Unix Support

At Maxima Systems we work with multiple Unix platforms and we are able to support most Unix-like operating systems including Linux, Solaris and Tru64.

What is Unix?

Unix in its various different forms remains the most popular operating system for deploying internet services and continues to be a common choice for mission critical services.

In recent years the freely available Unix variant Linux has become increasingly popular with businesses of all sizes and is one of the fastest growing server operating systems. Many companies use Linux because of its reliability as it can run for months and even years without needing to be rebooted. If this isn't enough it also works well on older hardware which is unable to support the ever increasing needs of certain proprietary software. There are many well known companies using Linux including Google, IBM, Netscape, Oracle, Sun, Sony Electronics Inc and Mercedes Benz.

What can Unix do for me?

For most businesses Unix is an excellent server solution. Unix is commonly used for web servers, Windows file servers, printer servers, mail servers, firewalls and internet access.

What can Maxima Systems do for me?

We can install, configure and support Unix. Whilst installation typically requires us to be physically located near the machine the vast majority of configuration and support can be conducted remotely opening up a wide range of possibilities.

Clients with an office in the Isle of Man are able to obtain ADSL solutions with a fixed IP address. We can set up a Unix server in your office configured to meet your needs and then administrate it remotely. This removes the need for expensive highly skilled on-site technical staff to maintain your servers, but gives you access to full time technical support when you need it.

We can provide full technical support to clients with Unix servers collocated at Isle of Man internet service providers.

We can provide remote administration services to clients with servers outside the Isle of Man.

If you feel that your business could benefit from our services then please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
