Systems & Servers Administration

“I am thankful that our district uses TechOps. They are dedicated professionals who are cost effective, efficient and just plain enjoyable to work with.” – Eric Hart, Gustavus School Technology Coordinator

Last year TechOps managed 32 physical servers and 43 virtual servers for 27 schools. The TechOps Network Services Management service gives small schools the IT department they need. TechOps acts as an extension of your IT department, or as your IT department.
