Urban Managed Infrastructure Services

Today, there a various options for housing your IT infrastructure. It may be within your own environment, in a single data centre or across multiple sites. Whatever the location, however complex the configuration, your IT infrastructure needs to be continually optimised and managed if it is to serve your business correctly.

This is where we come in. Our solution-specific engineers can take over the management of existing infrastructure or design and implement a new one that’s right for you. Importantly, we’ll manage it thereafter to ensure it’s performing at its optimum level and remains secure and reliable.

Managed Infrastructure Options

We’ll be happy to take you through all the options, explain all the pros and cons, and detail how our management processes would work best for you. To give you a flavour, the following are typical solutions we’ve implemented and are managing now.

Physical Servers

We can help specify, source, install and manage any number of physical servers. These could have various functions including security and connectivity. For example, a server could be dedicated to databases, another to web services, a third to authentication, all supported and managed according to your needs.

Hybrid Servers

Where cloud services fit alongside your existing physical infrastructure, we can combine on-premise server technology with products such as OneDrive which can sync with Sharepoint and we can link Active Directory users to the power of Azure AD for Microsoft Office365 users. Hybrid options will be developed in line with your operation and managed by our experts thereafter.

Custom Dedicated Servers

Our highly qualified team has all the industry certifications and experience required to develop an IT architecture that works for your business, handles all the peaks and troughs of demand and enhances the performance of your systems.

Private Clouds

Where security and privacy are paramount, we can design and implement a single-tenant model whereby you enjoy the benefits of the public cloud without compromising your levels of control.

Microsoft Hyper-V

We utilise expertise in platforms like Microsoft’s Hyper-V®to deliver virtualisation at a great price. You get all the reassurance of regular backups and the added security of a secondary data location in case of extreme circumstances. What’s more, the architecture is designed specifically for your business and managed by our experts.

Powered by VMware

Enjoy the power of VMware® and vSphere®and benefit from working with an extra layer of software in your infrastructure which helps to manage your resources and storage and ensures the smooth running of your applications.

Hosted either in the public or private sphere, cloud-based solutions can be tailored to your specific needs. We’ll use our expertise to ensure all the services you require are included, using the very best software to facilitate your email, file sharing and storage and authentication needs.

Often a neglected area of IT infrastructure, database management can be critical to your business success and continuity. Our Managed Services can include your databases and your SQL Servers and monitor them to ensure they perform at their best.

A business without an effective network will always struggle to reach its full potential but our approach covers all the essentials. We’ll scale networks to suit your volumes and build in robust protection against DDoS attacks.

Network infrastructure

Our attention to detail is second to none. When we design and implement any managed ITinfrastructure, we are always looking at the bigger picture. Networks are expertly designed ensuring all the security protocols are built in, reducing your risk and enhancing the performance of all your IT resources.


Our firewall options are amongst the very best. Your network will be protected by Cisco® or Juniper and our managed service will ensure your protection is always monitored and always defending your systems.

Custom Switches

If you’re ready to work in the cloud we can upgrade your network to 10GbE. You’ll have the best custom switches from Cisco® or Arista® and a network configured to your exact needs.

Load Balancers

Every aspect of your system matters. High-quality load balancers are an essential part of ensuring your infrastructure supports your business by maintaining the speed and security of your processes.

SSL Certs

More and more people are aware of the importance of SSL certification which confirms your commitment to data protection, encryption and secure transmission. Our experts will work with you on this crucial step.

Storage Area Network (SAN)

Take your storage data off the user network and enjoy improved performance where each server can independently access the shared storage. We can offer various configurations including block-based or file-level options.

Network Attached Storage (NAS)

Our expertise with network attached storage solutions will ensure your operation can handle any amount of data storage, support file sharing and benefit from the scalability offered by virtualisation.

Managed Backup

Your data is invaluable and any failure in your backup processes can leave you exposed. Our managed backup service is affordable and designed to ensure you’re never at risk of losing data.
