Don't be tied down
Our broad experience with everything from SOHO to corporate contract puts us in a perfect position to quickly identify the applications and hardware that can save your business money. What's our secret? Open Source software.
Are you running a webserver? File server? Application server? Login server? Are you forced to deal with old, hard-to-maintain Windows desktops? Cerient can help your business save time and money with Open Source Software. There are Open Source projects to cover all of the mentioned business needs and more, and you don't have to sign a contract with a software vendor that might go out of business next month.
Need a feature added? With Open Source, you can have a contractor do it without having to get approval or permission from anyone. Worried about Compatibility? We only use Standards-Compliant technologies, guaranteeing extensibility and freedom.^ TOP
Not Sure about Hardware?
- We're your VAR
- We have years of experience with the best vendors. Whether you need servers, workstations, cabling, or a specialty piece of technology, we have you covered. We have many items, including UPS backup devices, in stock at our Raleigh location.
- Save money with Virtualization
- Virtualization technologies such as VMware and Xen allow us to better utilize server hardware by putting several guest operating systems, including Red Hat and Windows Server operating systems, inside a “host” operating system. This arrangement is more secure both in that the guest operating systems have no way of affecting each other and that it is very easy to take “snapshots” of guest operating systems to back them up. The webserver that hosts this site is running in a virtual machine.
- Don't throw it away just yet
- We can often reuse old hardware. Trade in old servers and workstations for a new model or let us upgrade your existing hardware.
