We’re not referring to our better halves, but well-established relationships with major suppliers so the hardware we offer is reliable, responds to the needs of each network we set up and is competitively priced.
Our business moved to Netscreen Technologies many years ago, before Juniper acquired Netscreen. We followed our favourite firewalls to Juniper who then bought out the SSG series firewall and we still have of these in production today. We now have added the Juniper MX series routers and EX series switches to our data centre and customer solutions. Although the SSG firewalls are still available to purchase, the SRX range has taken its place in firewall technology. We have found the SRX series to be a robust solution offering all the features required to build a solid network infrastructure. Juniper is a unique network vendor that allows one software platform, JUNOS, to prevail throughout their complete range of products. We love it and reckon you will too!
We only have recently moved to Fortinet as an alternative firewall security solution in the SMB space. We have found its security solutions offer a unique experience and feature set for our customers out of the box.

As with Fortinet, IT Basecamp has recently been deploying EMC storage systems into customer sites that require reliable storage and retrieval. The product focus from EMC has been with the VNX/VNXe range, an affordable hybrid flash storage solution.
If you ask any network engineer out there that has worked with Extreme they will all agree that Extreme Networks have the best CLI available. Not that that is why you should use Extreme but the transfer of that CLI into switching performance is second to none. We choose Extreme to complement many areas of our core switching environment because it just works!

Hewlett Packard is our partner of choice for everything from laptops to storage SANS to backup tape drives. We have come to appreciate the quality of their equipment over many years of use. Steve can often be found telling us how else he has squeezed some more performance out of our Left Hand SAN solutions. If you think HP is a fit for you, then so do we!
We have come to rely on Lenovo laptops and workstations as an alternative to HP systems. It becomes the Ford and Holden routine with choosing Lenovo. Some customers prefer Lenovo so we have it available in our product offerings. We think Lenovo's equipment is of equal quality to Hewlett Packard and its laptops are still a favourite with our technicians.
