I am able to install, maintain and manage servers, Desktop PCs, workstations, laptops, tablets, network switches, firewall devices, routers, backup devices and printers.

Hardware

The infrastructure of a small business may consist of a few PC's, Workstations or laptops in a peer to peer network. The physical installation of a computer may involve unpacking everything from the box and connecting the peripherals that came with it (keyboard, monitor(s), mouse, speakers, etc.) also connecting power from the computer to a power socket or an Uninteruptable Power Supply (UPS).

As your business grows and the number of employees expands there will be a growing need to use a server to store files or run applications, such as sharing files or a database application. The physical installation of a server may be on a rack or stand alone tower. The work will include connecting all power, network cables and peripherals. The server will then be turned on to test basic server power up and network connectivity. The server wiil then be ready for OS and software installation.

Anyone or a business that uses computers or devices should have some form of backup be it cloud based or some form of backup device such as CDs, DVDs, USB sticks, External Hard Drives, Solid-State Drives SSD, Network Storage Devices.


Software
