We have a Windows dedicated server and need general ongoing maintenance and a couple of immediate projects.
1. We already have a mirror server setup where the contents are copied to another server. We need you to review and make sure it is working properly. If not, we need help finding another dedicated server company and to reconfigure the mirror setup so that if server 1 goes down, the second rolls over for the traffic to the site.
1. Server actualizations
2. Actualize virus protection
3. Install new upgrades on mail server, etc.
4. Most important: Be available from Monday to Friday from 7 am PST to 8 pm via instant messenger for on call work or projects (help with a server problem, stop a process that is hanging server, or other emergency.)
5. Make minor changes to things on the website (php, asp, etc.)
6. Backup databases (MS SQL),Mysql
7. Check and close ports and monitor server for security issues and hackers
8. Any other recommendations you have
Can you give a pricing for the first project, and an hourly rate for the second stuff and confirm that you will have availability on a daily basis for the hourly work in the ongoing maintenance?
Also, what other maintenance do you recommend that should be performed?
