F1 Advantage

Proactive monitoring of your servers and network

Not all businesses see the advantage in the rush to the cloud. For some, it makes better sense for essential infrastructure to remain. The F1 Advantage infrastructure services suite brings the best of both worlds – on-premises surety and security plus cloud-style, off-site proactive monitoring and maintenance of servers and network infrastructure.

Maximise your potential

Let us keep your organisation’s engine running smoothly.

Great business is conducted with powerful tools that offer insight, control, measurement, vision and precision. If those tools become unavailable, opportunity is lost.

An important part of the F1 Advantage managed services plan is the real-time, 24/7 monitoring and management of on-premises servers and network infrastructure. We watch over those systems, performing regular maintenance and listening out for emerging issues, to ensure they’re always in exceptional condition.

In fact, we improve the running of your essential systems. Having provided the service for hundreds of clients including large government departments, fast moving start-ups, not for profits, major corporates and more, we’ve seen and implemented best practice.

Our respected experts offer advice around excellence in management of on-premises infrastructure.

It all means you can maximise productivity and shift your focus to where it counts.

How we mind your business

The well-oiled operation of your business tools requires proactive monitoring and maintenance to prevent any costly interruptions. Here’s how we do it.

Server monitoring and management

Not only do we keep your servers finely tuned, we also apply patches and firmware updates, and at the end of each month we send a tailored, detailed maintenance report providing details of tasks undertaken and recommendations.

Network monitoring and support

Your network is a vital ingredient in your recipe for organisational success. We proactively monitor and manage your entire system around the clock to recognise emerging problems before they become significant ones that impact your business.

Backup and disaster recovery

It may be important that your infrastructure is on premises, but it is also essential to have a disaster recovery plan, including off-site backup. This provides protection against accidental deletion of important files and against malicious attacks that can cripple a business.

Antivirus protection

Our security team, which partners with some of the most respected security brands in the world, monitors your systems 24/7 for viruses, malware and other potential threats.

Internet and email

Your network is a vital ingredient in your recipe for organisational success. We proactively monitor and manage your entire system around the clock to recognise emerging problems before they become significant ones that impact your business.

NAATI’s testing system is robust, innovative and unique provides quality assurance and confidence to individuals who rely on translator and interpreter services to participate effectively in society.

St. Vincent de Paul

When F1 Solutions started this relationship with St Vincent de Paul Society (SVDP) Canberra/Goulburn, their senior management had the view that IT was a necessary expense rather than a strategic investment. Gradually, as they began to reap the benefits of a sound IT operating environment, their thinking shifted. Today SVDP view IT as an asset, and F1 Solutions and SVDP work in partnership to continually enhance the operational effectiveness of
the organisation.
