Consulting & Compliance
Whether you need expert engineers to proactively manage internally hosted servers, techies to manage the cloud for an upcoming project, or want us to harden your existing infrastructure so that it's PCI compliant, chances are we've done it before, done it well and we can do it for you.
Hand over your sys admin headaches to us and get a whole team of experts dedicated to making sure that every problem gets solved and every compliance audit is passed.
We know how to get existing systems compliant. We know how to clean up mistakes. We know how to take ownership of your PCI Compliance so that you never have to worry.

Linux sysadmin advice
Need a hand upgrading your current Linux distribution? Have an office full of desktops refusing to play with your Linux server? Want some advice in mirroring a virtualised environment? Maybe you want someone else to take the hassle out of installing and managing that big Conent Management System you need by last Friday? You know who to call.
Open source training
We've run bespoke training courses for government agencies, blue chip companies and individuals just curious about getting up to speed with Linux and its open source ecosystem. Our "Positive Skills" training doesn't simply bring you a pre-packaged course, but tailors our teaching for your specific needs. That's why our sessions are constantly rated as "excellent" in post-course surveys. Let us train you or your team today, at your premises or in a number of UK locations. We'll give you invaluable hands-on knowledge of the agile systems you want to use to their best.
Database and site optimization
We've had over a decade of making systems run efficiently in every conceivable configuration. Before you fork out thousands on new hardware to make your site run more quickly or reliably, give us a call: our team will profile your applications and website, suggest database optimisations and cacheing strategies that could save you significant time and money. Give our efficiency wizards a call and let them do their magic.
Cutting through the cloud
So, you have a large, scalable system in the cloud but need someone to manage and support this - someone who can make the whole thing less ... nebulous? We have substantial experience at just this, combining Amazon Web Service and similar clusters with our own systems and monitoring expertise. We've done it for major broadcasters during major events like the World Cup and the X Factor. Now let us do it for you.
