RDS Server Installed for ASTI Environmental
CPS installed a new Remote Desktop Services (RDS) server for ASTI Environmental, an environmental consulting and engineering company located in Brighton, Michigan, to ensure that they would be secure after the Microsoft end of life date for Windows 7 and Server 2008. We worked with ASTI to plan, budget, and schedule an ideal time frame over the holidays to minimize downtime and lost revenue. In that minimal downtime, CPS created over 50 user accounts, migrated data, upgraded all software suites to the latest versions, and transferred the customer’s CRM and databases. All user accounts were preconfigured so staff could begin working immediately upon return from the holidays.
RDS servers are a great way to ensure that your employees across the globe can work together seamlessly and on identical platforms. This technology allows you to leverage the power and security of your server(s) rather than having to purchase costly high-end PCs for all of your users. If you think an RDS server may be right for your company or would like to learn more, contact CPS at 810-224-5252.
Custom-Built Servers & Computers
You may be wondering, “What’s wrong with off-the-shelf computers?” Well, for some people, nothing. Those who just need a basic computer system that is built for the general public and only uses it for visiting Facebook and sending emails, off-the-shelf computers are sufficient. However, those who rely on speed, like gamers, or those who depend on accurate renderings of AutoCAD, like engineers, or those who load or need access to a lot of data in real-time, like factories and warehouses, need something more (a lot more, actually) than the standard store-bought computer. That’s where the professionals at CPS come in. We listen to your needs, assess your operations, and determine the best solution while staying in check with your budget. We’ll make sure that your business is set up with a turn-key configured system that has the power, endurance, dependability, and speed you need to succeed.
When building out and networking your workstations to the company’s servers, our IT professionals confirm that your systems are fortified and protected, reducing the likelihood of online threats, such as viruses and identity theft. With the increase in cyber hacking, it is imperative to make sure your company server is configured and secured correctly. CPS specializes in setting up and building servers from single databases to a complete data center deployment. We also offer a range of servers and network storage solutions for any home or business IT infrastructure; including, full-tower systems, rackmount systems, and multi-processor servers.
