Network Operating Systems
Network operating system refers to software that implements an operating system of some kind that is oriented to computer networking. For example, one that runs on a server and enables the server to manage data, users, groups, security, applications, and other networking functions. The network operating system is designed to allow shared file and printer access among multiple computers in a network, typically a local area network (LAN), a private network or to other networks.
In this area, Orbcom Team has a strong experience with all type of Servers: Active Directory, Open Ldap, File & Terminal, Email and others.
A computer network consists of two or more computers, and typically other devices such as printers, external hard drives, modems and routers, that are linked together so that they can communicate with each other and thereby exchange commands and share data, hardware and other resources. There are many types of computer networks, including local-area networks (LANs) - The computers are geographically close together (that is, in the same building) and wide-area networks (WANs) - The computers are farther apart and are connected by telephone lines or radio waves.
The first step in solving IT performance issues and developing solutions to the daily challenges facing company’s employees is to fully understand existing IT network infrastructure of each customer. Orbcom can collaborate with your company to decide the right technology, strategy and budget to achieve your business objectives.
Virtualization is a process in which a physical computer a.k.a. host computer contains virtual machines that are stored in them in form of files. These virtual machines act exactly the way the physical computers do and can be mapped with the NICs of the host computers. Once mapped, the operating systems installed inside the virtual machines (Guest Operating Systems) can then communicate with the host computers as well as the network setups to which the host computers might be connected.
In IT industry, the term virtualization is frequently used nowadays. The reason behind this is that with the help of virtualization solutions, organizations can reduce their expenses remarkably while providing better user experiences to the end-users at the same time. When virtualization technology is implemented in any organization, the entire configuration and functioning of the technology remains completely transparent to the users. This means that if administrators have created virtual machines inside the host computers and have connected them with the physical network environments, users who access their data that might reside inside virtual machines would never know if they were accessing their data from the virtual machines or from the host computers.
Network security consists of the provisions and policies adopted by a network administrator to prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources. Network security involves the authorization of access to data in a network, which is controlled by the network administrator. Users choose or are assigned an ID and password or other authenticating information that allows them access to information and programs within their authority.
Network security covers a variety of computer networks, both public and private, that are used in everyday jobs conducting transactions and communications among businesses, government agencies and individuals. Network security is involved in organizations, enterprises, and other types of institutions. It does as its title explains: It secures the network, as well as protecting and overseeing operations being done. The most common and simple way of protecting a network resource is by assigning it a unique name and a corresponding password.
Storage & Backup
Every companies need a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated, block level data storage. This is what is called storage area network (SAN).
SANs are primarily used to enhance storage devices, such as disk arrays, tape libraries, and optical jukeboxes, accessible to servers so that the devices appear like locally attached devices to the operating system. A SAN typically has its own network of storage devices that are generally not accessible through the local area network (LAN) by other devices.
At this point Orbcom Technical Team works with great Storage Solutions in all environments: Cloud, Virtualization, Backups.
Cloud Managed Services
Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services.
A cloud service can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and because the service provider supplies the hardware and software necessary for the service, there’s no need for a company to provision or deploy its own resources or allocate IT staff to manage the service. Orbcom provides security, integrity and confidentiality of business information with the help of security solutions (firewall, antivirus and anti-spam), backups and disaster recovery.
