5S Technologies strives to continuously develop a “fan base” of customers through responsive, innovative, and technically proficient customer support. We provide customer-focused, value-add solutions which are technically superior and simple. We develop trusted relationships with customers and vendors to enhance our delivery to meet or exceed expectations.

Managed Services

Operating an IT environment isn’t easy. We are all working to maintain and stabilize the environment while also being focused on responsiveness and time-to-market. We are concerned with the quality but must also manage the cost. We provide re-active support but want to be more pro-active and enhance the perspective of our customers.
5S has experience working with customers to provide that boost needed to operate and maintain the ever-changing landscape. We provide staff that can work with your existing teams to raise the bar of customer satisfaction. By supplementing operations staff, you provide more time for education and downtime that allows for focus on troublesome items.

Design

 

Designing the right solution requires technical knowledge, experience, and a full understanding of the desired outcome.  5S has expert consultants and engineers on-staff to deliver these very important elements.  5S also employs a knowledge-sharing that allows all our engineers to benefit from each other’s past and present project experiences, ensuring refinement and increased service satisfaction to our customers.

5S follows proven methodologies of assessing, architecting, and implementing solutions to bring cost-effective, performance-enhancing technologies to use quickly.  These methods allow our customers to transform their environment and the way it’s managed, simplifying day-to-day tasks and operations management.  IT can maintain a strategic focus on solving meaningful business problems instead of being dragged into reactive issues.

Whether it be a process or architecture, 5S can deliver an effective solution.

 

Transition

 

It’s time to deploy that new architecture or that new process, but you still need to keep things moving.  You need to ensure you are able to maintain or improve the impacted service, ensuring no disruption.  The business is not going to stop for you to make that change, so how do you get to the other side?

5S can help simplify the transition by working with IT and the organization to ensure minimal service disruption or impact, and that the new service meets the desired outcome.  By working with both IT and organization entities, we can bring satisfaction to a higher level using proven methods.

Solutions

Data Center Modernization

 

While our engineers have many years of experience with different hardware vendors allowing us to work with any current IT configuration, we exclusively offer Nutanix for our compute platform.  Nutanix is the leader in hyper-converged technology and has numerous advantages over their competitors.  With ease of management and focus on density, Nutanix is the partner we trust for all jobs big and small.

Nutanix’s wide range of server platforms are purpose-built to handle the demands of the modern data center.  The performance, scalability and control is unrivaled, and the ease of administration and management make it an ideal replacement of legacy systems.

 

Networking

 

Our engineers primarily focus on Cisco and Meraki as our network solutions.

Cisco is the long-standing leader in network and telecommunications hardware, delivering smart, resilient solutions that can outperform many of their vendor’s solutions.  UCS is an extension of the Nexus platform and our engineers are well versed in the implementation of both Nexus and Catalyst-based solutions.

Meraki is the leader in cloud controlled WiFi, routing, and security. It is a smarter solution that improves the IT experience and simplifies deployment and management. Our engineers are experts at deploying and managing Meraki environments.

 

Virtualization

 

No matter which hypervisor your business has chosen, 5S can help you support and enhance your virtualized infrastructure.  With experience in all the major vendors, we can assist with the planning, implementation, and operations of your virtualized environment.

5S also specializes in VDI deployments, working with technologies from Citrix, VMWare and Microsoft to name a few.

So whether you are expanding your server footprint, consolidating legacy systems, or deploying a new virtual desktop solution, 5S has the experience and knowledge to assist your organization.

 

Data Protection

 

Managing the day-to-day environment can be hard enough, add to that managing a backup environment and it becomes twice the work!

5S looks to minimize the overhead of typical data protection solutions by working with technology from Veeam and Rubrik.  Although similar in their simplistic administration, they are distinctive solutions that fit unique needs.

Veeam is a major competitor to the larger brands when protecting a virtual or physical environment.  Having tie-ins to SRM and CBT, Veeam lets you take full advantage of your existing vendor’s capabilities and takes it a step further to provide even greater value.

Rubrik’s solutions are versatile, allowing for a completely self-managing environment, to a completely hosted solution (and every model in-between!)  Supporting a mix of both virtual and physical systems, Rubrik is great for the organization making strides in virtualization as well as considering hosted or multiple-site protection.

Need to back up to tape? No problem.  Need it to be off-site? No problem.  Need it to be cloud-based, multiple-site, fully redundant and have a 15 minute SLA?  We’ve got you covered.
