. Today, virtualization is becoming a critical component to improve business continuity, security and infrastructure resilience.
Server Consolidation and Virtualization
Server virtualization has many benefits. For example, it lets each virtual server run its own operating system and each virtual server can also be rebooted independently of one another. Server virtualization reduces costs by:
Less hardware is required so that alone saves businesses money.
Utilizes resources to the fullest so it can also save on operational costs (e.g. using a lower number of physical servers reduces hardware maintenance).
It increases the space utilization efficiency.
Promotes energy efficiency through reduced energy consumption and a reduction in server room heat -- thereby lowering cooling costs.
Desktop virtualization is increasingly being adopted by organisations as it brings about a wide range of benefits. It:
Enables users to remotely log in to access their desktop from any location as personalized desktop images for each user are hosted on a centralized server.
Offers cost advantages as each virtual desktop does not require its own full suite of hardware, operating system and software.
Helps enhance security as it enables upgrades and patches to be deployed quickly and effortlessly.
Data and Storage Management
Many have said that data is the new gold. Since data is so important to any organization, how does one ensure that the data remains intact and uncompromised? Or how does one ensure that if the data is stolen, it can be easily recovered? With so many data protection solutions in the market, we can help you meander through the jungle and select what is best for your organization.
Storage and servers needs to be protected and back up. Many of us know the drill. Is your backup and disaster recovery strategy complete or is it a work-in-progress? We can help to assess whether your strategy can cope with the various challenges of a typical disaster scenario.

A typical mail server consists of many software components that provide a specific function. Each component must be configured and tuned to work nicely together and provide a fully-functioning mail server. Because they have so many moving parts, mail servers can become complex and difficult to set up. A list of required components in a mail server includes:
Mail Transfer Agent
Mail Delivery Agent
IMAP and/or POP3 Server
Micro 2000 can assist to setup and configure the functionalities of multiple components, including domain name, DNS, SSL, etc.
Virtual Private Network
Most companies maintain VPNs so that employees can connect and access to resources, files and applications on the office network without compromising security. Let Micro 2000 assist you to design and deploy a VPN for your office to ensure your staff stays productive and to secure your office infrastructure.
It's all too easy to neglect data security. While bigger organizations have IT departments, service contracts, and enterprise hardware, smaller companies frequently rely on consumer software, which lacks the same sort of always-on security functionality.
Data Encryption is a great way to keep valuable data safe—whether you’re transmitting it over the Internet, backing it up on a server, or just carrying it through airport security on your laptop. Encrypting your data makes it completely unreadable to anyone but you or its intended recipient.
Businesses are under constant pressure to increase reliability and to reduce cost. Investing in new hardware is costly and maintaining personnel to manage them is challenging.
Various studies have shown that cloud computing helps lower your IT costs and reduces your overheads. It also improves productivity by enabling your employees to assess important information from nearly anywhere.
Micro 2000 consultants can work with you to determine which type of cloud offering works for your organization.
Private Cloud defines a cloud computing platform that is implemented within the corporate firewall, under the control of the IT department.
A public cloud is one based on the standard cloud computing model, in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to customers over the Internet.
Mobile Device Management
The widespread proliferation of IT consumerization means more personal consumer computing devices — such as smartphones, laptops and tablets — are brought to the workplace by employees for use and connectivity on the corporate network.
Mobile device management solutions provide organizations with end-to-end security, ensuring information accessed on such devices remains secure.
Traditional security measures using password and token-based systems are susceptible to security breaches by unauthorized users.
Biometric software security systems enhance security by linking a unique physical attribute of a user to the data that they are allowed to access. The user provides their fingerprint (or other biometric) to the system, which is then authenticated against a stored template.
Biometric security solutions can be easily applied to your mobile devices or for physical access to sensitive data storage equipment and areas.
Infrastructure Planning for Business Continuity
With easy access to technology 24/7, there is an ever-increasing reliance on business-critical information, productivity tools, email and communication systems.
Will your organisation keep operating in the event of a serious incident or disaster?
How would unplanned downtime of your IT and communication infrastructure affect the business or the operation of your organisation?
