Welcome to our latest newsletter.

In our July edition we have a number of articles discussing common IT issues and how to prepare for, or prevent them. 

• We look at the real cost of downtime to your business and its common causes, how you can detect issues, prepare and minimise the impact.
• We discuss out of hours support and what you can do if your network fails in the middle of the night.
• We examine network performance and how you can use monitoring to keep your infrastructure running at its best.
• Finally we look at network monitoring and how it can be used to gauge server health.

We have two new case studies this month.

• We look at how Mutiny is used by Scottish National Heritage to support infrastructure across its 40 sites the length and breadth of Scotland.
• We examine the Mutiny installation at the Pirbright institute and how it has helped to support its 500+ users.

As usual if you have any questions or would like to talk to us about how Mutiny can help you to pro-actively monitor your technology then feel free to get in touch.
