Qirx Professional Services can offer your business everything from products to complete design and implementation services.  Qirx can design, implement and deliver complete IT solutions for your business involving the whole infrastructure stack. This may include cloud services and project management.

In addition to being an IT solutions integrator, Qirx can also assist with your storage, virtualisation or networking needs as standalone products or services.

Qirx takes a holistic approach to virtual architecture, storage and networking, considering all elements of an environment when developing a design. This approach provides our clients with the best possible solution for each unique environment. Qirx has a team of highly trained specialists as well as strategic partnerships with a wide variety of technology providers to ensure that we can deliver you a truly unique and best fit IT solution.

Our aim is to properly assess your requirements before selecting the most appropriate technology and methodologies from the most appropriate vendor(s) to deliver you a high-performance and cost-effective solution that properly meets your needs. Having partnerships with a variety of vendors allows us to create a solution that is as custom as your network, rather than being wedded to a single vendor solution that may not meet your needs.

Here are just some of the Professional Services that Qirx can offer:

Qirx offers end to end system architecture solutions, each virtualisation design and architecture is planned to meet VMware current best practices. A virtualisation design and architecture starts off by determining client needs, from here a detailed analysis of the existing physical environment is undertaken to determine the capacity requirements for the proposed virtual infrastructure.

The capacity analysis undertaken for a virtualisation design includes all areas of IT infrastructure including server infrastructure, storage infrastructure and capacity, networking infrastructure and client devices.

Virtualisation architecture designs are put together with future needs and requirements in mind. Disaster recovery, security and life cycle management are taking into consideration when the design is put together. This is to ensure the proposed environment can be added to and made future proof if necessary.

Qirx can perform capacity planning and analysis on both existing and future infrastructure requirements. This includes both the physical requirements and managerial requirements to ensure sufficient capacity is available to support a proposed virtual environment.

We can help you with:

  • Ascertaining the infrastructure and management requirements to ensure sufficient capacity for the present and future need of the organisation.
