Servers are the core elements in a well-run network; consequently, your System Administrator is the most critical single member of your IT group. Failure to recognize this fact can and does prove extremely damaging, since poor system administration is usually to blame for the loss of critical data. HydraNet understands the supreme importance of the System Administrator role, and our team of Administrators reflects that. They are some of most highly trained, knowledgeable, and dedicated SysAdmin available anywhere. They specialize in setting up and administering mission-critical server environments, installations where there is no margin for error. Administering Unix, Linux, and Windows system environments, their sole focus is on maintaining a 99.99% or better uptime and sufficient redundancy to insure full data recoverability even in the face of the most severe disasters. Can you afford to lose your data? Are you certain of a full data recovery, even in the event total hardware failure or disaster? If not, you owe it to yourself and your business to speak with HydraNet.
The nearly endless cycle of desktop software and hardware upgrades is a difficult and time-consuming process for the enterprise. One influential research study has put the total cost of operating (TCO) a typical networked PC as high as $9,784 per year. Further, implementing company-wide migrations to new operating systems and applications is a logistically complex operation. The very nature of a flexible and configurable PC makes it a demanding tool to maintain for the enterprise's service and support departments. Just keeping machines properly patched and secure against the endless threats of virii, worms, and hacker threats is an ongoing challenge. HydraNet's experience maintaining and administering thousands of networked PCs have given us a unique edge. This edge translates to a significantly lower TCO per workstation for our clients. We use state-of-the-art tools and methods to keep your PC network running smoothly, while rolling out necessary patches, upgrades and migrations to the corporate desktop. And by eliminating the sizable IT management burden associated with PC support activities, HydraNet allows your enterprise to focus on its core competencies.

As companies continue to sharpen their focus on their core competencies, they increasingly turn to firms like HydraNet to handle their IT education needs. Unlike many IT training firms, HydraNet puts actual field-tested technicians, programmers, and IT managers in the training center. The goal is to present even the most complex and technical knowledge clearly and understandably, with a focus on real-world applications as opposed to theory. Training content ranges from general technical areas such as Unix Systems Administration to proprietary applications exclusive to your organization. While maintaining many IT training and outsourcing contracts, HydraNet strictly maintains the confidentiality of the client strategies and applications. Every training contract contains a NDA clause to insure your proprietary knowledge remains just that.
HydraNet Migration services handle jobs ranging from the upgrade of application suites and operating systems to the migration of legacy data to new platforms.

The entire migration took place over a weekend, and business continued uninterrupted on the next business day.
