24×7 Operations

Your data centers are the lifeblood of your company – their reliable, efficient operation is essential to your business.  TDS can provide 24x7x365 US based 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.

Comprehensive 24/7 Monitoring

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.

Support Methods 

TDS clients are proactively monitored and supported round the clock. We also provide 24/7 call center access and a secure, online portal for on-demand incident status visibility and ticket management. 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.

TDS also provides integrated remote control support for instant system access and remediation.  This allows us to resolve most issues safely and securely in less time than it would take to dispatch a technician onsite.

Proactive Operations

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.

  • TDS provides proactive services such as:
  • Data collection through monitoring
  • Device and application log file analysis
  • Infrastructure trend report review
  • Capacity planning
  • Patch management
  • Threat prevention

Incident Management

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.

Patch Management 

TDS automated Patch Management with centralized reporting simplifies the complex and costly process of managing and distributing patches. With our integrated solution, you get the best of both worlds – a centralized, Web-based patch monitoring, distribution and reporting system with the ability to manage patches across all locations and end-users on the network.

Change Management 

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.
