Who we are
Dogsbody Technology takes the pain away from building, securing and maintaining Linux servers.
We work with web, application & e-commerce developers, allowing you to get on with perfecting your product, while we do the expert work of keeping your data safe and your projects live.
Infrastructure is cheap. Securing it isn’t.
With our vendor agnostic advice, our UK based security cleared experts can save you money and help you grow your business.
Working with Dogsbody Technology means you get a dedicated technical contact, enabling quick and easy access to the technical skills you need.
Unlike staff, your business never sleeps, which is why we back that up with 24/7 support by a team of SysAdmins always available for you.
As the name Dogsbody implies, our solutions covers a wide range of skills and abilities. We work with businesses to streamline existing infrastructures, making the most of your investment.
SysAdmin – A lot of companies have the development skills in-house to build the sites or tools they need but don’t have the ability to put them online in a secure way. Let us worry about the system administration of your server. We will ensure it is locked down, patched and as secure as possible so that you can concentrate on your customers and development.
Cloud Computing – You may want servers that you can turn on and off at the drop of a hat, or storage requirements that can grow as you do. Let us guide you and show you the differences between AWS (Amazon Web Services), Rackspace and all the other providers, so you can make decisions that are right for you.
Virtualisation – We are fully VMware VCP (VMware Certified Professional) trained with experience of running small local or large cross-server installations. As well as VMware Server and ESX knowledge, we actively use tools such as VirtualBox or XEN.
Security – Without exception, the team is a combination of BPSS and SC security cleared.
Get us involved at any point in the process. From design through planning, development, testing, deployment and support. We have the skills and experience needed to get the job done.
We believe in giving back
- We aim to contribute to open source with as much of our in-house code as possible. Whenever we identify a failure in others’ code, we will always push back up stream.
- We are working to look after our local community.
At Christmas, whilst we love our customers, rather than buying them presents, we contribute the same funds to the local food bank. We think that means much more.
We believe in the spirit of apprenticeship
Not everyone is academic. Schools aren’t always the best place to teach modern computing and engineering techniques. Apprenticeships give a fantastic opportunity for students and employers… especially for a growing business, like ours.
We believe in doing the right thing
Ethically, we’re sound. We treat our staff right. We pay them well. We look after our suppliers and pay on time. We are obsessed about customer service. We pride ourselves on our customer service.
Cliches? Maybe. Put us to the test, and we’ll prove ourselves …
