Support services available to small and mid-size companies in the Santa Cruz area by Progent's staff of seasoned engineering professionals include:

  • Microsoft's desktop virtualization technologies lower the work needed for network administrators to install software programs so they are standardized across an entire workforce, provide the power to manage access to critical data, and allow quick installation of additional or updated workstations. With Windows Server 2008 R2, the Terminal Services tool has been revamped and renamed Remote Desktop Services (RDS). Microsoft's new Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) behind Remote Desktop Services simplifies desktop access, enhances performance, tightens data security, centralizes administration, and offers an almost seamless client experience. Progent's Windows Server 2008 R2 engineers can help your company to assess the business benefits of Microsoft's desktop virtualization technologies, configure pilot and on-line environments, optimize your network infrastructure to accommodate virtual clients effectively, evaluate and remediate security problems, and train your IT administrators to follow best practices to achieve a fast ROI from client virtualization.

  • For advanced project management support, Progent can provide access to senior IT experts with years of experience as IT project managers for program development, information technology implementation, and business process re-engineering working with organizations from Big 4 companies to dot-com startups to government agencies. These high-level IT managers can provide advanced management skills to assist enterprise clients to adhere to best practices to ensure that major projects are completed on time and on budget.

  • Virtualization technology allows many logical machines to operate in safe isolation from each other on one physical host system. Virtual machine (VM) technology reduces equipment and maintenance costs, allows a mix of OS platforms to utilize the same computer, simplifies provisioning and teardown, enhances availability, and allows on-demand resource assignment, which is vital for cloud computing. Progent's virtualization experts can provide Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V hybrid cloud solutions, Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V expertise, Windows Server 2012 R2 network virtualization support services, Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Virtual Server consulting, VMware vSphere deployment, and Citrix XenServer support.
