Servers should be straightforward to install, configure, and maintain. Unnecessary complications not only mean extra work, they increase the risk of making mistakes.

Criminals want to get at your servers. That's an inescapable fact of life. With in-depth security, you can frustrate their attempts. Full-volume encryption and anti-malware software are parts of a comprehensive security suite. Monitoring and intrusion detection will catch malware before it can do significant harm.
A growing range of servers incorporates protection at the hardware level. A chip for storage of encryption keys makes them unavailable even to applications running on the server. A ROM-based check of boot code when the system comes up makes sure that nothing has been tampered with. Hardware-generated tokens strengthen the reliability of authentication.
You want the investment in your servers to yield a long useful life. Several approaches are available. You can choose a server tower with room for internal expansion and a wealth of ports for external connections. Alternatively, you can build your configuration out of rack-mount cards, replacing them individually as necessary. Genisys Group's experts will help you make sure that whatever path you choose, you avoid dead-end investments and have a smooth upgrade path to take advantage of new technology when it's available.
There's no "one size fits all" solution for servers. Genisys Group will work with you to assess your business's needs. We'll help you to make sure that you have the performance to support all your applications without spending more than you have to.
