Server-Based Computing - IBM SystemX
IBM's SystemX server system offers the highest quality server hardware available for running your network applications on. Even their smallest servers inheirit technology from their top end equipment. All of the servers that we install are supplied with a minimum of a three year next business day on-site warranty, with some customers choosing to upgrade to four hour response. These highly configurable machines are available in pedestal (tower) form factors as well as rack-mountable versions.
Using a combination of the IBM SystemX servers and Microsoft Windows Server System, we are able to install and maintain servers that provide real value and low total cost of ownership to our customers.
As IBM Business Partners and Microsoft Partners, we are able to use our knowledge and experience to specify, install and maintain the ideal server to run your business.
We install many servers with the popular Microsoft Small Business Server, which incorporates numerous features, just a couple of which are listed below.

Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 is built to set up quickly and help your business run effectively. Your company can really benefit from the full networking power of this easy to operate server.
Why not use open source software? Open source software is great for custom or "ready rolled" applications, however an open source version of Small Business Server does not exist. Various pieces of software can be combined to produce such a solution, but the configuration time required to implement such a system very often prices it out of range.
Having said this, Quayside does install and maintain Linux servers with open source software installed for particular customer applications. We would welcome a telephone call from you to discuss the possibilities available for your company
