Microsoft Infrastructure Services

Our Microsoft Infrastructure team has deep, specialized skills and many years of experience in implementing, upgrading and consolidating complex Microsoft infrastructures. Exchange and Messaging, Unified Communication and Active Directory are our focus.

Our expertise includes assessments, health checks, upgrades, consolidations and new implementations for the following products

  • Microsoft Exchange Server
  • Microsoft Lync 2010
  • Microsoft Office Communications Server
  • Symantec Enterprise Vault
  • Blackberry Enterprise Server
  • Microsoft Windows Server

Our holistic solution approach ensures success by identifying products that provide additional value and functionality.  For example, during a transition to the latest version of Exchange, we discuss and assess mobility, archiving, virtualization, and high availability and disaster-recovery products.  We work directly with our vendors and other expert groups on the Mainland team to make sure other pieces such as storage, backup/recovery and virtualization for Exchange makes sense.  It’s not just Exchange.

Evidence of our expertise is that we're a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, the highest level in their partner ecosystem program. Additionally, we are Symantec Gold Partner and a go-to partner of theirs to offer consulting services for their clients.

Over the last three years we have touched over a quarter of a million mailboxes; we have led the two largest Enterprise Vault implementations in Alberta – one was the second largest in Canada; we have successfully transitioned over a half a dozen Exchange environments with more than 4,000 users; we have consolidated numerous Active Directory environments and we have countless happy customers!
