Our History: 2000 to 2005
Our History: 2000 to 2005 avatar

The Millennium came and went without any hick ups as predicted by ourselves so long as you ensured that you had a recent BIOS and Operating System. Later that year, the market for PC’s dried up as most clients had recently replaced their computers the year before. In 2001, we decided to stop building PC’s and concentrate on our Consultancy and PC Support.

We added hosting and server support to the line up of services offered during 2002 and we started looking into Linux as an alternative to Microsoft servers. The cost implications and the security impact was immense and so we migrated our data services to Linux by 2003. CentOS became our choice.  This was the best thing we have ever done.  Less maintenance, less cost, better support, and security.  By the end of 2003, we became the go to house for Linux server support.

During 2004 and 2005, the computer hire side of the Business was showing signs of a massive slow down as many sole trader training companies were no longer hiring from us as laptops became cheaper. Where we used to be all over the United Kingdom with our hire equipment, we were only hiring around the London area. We decided to close the computer hire side in August 2005.
