How Com-Com Reduces Your CostsOrganisations are under pressure to get better value from their IT spend and reduce their impact on the environment. We help our customers to do this in a number of ways:
Reducing capital expenditureBy extending the life of your EMC servers, you can delay and reduce your capex. Our EMC parts supply and EMC maintenance services extend your servers lives well beyond the support offered by the manufacturer.
Reducing operating costsOur EMC server maintenance service will save you 40% on the equivalent service from the manufacturer. Outsourcing systems administration and operating system support to us lowers your costs further, helps you to free up resources for other projects and gives you extra cover during sickness and holidays.
Environmental savingsWe are all aware how much energy it takes to manufacture equipment - often more than is ever consumed during its lifetime. If you can extend the life of your hardware by a year or two from say four years to six, then you may reduce that impact by a third. With virtualization you can eliminate many of your physical servers, reducing the need for new hardware and the power and cooling required to run them.
Supply and installation of EMC hardware upgradesIf you need hardware upgrades for your EMC hardware, Com-Com can specify, provide, install and configure them for you. These upgrades can be supplied no matter how old the equipment is - we have even supplied and set up upgrades for systems over 30 years old.

SAN Health Check: Keeping your SAN at the peak of performanceFor many of our customers, their EMC SAN is critical to the performance of their organisation. For this reason, we have designed the Com-Com SAN Health Check service to ensure that the SAN and the components it is attached to are in the healthiest state practicable. The SAN Health Check works in the following way:1. Discover opportunitiesThe first phase of the Com-Com SAN Health Check focuses on data gathering. This phase is either performed remotely or on-site. Configuration and event logs for storage processors, switches and connected hosts will be collected for review.2. Analyse performanceThe second phase of the SAN Health Check identifies current or potential issues in the environment as well as opportunities for reliability improvement. This phase is performed remotely. Error counters are reviewed to determine components that are degrading in performance and liable to fail. Logs are scrutinised to look for potential configuration problems and array-related events that affect the performance. Revisions of firmware and software components are examined to see whether they are up to the latest allowable level.A Statement of Proposed Works is presented to the customer recommending an action plan for execution in phase 3.3. Deliver improvementsIn the final phase, Com-Com's engineers perform the following tasks:
- Install any firmware updates that the customer is entitled to.
- Reconfiguration of any issues discovered in the Analysis phase.
