On-Premise IT Solutions

Max Communications' on-premise IT solutions are designed to help organizations of all sizes and from different sectors achieve rapid technological growth whilst reducing recurring operational costs. At the heart of Max Communications' approach are solutions which combine the latest wireless network technologies with business-changing storage and memory technologies for quick, optimal, on-demand scalability. Max Communications' on-premise IT solutions are designed and modelled for organisations ranging in size from small businesses to large data centres and offer the implementation of servers and storage arrays, including storage area networks (SAN) and enterprise scale on-premise management solutions.

Why Use Max's On-Premise IT Solutions?

One of the key factors which underlies Max Communications' approach is an ability to marry scalability with efficiency, allowing our customers to adjust the availability and functionality of their servers to meet changing business demands and make the most of available resources without having to worry about future upgrades. The result of this approach is maximum return on investment and a more efficient, faster, and higher capacity on-premise solution.

The on-premise IT solutions we provide offer a higher level of performance and functionality than equivalent cloud-based solutions without the same long-term maintenance or upgrade support that cloud based services require. We provide intelligent services that automatically adjust to fluctuating requirements by scheduling and managing server placement according to demand. This allows Max Communications' on-premise solutions to scale up and down based on real-time traffic patterns.

Our Server & Networks Models service offers a scalable online file sharing and storage capability, allowing distributed businesses access to files and data wherever and whenever required. A shared infrastructure allows such businesses to easily establish physical connections to the file sharing and storage systems of others, while avoiding high security risk.

Max Communications’ on-premise IT solutions are scalable, reliable, and secure. Scalability is provided through the option of allowing customers to adjust the availability and functionality of servers to meet changing business demands, thus allowing them the choice of purchasing on-premise solutions which require more in-house IT resource, or cheaper SaaS alternative. Reliability and security are provided through the implementation of a robust security plan and continuous monitoring services, maintaining the highest levels of security whilst still allowing access from anywhere with an internet connection.

Our on-premise IT solutions are flexible to the extent that hybrid cloud/on-premise implementations can be rolled out. It should be noted however that the the two sets of solutions differ on a number of levels and do not share exactly the same feature set. Thus, when a company adopts a hybrid setup, it should make sure that both hybrid models address its unique business requirements.

Testimonials

I have worked with Max Communications and the team for some years. In recent work with their Archivematica iteration in the College Archives and Corporate Records Unit, and other digital work required by varying cohorts in Imperial, Max Communications have been responsive, innovative and demonstrated great problem-solving abilities. The Max Communications team, from the top down, is approachable, friendly and keen to help.

An example is in their engagement for some major confidential scanning projects. The projects were discussed, scoped and agreed to a high standard of hand scanning. Benchmarking was agreed to our satisfaction when the project started, with a fast progress time for the work. They provided rapid access to files, including digitising out of sequence, e.g. one such turn around for hand scanning, editing and proofing a large file was within 3 hours. The digital delivery was by secure online transfer, and the hard disks and hard copy delivered securely by courier.

On a lighter note, digitisation of 1960s academic cine film was carried out promptly and to a high standard, such that it can be reshown at a major conference
