Our team does work that ranges from debugging dynamic routing protocols, writing nagios checks for an NTP servers, to tweaking the office 802.11b channels to avoid a noisy microwave all in the same day. Our responsibility is to ensure the technology supports and accelerates our business. Stability, scalability, fault tolerance, and automation are key properties of our solutions. We strive to provide our clients with 100% system availability, as we don't make money unless our clients do.
