We have solved major computing problems in large and small companies alike by introducing them to the Linux ecosystem - And saved them money while at it. The Linux ecosystem contains a solution for all enterprise infrastructure areas, from network routers and firewalls to email servers and filters. Toshnix Systems engineers know how to harness all these solutions to solve your problems very quickly and save you money!
You do not have to pay for an expensive CISCO router. Well, chances are that you don't. For the vast majority of enterprises, Linux-based routers offer massive cost savings and are much more feature-rich and much more flexible than other proprietary routing devices. In almost all cases, a small well configured Linux-based router can handle 100Mbps of external traffic. And while doing that, Toshnix Systems can configure it to protect your network through a full firewall, handle your NAT, share your bandwidth among your users fairly and prioritize crucial low-latency traffic. But not only that, the same small Linux-based router configured by Toshnix Systems engineers can be your Wireless Access Point and provide WPA 2 Radius Server services while at it. We can also configure the advanced routing services such as BGP (to several ISPs, with fail-over), source routing e.t.c. Toshnix features full Mikrotik RouterOS expertise, as well as OpenWRT customization & configuration expertise. See our network page for more details.
Can't or don't want to jump on the "cloud" bandwagon and want to host your own email infrastructure? Toshnix Systems will can build you a first class email solution. Recently, a major Kenyan corporation was experiencing all manner of problems with its self-hosted email servers. They had crippling problems with spam, bandwidth saturation by undeliverable spam emails and lost emails when their network connection failed for a long time. Toshnix System's engineers solved all these problems for the company quickly and at minimal cost. Using Postfix, our preferred email server solution in which we have full technical expertise, we rapidly built for them an email infrastructure that reduced spam to a trickle, eliminated outgoing spam by compromised computers on their network, eliminated all false spam positives and throttled email server bandwidth usage by configuring our solution to reject all undeliverable mail after reading the incoming headers. The latter was achieved by integrating our solution with their Microsoft Active Directory system. Contact Toshnix Systems now to learn how we can solve all your self-hosted email problems at the lowest costs possible. See our page on email servers for more details.
How valuable is your data to you? Toshnix Systems has a full, state-of-the art enterprise backup solution for you. Our backup system, featuring open and free components from the Linux ecosystem, has everything you need in a reliable backup system, including:
For many enterprises, especially in difficult economic times, the license fees of the Microsoft Exchange email and groupware suite are prohibitive or burdensome. Yet Toshnix Systems can set you up with a free groupware suite that handles the vast majority of an enterprise's groupware suite requirements. Ask Toshnix Systems to install, configure and/or customize Zimbra. Zimbra is now the groupware system of choice for all enterprises, including large enterprises. And we at Toshnix Systems know how to configure, secure and optimize it. If are already running Microsoft Exchange, we can quickly and painlessly migrate you! See our groupware page for more details.
One of the things Toshnix does very well is helping enterprises migrate from proprietary systems to Linux. And undoubtedly our widest experience is migration from Microsoft Windows Domain Controllers to samba.
We are a full-service samba consultancy shop and will help you smoothly implement it or transition to it as a file server, print server or backup domain controller. In addition, we are now offering samba 4 preview installation and customization services. Samba 4 will implement full Microsoft Active Directory services when it is complete. It is now in an Alpha development stage.
In our samba 3 implementation and migration projects, we frequently enhance the setup with the employment of Kerberos for authentication and LDAP for directory services. Our LDAP and Kerberos implementations of choice are industry-standard fully-featured open-source projects. Combining Linux workstations for the corporation, Samba 3, LDAP and Kerberos is a winning formula to get all the benefits of Microsoft Active Directory at minimal cost. And Toshnix Systems can help you get there. See our samba, LDAP & Kerberos and migration pages for more information.
