A server purchase is probably the biggest technology investment that you will make, something you'll live with for the next half decade.
At Art Systems Canada Inc., we provide the Windows Server expertise necessary for helping Canadian businesses, from Montreal to Vancouver, answer these tough questions and ensure that they invest resources wisely now and in the future.
As experts in our field for the last 20 years, we truly understand hardware requirements associated with a Windows Server technology. With this knowledge, we help you evaluate the effectiveness your existing investments, assess your current and future needs and explain your options in detail before recommending any type of new investment. For example, companies that have already invested in Windows Server 2003 may decide it's most cost-effective to upgrade and maintain their existing server environment for another year or so before considering a complete upgrade. Others that have not yet invested may decide the time is right to move away from an individual PC or workgroup solution to a centralized Windows server infrastructure. We understand the idiosyncrasies of all these environments and are able to support and advise businesses with any server installation.

We leverage innovative management software to quickly and seamlessly perform these tasks, making sure everything from e-mail to critical business applications run smoothly.
