  • Web servers
  • Database servers, including redundant clusters
  • Monitoring solutions
  • Backups solutions
  • Disaster recovery solutions
  • Reporting solutions
  • Firewall/Proxy server solutions
  • Security audits including those necessary for PCI compliance
  • Intranet/Internet design and implementation (including this site)
  • VPN solutions
  • Network solutions (routers and switches)
  • Scripting solutions
  • Thin client solutions
  • Virtual hosting solutions
  • Hardware procurement
  • General recommendations on best practices in IT
