Bobcares routinely manages cloud infrastructure covering a wide range of technologies. We take care of all technical support and system management tasks that includes, user administration, resource management, storage/network administration, network/system hardening, performance optimization, backup management, hypervisor/core upgrades, etc. Listed below are a few technologies we administer on a day-to-day basis.
VMWare enables virtualization of business infrastructure through its server/cloud management solutions such as vSphere, vCenter, vRealize, vCloud Suite, etc.
OpenStack is an open-source software platform for cloud computing, mostly used for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). It supports both hypervisors and container technology.
CloudStack is an open source cloud system that supports all popular hypervisors such as KVM, VMware vSphere, and XenServer/XCP for virtualization.
How we help
VM technical support
Virtual Machine owners often need assistance with resource upgrades, custom operating system installs, fixing boot errors, etc. We help you maintain a responsive technical support channel over help desk and live chat, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
VM abuse recovery
Just like any other server on the internet, virtual machines get their share of security issues. This can include phishing, spamming, IP range black listing etc. We help your customers recover from, and secure their VMs against all kinds of abuse issues.
Running a server brings with it a slew of issues, such as mail deliver errors, slow servers, website errors, etc. With Bobcares, your customers get fast, expert support that helps them quickly resolve any service error in their VM.
Software installation & upgrades
System application upgrades (like PHP upgrade, MySQL upgrade, etc.) and application installs (like media servers, CRM apps, etc.) could easily lead to a maze of errors. We help your customers setup and upgrade any application the right way, the first time.
Virtual Machine provisioning
Customers look for instant service, and we are happy to oblige them. Whether your provisioning guarantee is in minutes or in hours, we make it happen. We help your customers quickly setup and effortlessly manage their accounts.
Monitoring & emergency administration
RAID array errors, network congestion, faulty power unit – a lot of things can affect service quality in a server environment. We keep a close eye on infrastructure health, and quickly resolve systems issues before it can affect service quality.
VM backup maintenance
Backups are like parachutes. When you need them, it better work! However, issues such as disk space overages, load spikes, network errors etc., can cause backups to fail. We help you setup VSS-aware backup systems, and monitor it’s integrity daily to ensure 100% reliable backups at all times.
VM template maintenance
Quick account provisioning depends on the availability of up-to-date virtual machine templates. We keep the operating system and applications in VM templates updated at all times, so that post-install setup time can be minimized, and customers get a new VM as soon as an order is placed.
High availability management
Many factors should act together for high availability to work. For eg., the un-used resources in a server cluster should be equal to the resources in any one node, and management network should have 100% uptime. We monitor your systems round the clock, and resolve any conflict that can affect HA failover.
Installation & configuration
Setting up a virtualization system involves many challenges like designing the ideal architecture, choosing the right hardware, setting up the network & storage systems, integrating with billing system, etc. We help you build a virtualized system from scratch that is customized to meet your unique business requirements.
