Microsoft Servers

As a Microsoft Midmarket Solution Provider, K&M are ideally placed to provide you with a complete Microsoft Server based solution designed specifically to meet your company requirements. As a first stage in understanding your needs we will arrange to come over to your offices for a detailed discussion about your business and the issues that are important to you.

We will then consider your requirements, also taking into account any existing IT equipment you have and come up with the right cost effective solution designed to help you get the best value from your investment in IT.

Virtualization

Improve the efficiency and availability of IT resources and applications through virtualization. Start by eliminating the old "one server, one application" model and run multiple virtual machines on each physical machine.

  • Consolidates multiple, under-utilized physical servers on a single host, running Virtual Machines
  • Reduces workforce/space/kilowatt by leveraging virtualization for server consolidation and agility
  • Helps save money because less managing, less space and less kilowatt hours are needed

In these current economic times, businesses are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and ensure the best return on investment possible. Microsoft Virtualization is built into the server operating system which means, you can lower your initial upfront costs - including licensing fees. You can see immediate benefits through reduced power consumption, increased data center space, and increased hardware utilization.

Microsoft Exchange

Microsoft Exchange Server collects e-mails from your internet service, provider over your internet connection, and distributes them to your, individual internal mailboxes. It can also perform other tasks such as e-mail forwarding, shared diaries and folders and links to Microsoft mobile technology. When e-mail is on your own server it can be backed up using exchange backup software such as Symantec Backup exec. You can also add disclaimers to your e-mail so that all emails sent from your company include your own customised disclaimer statement.

Virus protection is an essential addition to your exchange server to protect you from e-mail bound viruses. Over the last few years Spam has become more of a problem. We offer Hexamail as an anti spam tool this is also loaded on to your Exchange Server. Another way to protect your e-mail is to use an off site hosted solution, we partner with an external spam and virus protection company called MessageLabs. Our Microsoft qualified system engineers are experienced in planning and configuring complex Microsoft Exchange e-mail solutions.

HP and DELL Servers

Hewlett Packard and Dell are well respected and reputable companies and they both have an excellent range of cost effective servers that are both powerful and reliable. Selecting the correct server hardware is a complex process. If you are planning to replace your server or IT hardware, please give K&M a call and we will provide a free no obligation evaluation and assessment of your system requirements.

We also have fully hosted Cloud based solutions that can remove the need for in house servers. All you need is a fast, reliable Internet conection and a basic workstation or notebook.

Intel Workstations

K&M has been providing Intel processor based PC workstations for 25+ years. Intel workstations are reliable, powerful and are ideally suited for business use.

Our business workstations are quiet in operation and are thoroughly bench tested to ensure they will provide trouble free operation. Backed up by our fully managed workstation support and maintenance service, you can be assured of the perfect solution to your business workstation needs.

Our Intel based workstations are reliable work horses that are built to cope with a busy office environment.

Apple Workstations

A Mac is designed for a long, productive life. Apple designers and engineers spend countless hours ensuring that each Mac is precisely built — inside and out. From the down-to-the-micron fit of each internal component to the finish of the enclosure, every detail matters. Take MacBook Pro, for example. Its unibody enclosure is machined from a solid block of aluminum. The result is a MacBook Pro that is thin and light, looks polished and refined, and feels strong and durable.

To make a better computer, only quality components and materials will do. That’s why every Mac contains a hard drive, memory, graphics processor, even a power supply specifically chosen to give you the best performance possible. And materials like aluminum and glass (in iMac and MacBook Pro) or rugged polycarbonate (in MacBook) keep all those high-performance components safe and sound

Getting a few hours of battery life from a notebook is good. But for a Mac, good isn’t good enough. On a single charge, you can get up to 8-9 hours on the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro, and up to 10 hours on the MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.1 That means you can power through a day of work or a day of classes without stopping to find the nearest outlet. And the battery inside MacBook and MacBook Pro can be recharged up to 1000 times — good for about five years of typical usage — and lasts nearly three times the lifespan of typical notebook batteries.

K&M install and support Apple equipment, from the new Apple iPad to the iMac workstation and Mac book and Mac book pro laptops.

We can also install your Mac onto your existing Microsoft Windows server network and we also provide emulation software so that you can install and run Windows application on your Mac.

Microsoft Surface Pro
Advanced PC performance

The Surface Pro is a genuine alternative to a full-sized laptop. It can effortlessly run all your favourite Windows programs and apps, from photo editing software to the entire Microsoft Office suite.

Unlike most tablets, which are powered by micro-processors, the Surface Pro features a high-tech Intel® Core™ M processor. During everyday computing it consumes little power for increased battery life. However, should you need more performance for demanding tasks, the processing speed increases to match, so you always have the speed you need without sacrificing battery life.

Notebooks & Netbooks

Portable computing has come a long way in the past few years. We offer a range of powerful machines to suit all requirements, from leading manufacturers such as Hewlett Packard and Dell.

Hewlett Packard have a wide range of powerful yet cost effective notebooks. LED Backlit screens help to increase battery life along with solid state hard disk drives. With Bluetooth, built in 3G/4G and wireless networking it has never been easier to be truly mobile. Internet speeds can still be quite slow in some areas without full 3G/4G but that will get better in time.

Net books are small versions of notebooks; they tend to have less processing power and smaller screens. They are primarily designed for low usage users that may just want to keep in touch using e-mail or amend a word or excel document on the go. They can also be used for presentations as you can plug most of them into an overhead projector.

Backup & Disaster Recovery (DR)

Backups are one of the most important things within your IT Infrastructure.

K&M can help you choose the correct backup for your current needs, whether it be a simple file backup, cloud data backup or a complete site disaster recovery plan.

Whilst backups are important, so are test restores. Nothing can be worse than thinking you have an adequate backup plan, only to find out that when its needed, it hasn’t been working or important data is missing. At K&M we will also check the integrity of your backups to make sure what you think is being backed up, is there and ready if you need it.

Below are some of the services we offer:

  • Hard Drive Backup
  • Tape Backup
  • Offsite Cloud Backup
  • VM Backup (Onsite/Offsite)
  • Disaster Recovery

Leased Lines & Internet connectivity

Businesses rely heavily on their internet connection in this day and age and your Internet connectivity is an essential part of your organisation.
