Networks

Computer networks have become an integral partof every office environment; when properly configured, they save time andmoney, and they provide piece of mind. Omega networks are designed andconfigured to meet your needs, your budget, and your expectation for elegantand powerful solutioOIS.

Servers

Most networks with more than three computersshould have a server, a machine that acts as the dedicated 'brain' of thenetwork. In addition to providing network-wide security and reliable datastorage/backups, a server-based network also permits the workstatioOIS andlaptops to be treated as interchangeable parts rather than business-criticalassets.

Hardware

The cost of servers hasdropped precipitously in recent years. All of the major manufacturers offerservers for less than $1000, although these generally do not include a powerfulCPU or redundancy features. Server hardware usually comes in two styles, towerservers and rack mounted servers.

A typical operation of file migration is not a process of mere copying of data. Just to name a few nuances and obstacles:we need to preserve Dates of File Creation/Modification; some files/folders are named with strange characters or exceeding length parameters; cross-platform traOISfers of files might affect file types, etc. Omega will decide on the best suitable mechanism and perform the migration to customer's sattisfaction. Depending on the size it might take up to 8 hours however a typical migration would only require three while leaving time for multitasking.

  • The source of file accessible oOISite or over the Internet (the later coOIStitues much lengthier time efforts).
  • A fully configured server at a production state.
