Mission Critical Computing

Uber-reliable sums up the real job of mission critical computing. “Mission Critical” is now used to describe both applications that would cause the company to fail, as well as those that cause extreme inconvenience. Many companies have expanded the number and types of applications they consider “mission-critical,” as we rely more and more on technology in our daily activities.  The cost of outages in our digital world has increased exponentially, while the amount of delay users can tolerate has decreased significantly.

At Comport, we think that downtime and slow response simply isn’t an option for many enterprises today.  Our infrastructure solutions support patient care, foreign exchange trades, online retailers, hedge funds and more.  We architect to proactively help you avoid risks. We’ll help you strategize, design, build, deploy and support mission critical solutions that deliver long-term value and IT stability for your business.

We work with HPE Integrity servers, UNIX, LINUX, Open VMS, Mission Critical Microsoft and VMware.  Looking ahead, our solutions are designed for today and tomorrow; helping you to anticipate and manage current and future enterprise demands.

Expect the best, and know you are also well-prepared for the unexpected. That’s critical. So it’s our mission for you.
