Proactive Technology Infrastructure Management for Business

For many businesses, their network has become their primary method of communicating with their customers, vendors and employees. As a result, it is crucial to ensure that the network infrastructure is always available and operating at peak efficiency. If any critical device on the network suffers an outage, the downtime results in lost
productivity for the entire organisation.

The ability to predict, quickly identify and resolve problems in the network infrastructure is the cornerstone to maintaining peak performance. Implementing technology management systems aimed at achieving optimum performance can be a costly and cumbersome task that is generally reserved for large companies.

Remote Network Monitoring

Remote Network Monitoring allows Sydney Technology Solutions to anticipate and quickly resolve network issues before they become major problems for the client. The 24 x 7 proactive network monitoring gives clients peace of mind that key components of the network infrastructure are operating reliably. Sydney Technology Solutions will identify and suggest key network elements to be monitored such as Internet connectivity, firewalls, mail, web and file servers. Once identified, a Sydney Technology Solutions consultant will set up and configure thresholds for each device in the intuitive dashboard that provides at-a-glance status of all the network elements being monitored. If a monitored device or element reaches a threshold, a notification is triggered by the system. Based on the notification rules, a Sydney Technology Solutions consultant will verify the alarm and begin to remotely diagnose and resolve the issue. If the issue is severe enough based on the notification rules, the client is notified that an alarm has been activated and problem diagnosis has begun.

The service includes:

  • Connectivity monitoring of most industry standard network protocols such as HTTP, DNS, POP3, IMAP, SMTP,SSH, generic TCP and more.
  • Device specific agents that monitor CPU activity, disk and memory utilisation,process execution, batch log, appended log and Windows event log monitoring.
