Twelve years ago, our “network” consisted of 5 workstations running on Windows 3.1 and LanTastic. Today we have rack mounted servers running SBS 2003 and over 25 workstations. Within a month, we will rollout thin clients operating on a secure wireless for MRP and factory automation. Through every change and upgrade, ANS has been a partner and contributor by offering services and support that recognize our immediate and future needs. AlphaCare managed services have helped us achieve excellent system uptime and reliability. ANS consultants, when needed, are prompt and professional. Until recently, we used tape backups. You have to remember to change the tapes, check the logs, etc. Tapes wear out and drives need maintenance. Our new Disk-to-Disk backup server makes those tapes obsolete. Now our backups are automatic, with system images being recorded every 15 minutes. Even more important, a full system image is maintained off-site. This is an integral part of our disaster recovery plan. ANS is instrumental in helping me focus on the business, not the systems. IT is my responsibility, but not my profession. ANS makes me look like a pro, at a cost that is more than reasonable.
