IRONCLAD: Managed IT Services

At Ironclad TEK, we focus on core IT infrastructure. 

Founded in 2005, we have a long history of providing managed services focusing on: Network, Security, Server, Storage and Virtualization.  We believe, that by being true integrators, we can bring an understanding of the entire IT foundation.  To find our level of breadth and skill, clients would usually have to deal with very large service providers.  Those companies tend to come with sizeable overhead and are not as flexible or nimble as we are.  We often provide mentorship or assistance in procurement, consulting, and architecture across all of the previously listed disciplines, as well as ongoing operational support.  With our Hosted IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) platform, we are now delivering large-scale enterprise high availability Hybrid and Private Cloud solutions to our clients at a very affordable cost.

 

Managed Services (IT)

Our clients look to Ironclad to manage either a portion or their IT entire environment. We can do this as a project-based service or as an ongoing service contract. We approach Managed Services with a "win together" spirit. With the integral role that IT plays in supporting business strategy, we are an important proponent in the success of our clients. Ironclad Managed Services do not need to replace Internal IT, often we manage underlying infrastructure and desktop support while internal IT is freed up to focus on running applications that help drive the business forward. 

We monitor Workstations, Servers, Storage, Networking and other core technology systems, identifying and resolving most issues before they become apparent to the business. We believe that IT is working the way it should be when it is invisible to the user.

  • Managed Global Network Operations
  • Managed Virtualization
  • Managed Server/Storage

Procurement Support

Hardware Procurement:

Buying network equipment is often seen as an onerous task especially when hardware failure or a capacity issue makes it necessary. A better approach is to emphasize it as the opportunity to improve your organization's responsiveness.

Ironclad TEK ensures that you're looking at next-generation networking equipment that can give you an "edge" having a device that meets more than one requirement saves on the capital outlay. In a tough business environment where large corporations dominate the playing field, small-scale enterprises and companies need to maintain a competitive edge. When they need to build a network, they need IT equipment that provides reliable performance but will not strain their budgets. Tighter budgets mean enterprises need to make the smartest purchasing decisions possible.

Your business also needs to consider product warranties and customer support when looking for a provider of network equipment. With the right provider of hardware solutions, businesses can build a reliable IT network without straining their budgets. A quick delivery service, competitive pricing and order tracking service is always a must.

Ironclad TEK has secured strong and trusting relationships with the best of breed hardware manufacturers. We believe that when purchasing network equipment and support contracts that these established relationships are crucial. Ironclad Tek has the contacts and resources necessary to ensure that any event encountered by our customers will be navigated and processed effectively and efficiently.
