We were pleased to have a visit from local Surf legend and Surf Champion Mark ‘Egor’ Harris. Mark needed some email accounts setup on his MacBook Air. Mark was recommended to us from our mutual friend Andrew Griffin at Oracle Design. Andrew has introduced quite a number of new clients to us for which we are very grateful. Recommendation is the very best form of advertising,so with that in mind, head over to Foam Travel which is Mark’s new venture … if you need us I think we may be over in Norway !!!
February has been another busy month with clients old and new, Chris has been helping out PiratesQuest , Birdland and Flamingo Marketing with mail transition and setup for new staff, checkout their Facebook pages and Websites for more information. Compu-K have also been busy in some of the larger hotels in Newquay with visits to The Atlantic Hotel, The Hotel Bristol and The Pentire Hotel to name a few. Whether it was sorting out a MAC, getting the network prepared for a software application update or recovering an EPOS control PC we got things up and running with everyone back online in short order.
We also have called into long standing clients Callestick Farm Ice Cream …. no not for ice cream !!!!, Chris was actually working so he said !
What does End of Support mean for you?
After July 14, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your datacentre, you need to take steps now to plan and execute a migration strategy to protect your infrastructure. By migrating to Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure or Office 365, you can achieve concrete benefits, including improved performance, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased agility and speed of response to the business.
Windows Server 2003 was fantastic. Its reliability, easy deployment and regular updates made it a favourite for small and medium businesses across the globe. But that was in the past and all small businesses know that change is necessary to achieve success in this fast paced UK market. Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003 will reach their end of support on July 14th, 2015 consistent with our product lifecycle policy.
That means your business could be at risk if you are running your business on an old server. With no security patches, no hotfixes and possible compliance issues, you could open your business to potential security threats.
Windows Server 2012’s fantastic cloud functionality has been designed to meet the needs of modern SMBs; meaning an upgrade makes sense for both your staff, and your bottom line. Windows Server 2012 has simple and reliable backup to Microsoft Azure, giving you greater peace of mind that your data is there for you when you need it.
Move your business to a modern server OS before end of support. Microsoft has a number of industry leading alternatives to Server 2003.
Another busy time at Compu-K, we recently installed the new systems at Ace Engineering and all went very well with all the data transfer and setting up of the NAS drive. More work at some of the local hotels and providing new equipment down at Callestick Ice Cream for their new staff. Good luck to Sammy and Jess.
Ongoing support to several of our Legal and Accountancy clients and this week we were able to support Newquay AFC Youth by providing a Notebook PC for all their administration. Chris has been involved with Newquay AFC for many years with his Cornish Guardian / West Briton photographer’s hat on but we were pleased to get involved and avert the disaster with their existing system.
We are quite busy in the workshop at the moment with new builds for a local engineering company in Newquay and several private clients. Work on site maintains a brisk pace with support for a couple of hotels and various other local companies as well.
Well it’s week two of 2015 already ! Our move to Holywell over the Christmas break went well and we are pretty much settled in 🙂
Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years and are ready for the slog to your next holiday !
We are busy here and have helped one of our Solicitor clients with his acquisition of another practice ( also one of our clients !! ) and sorted out various other clients with their upgrades and repairs. This week sees us helping Celtic Sheepskin with their expansion – networking a new location with a new Data Cab and 48 LAN points.
Don’t forget we have moved location but all the numbers are still the same.
Talk to you again soon
Wishing all our customers a great Christmas and prosperous New Year. Thank You for your support this year. Just to remind you we have now completed the move to our new premises. Our telephone number and email details remain unchanged. Look forward to speaking to you all next year. We open again on the 2nd January 2015.
