Network Troubleshooting
No matter what the Network Operating System, Linux, Unix, Windows, Apple or Novell, a senior level Sky Computer Services Network Engineer will efficiently trouble-shoot your network problems. We solve problems in hours that other techs have been unable to solve in days. Some of the common issues we regularly solve:
  • "Slow" networking performance
  • Non-functioning or "not-starting" Servers
  • Malfunctioning firewalls and routers
  • Exchange Server errors and malfunctions
  • Faulty and/or poor data cabling
  • Troublesome workstations that are "unable to logon"
  • Incorrect IP routing and DNS resolution issues
  • Data Recovery and Restore problems

After identifying and isolating the problem(s) we will quickly remedy the problem and return your network to smooth operation even if we have to work at night or on the weekend.

Network Installation and Support
Even the best hardware and software is of little value if it is not installed and configured properly. Knowing the correct settings for today's advanced server applications is simply a matter of experience. The ramifications of an incorrectly installed network or software program can result in costly budget overruns and operational downtime. Sky Computer Services LLC has years of experience and a diversified team upon which to draw, so you can rest assured that your network will be more then just "working", but also configured for maximum security and optimized for peak performance. Sky Computer Services LLC will also document the critical aspects of your network and make that information accessible.

Proactive Network Administration
Active management of your network, as opposed to waiting for it to breakdown, increases its reliability and your productivity. There are a few key areas that should be regularly maintained in order to ensure the safety and reliability of your network:

  1. Data Backup and Verification
  2. Antivirus Software Updates and Monitoring
  3. Microsoft and Application Updates
  4. Hardware Condition
  5. Firewall Integrity

For as little as two hours per week Sky Computer Services can manage these critical tasks for you, allowing you to do what you do best, focus on your business.

Hardware and Software Procurement
Procurement of technology can be a complicated task.  Where can you get the best price?  What type of warranty do you need?  Which vendors stand behind their products? Over the years, Sky Computer Services LLC has dealt with many products from a variety of vendors and you can be assured that when you purchase from us you will be receive the best value for your investment and that we will handle warranty issues for you without any hassles.  Whether you prefer to do your own procurement or prefer to have Sky Computer Services LLC do that for you, we're here to assist you.  Callfor a detailed quote.

Remote Network Monitoring
If your server crashes or your network is "down", rapid resolution is critical. Server issues often affect every user on your network. You cannot afford to wait until tomorrow or the next day for an answer. Sky Computer Services LLC has the ability to access your server from a remote location and provide fast, efficient support in minutes, not days. If required, Sky Computer Services can dispatch a technician in just a couple of hours, seven days a week.

Technology Planning
The development of a technology plan is important in achieving your long-term business goals. An effective technology plan will document the details of what these goals are, how technology can help you accomplish these long-term business goals, and documentation of the costs in reaching these specified goals. You will feel confident that you are spending wisely and setting the necessary pieces in place for the implementation of these goals in the future.
