The importance of good Server Support in London

A server is the most used piece of technology in any organization. All the business software that runs on the server makes it a central platform for all the technical needs of the employees. The various software for which the server acts as a central hub may include; accounting software, software related to CRM, ERP application or even HR. There are so many applications that run on the operating system of the servers that it’s very crucial to maintain the operating system in optimal health, in order to avoid the working of the whole organization to come to a standstill. Now it’s a fact, as far as technology is concerned; more the usage of a technology, more will be the number of technical problems it will face.

While athletes the world over prepare for the performance of a lifetime, in London, one race has already begun. For the past three years, a small army of strategists and technicians has been hard at work, putting the network infrastructure technology in place for what aims to be one of the biggest and most connected events the world has ever seen.
The organisational challenges alone are immense. The London 2012 Games will need to support a working population the size of Guildford across almost a hundred locations. Security, offline and on, is paramount. The amount of data involved – from live high definition images to multiple event scheduling – is staggering. And that's before the 10 million or so spectators turn up.
