24x7 Monitoring and Alerting
Your data centers are the lifeblood of your company – their reliable, efficient operation is essential to your business. TDS can provide 24x7x365 onshore support for all or part of your IT infrastructure or we can back up your internal staff after normal business hours or provide coverage for remote locations. TDS Monitoring Services assure end-to-end application availability, and the custom dashboards built for each client give you the insight to ensure that the applications, devices, and infrastructure critical to your success are online.
Remote Monitoring & Management: Servers, Applications & Network
Utilizing an optimized mix of best-of-breed remote monitoring and management (RMM) tools TDS automates and monitors routine IT service activities, leading to a dramatic increase in efficiency. TDS tools connect to a broad range of devices including:
- Windows servers and workstations
- Linux, Mac OS X and other server and desktop operating systems
- Routers, switches and other network equipment
- Firewalls, security devices and anti-malware appliances and applications
TDS tools provide real-time visibility into the end-to-end application environment including applications, servers, virtualization, storage and network to quickly detect and diagnose the root cause issues that affect service delivery. And, every client has their own customized, secure portal for full access to all the information and reporting for their environment.
Effective asset management provides improved corporate transparency and governance, reduces the cost of support, increases network security and improves budget and upgrade planning. Along with asset discovery, TDS tools provide comprehensive asset reporting including hardware inventory reports, detailed asset reports, patch levels, security status and software inventory reports.
Operational reports are available on-line and will be reviewed with you on a routine basis. Information contained in the reports includes items such as application availability, performance metrics, resource utilization, infrastructure statistics, service level analysis and risk analysis.
The primary objective of incident management services is to resume the regular state of operations as quickly as possible and to minimize the impact of IT issues on your organization's business.
Typically, TDS provides our clients with 24/7/365 Level 1 support on an SLA basis. Incident response is managed according to predefined procedures with appropriate escalation to you and to higher-level TDS support personnel. Client personnel always have access to TDS Service Engineers via telephone and through an online ticketing portal. TDS Service Engineers assist in identifying and, where possible, repairing problems. In the event that the problem cannot be resolved via Level 1 support, the Service Engineer escalates the issue to a Level 2 or Level 3 TDS Support Engineer. TDS provides Level 2 and 3 support services as a remediation path for more complex issues related to systems, networks, storage, databases and more.
Online Ticketing Portal
TDS provides an online Ticketing Portal as a fast, secure and convenient way to submit and access your ticket information online. You can use the portal to open a new ticket, make updates to an existing ticket, add attachments, find specific information about an incident and keep apprised of the progress of incident resolution.
Remote Control Support
TDS delivers integrated remote control support to securely connect to a wide range of remote devices, anytime, anywhere. Using innovative technology, TDS can connect to devices located anywhere on the Internet without compromising security and without requiring a public IP address. Our technicians can take control of virtually any device and start troubleshooting and fixing issues immediately – all done securely through a single Web-based management console.
TDS responds to both proactive and reactive change requests from your business. Changes to your computing environment are managed with formal control processes that insure that exposure to risks is minimized, the impact of potential service interruption is limited, and the change is implemented successfully on the first attempt. All environment changes are recorded, assessed, prioritized, planned, tested, implemented and documented.
The primary objective of the TDS problem management process is to prevent problems and incidents, eliminate repeating incidents, and minimize the impact of incidents that cannot be prevented.
As part of this service, TDS consultants work to diagnose the root cause of incidents to find permanent solutions, and then insure the solution is implemented through the correct control procedures such as change and release management.
In order to deliver IT services in a cost-effective manner, while maintaining required service levels, IT must adopt a proactive approach to managing the complex and highly dynamic data center. By gathering and analyzing data, and monitoring the development of trends, you can more effectively make both short-term and long term decisions about your IT environment. Acting more proactively requires the ability to anticipate problems based on observed conditions and to take action to prevent those problems.

- Data collection through monitoring
- Device and application log file analysis
- Infrastructure trend report review
- Capacity planning
- Patch management
- Threat prevention
