When you just want IT to work!

There are a lot of computer shops out there that you can call up to fix an issue or install a piece of equipment. They might be able to get you out of crisis mode, but they aren’t looking at the full picture.

At Amaxx, we understand business. We consult. We provide solutions to solve everyday challenges. We just happen to fix computers as well.

We believe (and have proven) that if you proactively manage technology, run maintenance religiously, and monitor a business network, everyday issues and downtime will be greatly reduced.

This is what makes us different than your typical tech support company. Sure, we can fix computer issues when you have them, but our specialty is preventing them in the first place.

Amaxx is a part of the “value add” solutions we offer to our clients every day.

      • Shelley Metz Baumann Hawk, Inc.

        Working for a small structural engineering firm, I have to wear many hats around the office. Maintaining and managing the IT systems is just one of those hats but there is not enough time in the day for me to do everything effectively. Amaxx is my invaluable partner. They can easily take care of the everyday tasks such as monitoring the health of our network, managing our security protocols, verifying all PCs and Servers are properly updated, and fielding help desk calls to be sure all my fellow employees are running efficiently. They handle large projects such as server installs with similar ease, and goes to great lengths to do it in such a way that allows the office to continue to function with as little downtime as possible. The attitude of the Amaxx staff is not one of superiority. In fact, it is quite the opposite. They make you feel at ease and let you know that they are your partner. Amaxx always has the best interest of your company at heart.

      • I had the pleasure of working with Amaxx for two years while I was managing the IT for a large community. IT was just one "small" part of my job, so I really had limited hours allotted to take care of the 60+ workstations and servers. We also needed to upgrade some parts of our infrastructure to deal with the increasing demands of our clients, expand our Wi-Fi, and get better use of our medical charting systems. The team at Amaxx was always available, and they provided great direction and advice. They always considered our bottom line in the process, and followed through until everything was completed. For our regular/daily operations I really had no concerns because Amaxx is a great IT vendor, and I knew that I could rely on them. My favorite service is their 24-hour monitoring.

        Working at a 24-hour facility, it is nice to go home and actually not fret over "what could happen." If anything went wrong with our server, it was the Amaxx crew getting wake-up calls in the middle of the night... not me. I came into work a few mornings and they were already there to repair some problems or do a necessary upgrade. They have always gone above and beyond and are very friendly as well.

      Why it May Not Be Worth it to Replace Your Server

      Server virtualization is a great way to save costs and reduce operational expenses in the long run. Virtual servers can separate the computing resources of a server and allocate them within a cloud-like infrastructure. Server virtualization is great for businesses that have limited budgets and resources, since this is a responsibility that’s simple to outsource to a reliable third party service provider.

      Here are three major reasons why you should go with virtual servers for your next IT refresh.

      Virtual Environments
      One of the biggest reasons to use virtual servers is that you can create multiple computing instances on the same virtual machine. For example, if you’re using a legacy application that’s only functional with a specific operating system, you can run a virtual machine dedicated to that application. This keeps you from investing unnecessary capital into an entirely separate server unit for the exclusive use of one application. Keep in mind that this also helps you limit the cost of operation and maintenance that would be needed for a dedicated server.

      Save on Operating Costs
      Another major benefit that virtual servers offer is the ability to host less hardware in-house. Servers use a lot of electricity and generate a lot of heat, making air conditioning a top priority for server longevity. High energy costs can put a damper on your budget, and server virtualization offers a remedy. You can consolidate your infrastructure onto one device with multiple virtual machines, rather than create a complex infrastructure of network components. This cuts down on your operational expenses.

      Effectively Manage Resources
      Virtual machines let service providers or IT administrators manage their workloads more-effectively. You can monitor and adjust workloads in a cloud-based interface in real time, allowing operations to progress unhindered. While it’s possible to have your own internal IT department handle this, it’s better to outsource these responsibilities to save internal time and resources for more important matters.

      The next time you need a hardware refresh, be sure to keep your server infrastructure at the top of your mind. To learn more, reach out to us at 614-923-6700.

      Tip of the Week: 3 Easy Exercises Designed for Office Workers

      If you’re experiencing the ill health effects of poor desk posture, try these exercises at home--you’ll see why in a moment--to relieve many of the negative symptoms by stretching out your cramped and compressed muscles.

      Get rocking...
      On all fours, carefully rock back and forth. When rocking back, your hips should move down towards your feet, extending your back for a stretch across the lower portion of your spine, relaxing the stretch when returning to the forward position. For an added bonus in your upper back and neck, nod your head as you rock, bringing your chin to and from your chest.

      … and rolling.
      Starting off by laying on your stomach with your arms above your head, alternatively lift your arms and use their weight to roll over a few times on each side. Be sure to use the weight of your arm to roll, rather than bracing against the ground and pushing yourself over.

      Also, get back to the basics.
      With remarkably few exceptions, human beings start moving on all fours. Use that as an inspiration during your next exercise and crawl forwards and backwards, focusing on moving your hips as much as possible. While moving backwards, get a good stretch in your neck by turning your head from side to side.

      Hopefully, it is now clear why these exercises are better done at home. Unless your office has a dedicated exercise area, there simply is not space for employees to do such things, never mind how distracting such activities would be for the other employees to work around. Therefore, since these activities are intended to assist office workers in remaining comfortable and focused, this is a bit of work that people should really take home with them.

      An uncomfortable employee is an unproductive employee--fortunately, the opposite is also true. Encouraging your employees to take care of their bodies will not only help them feel their best, but also help them remain more productive for your business.

      4 Instances You’ll Be Glad You Had Disaster Recovery

      In order to best protect your business from crippling downtime and data loss, we’ll go over four situations where you’ll wish you had disaster recovery for your data.

      Natural Disasters
      Your local weather channel might give you an idea of what the weather will be like throughout the day, but that can change in the blink of an eye. If your location is prone to floods and violent rainstorms, you could lose data due to water damage. Earthquakes can strike when you least expect it, destroying offices and homes and ending lives. Even something as simple as a power outage could bring about the destruction of your data. The point we’re trying to get across is that natural disasters can strike anywhere at any time, and your IT infrastructure needs to be ready to handle them.

      Hardware Failures
      Another recurring issue for organizations that rely heavily on technology is hardware failure. If you’re not monitoring and maintaining your hardware, it can be easy to let resource-intensive equipment get overworked, which inevitably leads to malfunction. Technology can’t last forever, so an untimely hardware failure could cripple your infrastructure.

      User Error
      In the same way as hardware failure, user error could cause your organization to lose data or bring down systems. The reason: people aren’t perfect, and you can’t expect them to be. People could accidentally lose track of files or hand over credentials for accounts which hold sensitive data, giving a hacker a clear path toward stealing your information. User error is a primary cause for data destruction, so it’s important that you implement data backup to account for this risk.

      Hacking Attacks
      Even if you don’t suspect that you’ll become a victim of a hacking attack, you’re a target. Any organization that collects sensitive data--be it financial information or personally identifiable information--needs to consider itself a target for hackers. All it takes is an installation of malware (like ransomware) to put your data at risk. Hackers usually either want to delete data or steal it for themselves, so it’s up to you to keep your systems backed up in the event that something happens.

      Basically, the one thing that you have to remember is this: you need a way to recover your data, or you’ll suffer in the event of a disaster. We recommend that SMBs reach out to us at 614-923-6700 and ask about our dynamic backup and disaster recovery solution (BDR). You’ll have all of your bases covered… just in case.
