The increase in energy costs implies additional expenses with infrastructures such as data centers. Eurotux shares some guidelines to combat this scenario.

Eurotux recommends strategies that allow companies to reduce their energy footprint and, consequently, the cost of their IT infrastructure at the end of the month.

The sharp increase in energy costs has obvious implications in the expenditure that companies have with infrastructures such as data centres, for example. In the world of Information Technologies, the cost of operations has been increasing, threatening the profitability and viability of companies. Therefore, organizations seek ways to face this threat with the tools that IT and the market places at their disposal. Eurotux recommends the implementation of a strategy based on three pillars which should be explored separately or cumulatively, depending on the nature of the business.

Equipment with superior energy performance: naturally, this solution implies an initial investment, but this is quickly amortised with constant use of the hardware over the years. The main manufacturers of technological equipment have renewed their portfolio with more energy-efficient offers, which can become major allies in the fight against rising energy costs. The need to change equipment can also create an impulse to change the architecture of existing infrastructures by introducing more compact, intelligent and simple to manage solutions, which also help save energy. Companies such as Eurotux contemplate a solution rental model, eliminating the initial acquisition cost.

2) Services outsourcing: by using external resources for their operations, companies can ensure a reduction in costs, especially energy costs. Take the example of outsourcing data and information management. By contracting a cloud service provider for this task, companies eliminate the energy cost inherent to having this information in their data centre, on their premises, where in addition to electrical consumption they must assume the recurring cost of cooling systems.
3) Remote services: for a significant number of companies the reality has changed with COVID-19 and good practices for service delivery have remained that were not previously a priority and in some cases were even rejected. By using remote services – for example for technical assistance or specific services such as database management – enterprises have access to services with a more competitive value – as the service provider does not spend fuel or other energy to ensure the same.

Jorge Paiva, Head of Sales at Eurotux, explains that “at a time of demanding challenges, the way we respond to rising energy costs in companies can make all the difference in the competitiveness of companies and the way they position themselves in the market”. Jorge Paiva also ensures that “organizations such as Eurotux can be a key partner in the common front against rising energy costs, ensuring a scalable, adaptable and dynamic offer, capable of adjusting to the needs of all types of clients”.

Eurotux introduces Trust by Eurotux https://eurotux.com/2022/10/eurotux-introduces-trust-by-eurotux/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 11:47:55 +0000 https://eurotux.com/?p=15999 Eurotux, a company specialized in implementing information and communication technology solutions tailored to its clients' needs, now offers its latest service - Trust by Eurotux.

The company redesigned its outsourcing offer to provide a service tailored to the needs of each client

Eurotux, a company specialized in implementing information and communication technology solutions tailored to its clients’ needs, now offers its latest service – Trust by Eurotux.

Designed for companies that traditionally rely on a very small team – often a single professional – Trust by Eurotux aims to answer companies’ main challenges regarding this dependency:

  • Difficulty in retaining staff: with a market marked by voracious competition, companies struggle to be able to attract and retain talent in IT-related areas.
  • One-man show: many companies centralize in a single professional all the management of IT policies and infrastructure. When this professional leaves the company, the company faces a period of disruption that has obvious impacts on the business.
  • Static training: in this scenario, companies count on a professional who makes his know-how available, but who is not subject to constant training and specialization – an essential argument in a world where cybersecurity is mainly based on knowledge.

With Trust by Eurotux, Eurotux clients have an IT professional dedicated to the specifics of their infrastructure and business needs. Trust by Eurotux guarantees immediate access to a Eurotux ICT professional dedicated to the company and their replacement in case of unavailability, due to holidays or other reasons.

The allocation of the professional to the client benefits from great flexibility, to ensure that the demands of the business and its variations in terms of the nature of tasks or workflow are met. Thus, the resource may be allocated five days a week at the client’s premises, but the client may choose to receive the resource in a mixed face-to-face/remote model and limited to a few days a week, if this model is the most appropriate.

The IT professional who will provide the services will also act as a point of contact with Eurotux, in order to benefit from the know-how and skills of the entire Eurotux team, if necessary. Furthermore, there is a contractual obligation of total confidentiality regarding the client’s business and data.

Eurotux professionals are duly prepared to guarantee a wide range of ICT services, such as Helpdesk tasks, hardware installation and configuration, operating system installation, IT park and licensing plan management, and implementation of cybersecurity policies at various levels.

Jorge Paiva, Head of Sales do Grupo Eurotux

Jorge Paiva, Head of Sales of Eurotux Group, explains that “the creation of the Trust by Eurotux solution was the company’s response to a gap we identified in the national market, characterized by a scenario in which many companies place all responsibilities of implementation, management and maintenance of IT infrastructures in the hands of one or two people – with the inherent challenges for the business when that person is unavailable or leaves the company“. 

Jorge Paiva emphasizes that “Trust by Eurotux was designed with the necessary flexibility to perfectly adapt to each client’s needs and allows them to have in Eurotux a partner that always assures the necessary human resources to reach their goals“.

Eurotux, through its subsidiaries ITMZ and Dipcode, are the consortium responsible for the construction of the web portal of the Mphanda Nkuwa hydroelectric project and the associated energy transport infrastructure for its proper operation.

The project will be located downstream of the existing Cahora Bassa Dam and is of paramount importance to Mozambique as a reliable source of clean, low-cost electricity. Mphanda Nkuwa is the largest hydroelectric project under development in Mozambique. Its low power generation costs combined with relatively limited environmental and social implications make the 1,500 MW project a high priority for the Government of this country.

Dipcodes’s responsibilities include the development, implementation and maintenance of the portal – a privileged vehicle for stakeholder information, with special relevance in terms of informing the population and investors. ITMZ is responsible for the local management of the project and the hosting technical services required for the proper functioning of this essential element for the project’s digital footprint strategy in Mozambique. Dipcode will be responsible for the development and maintenance of the portal, designed in WordPress, a technology with which the company has already developed other sites such as unibanco.pt and visao.pt.

The portal is currently under development and is expected to be operational by early January 2023.

The challenge

Pétis, from Ageas Portugal Group, launched the first ecosystem for dogs and cats in Portugal, with food, protection, services and more. As main challenges for the implementation of this platform Pétis identified the need to accommodate the potential sustained growth and according to the needs, ensure compliance with the highest security requirements. In addition, arguments such as competitiveness in terms of installation costs and maintenance of services were essential given the nature of the company and the fact that it is a newly established company.

The solution

An infrastructure was created in two distinct datacentres in order to provide a fully redundant production environment, as well as a Disaster Recovery environment that can be used to replace the production environment in case of need. Approval and integrated testing environments were also made available.
Besides the infrastructure supply, Eurotux guarantees the platforms’ availability with permanent attention (24×7). Furthermore, taking into consideration the worsening of cybercrime and the numerous attacks against companies and organizations, Eurotux dedicated special care to the implemented solution in order to guarantee the highest levels of infrastructure cybersecurity. Infrastructure status monitoring, maintenance and scalability analysis are some of the services Eurotux provides to Ageas Group’s new brand.

The aftermath

For a start-up, it is important to have a partner that advises and accompanies the company with a view to its growth, ensuring cost control and without jeopardising the security and good performance of its services.
The implemented solution adds scalability to the infrastructure and provides it with cybersecurity arguments which are essential to protect Pétis’ business.
Eurotux also assumed the role of added value with Pétis and its partners.

The company is preparing to increase its team in Portugal by 16

Eurotux, a company specialized in implementing information and communication technology solutions tailored to its clients’ needs, is preparing to make the largest hiring in its 22 year history in Portugal.

The Group, which operates in Portugal through the companies Eurotux and Dipcode, will increase its team in Portugal by 16% in September, with the hiring of 11 new people to integrate the national team.

The new hires are mostly young masters students – some of whom have already had internship experience with Eurotux Group. The technical skills of the new team members will allow them to reinforce the positions of Systems Administration, Project Management, Data Science and Software Engineering.

The new team members will start at the end of September and will reinforce the teams working in Braga, although by the very nature of Eurotux’s business, they will also be able to respond to the group’s needs throughout the entire national territory and also for the group’s companies in other territories, as is already the case with clients in the United Kingdom.

Marlene Silva, Human Resources Manager of the Eurotux Group, explains that “the arrival of these new professionals represents the group’s largest single hiring in Portugal since its creation in 2000”. The Group’s Human Resources manager states that “the close relationship between the group and higher education institutions which have computer engineering courses – such as the University of Minho – allows Eurotux to identify talent on time and look for the right professionals at the right time to meet market challenges and our clients’ needs”.

IBM has announced a significant expansion of its Power10 server line-up with the introduction of mid-range systems to modernise, secure and automate business applications and IT operations to help its customers meet new business demands.

Successful companies invest in many different areas, such as Cloud, Hybrid Cloud or Multicloud, SAP HANA, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Analytics, Linux, etc. Technology plays a critical role in these areas and IBM responds consistently, both by ensuring current performance, with current applications, and by ensuring in the future the decisions that will be made. All this with servers that combine performance, scalability and flexibility, notably through new “pay-as-you-go” consumer offerings, for example, where new services can be performed in multiple environments.

Stability and reliability are hallmarks of these solutions. In fact, according to ITIC’s survey of 1200 corporations in 28 markets, IBM Power has an availability rate of 99.999% or higher. The platform is renowned for its ability to scale and adjust performance according to clients’ needs, as well as its enviable virtualisation capabilities and security, which guarantees better isolation and integrated resources.

All this without neglecting the traditional brand image in terms of the “Security” of application compatibility since the launch of the IBM System 36, more than 30 years ago. Even today there are applications created in an IBM System/36 environment running fully on today’s IBM Power without any code rewriting.

Eurotux is the IBM Partner with the largest installed base of IBM Power servers and has recently received the “Systems Autonomy Partner” award from IBM. With the launch of this IBM offer, Eurotux is prepared to provide its clients with an upgrade of IBM Power servers, making available a competitive commercial offer with an good cost/performance ratio. All this while ensuring current functionality.

Eurotux reinforces its MSP offer of Sophos’ solutions https://eurotux.com/2022/08/eurotux-reinforces-its-msp-offer-of-sophos-solutions/ Wed, 10 Aug 2022 21:00:00 +0000 https://eurotux.com/?p=15462 Eurotux has reinforced its Managed Services portfolio with Sophos cybersecurity solutions.

Eurotux has reinforced its Managed Services portfolio with Sophos cybersecurity solutions.

In a particularly demanding scenario regarding cybersecurity challenges, the traditional software licensing model is not always the most adequate. The acquisition of annual licenses, which do not always take into account network types, the number of endpoints or infrastructure evolution, is being abandoned in favour of an approach focused on service, where Managed Service Providers (MSPs) such as Eurotux are assertive responses to customer needs.

As a Sophos Certified MSP, once part of the MSP Connect Program, Eurotux makes Sophos’ resources available to the market, benefiting customers of:

  • Next generation cybersecurity system backed by the power of artificial intelligence
  • Native cloud protection in a single console
  • Flexible pricing service that allows you to keep pace with business growth
  • Simplified and agile licence management
  • Integration with leading RMM and PSA providers

Eurotux also complements its MSP offer with the possibility of enriching infrastructure protection through the implementation of services such as the Security Operations Center (SOC), a security monitoring service which, through technologies and services, enables its clients to timely identify threats so that they can implement adequate containment and/or incident treatment measures.

orge Paiva, Eurotux’s Commercial Director

Jorge Paiva, Eurotux’s Commercial Director, points out that “the relationship that Sophos and Eurotux have had for several years allows us, as MSPs, to provide our clients with this manufacturer’s enviable portfolio. In the current scenario, our clients have the advantage of being able to access the most innovative and advanced cybersecurity technologies through a Eurotux service delivery model that is scalable with their business and needs and that ensures access at competitive prices”.

Information security is fundamental in everything we do at Eurotux. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards when it comes to ensuring the security of processes, people and technology that support all of our services. Eurotux is now ISO27001 certified, which reflects its commitment to the principles of trust, transparency and the application of best practices regarding Information Security for both the organization itself and its clients, and makes it possible to reduce risk and improve information protection. This is the second Eurotux Group company certified in this standard, since Raycon UK was already certified several years ago. 

Eurotux has been putting this standard’s technical controls into practice for several years, both for the organization itself and for the clients it serves, raising its maturity and responding to some clients’ requests, having recently decided to move forward with the formal certification process.

The ISO/IEC 27001 standard specifies the requirements for an Information Security Management System, thus enabling organisations to assess their risks and implement the necessary procedures to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. 

With the ISO27001 certification, Eurotux proves, among other arguments, its commitment to information security. The ultimate goal of this certification is to ensure higher levels of confidence and satisfaction for clients, users, partners, regulatory and judicial entities, demonstrating a high commitment to information protection and a considerable level of comfort for those who interact with entities that process and store personal data – goals which are fully aligned with Eurotux’s strategy.

Eurotux, a company specialized in providing custom infrastructure services, including managed services, shares with its clients some of the many advantages of outsourcing service management. 

Eurotux has 22 years of experience in managed services, which is one of the advantages of using this company’s services. With Eurotux, the customer can have access to a set of continuous and adapted infrastructure management services which help maintain secure and reliable operations.

Living Offices - Eurotux
  • Customer peace of mind: 24/7 monitoring, support and maintenance service. Customers can create service requests to the service desk based on their needs. They are also entitled to regular alignment of the maintenance plan with best practice in infrastructure management. This plan, carried out by the service manager, includes proactive maintenance measures, including software updates, reinforcement and verification of security policies and data security testing. 
  • Monitoring Service: Incidents reported by the customer or originated in the monitoring platform (of infrastructures, applications) are analysed and resolved by those responsible for monitoring. The customer does not have to worry about service reviews, configurations or software updates. In addition, the customer has a complete, real-time view of the status of the infrastructure.
  • Database Administration (DBA): DBA services ensure the availability and performance of databases (mySQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle), guaranteeing user access control, data security management and alignment of the data model to application needs.
  • IT Security: More than ever, information systems security is crucial to keep the service running. The security team controls network and system security perimeter and periodically reviews the efficiency of controls (security audit) to mitigate the risk of system attacks. In this scenario, Eurotux provides the SOC (Security Operations Center), a security monitoring service which, through technologies and services, enables its clients to identify threats in time so that they can implement adequate containment and/or incident treatment measures.
  • On-site or remote: When you use a Managed Services provider, you can have a specialist resource on-site or in a remote service model. That resource has the skills to respond assertively to customer needs, providing access to up-to-date skills at a lower price than hiring a specific resource to benefit from those skills.
Jorge Paiva, Comercial Director da Eurotux

Jorge Paiva, Commercial Director at Eurotux, says “Managed Services are an economical and effective way for companies to provide their businesses with the necessary arguments to better respond to technical challenges in their infrastructures”.

Eurotux’s Managed Services teams have multidisciplinary teams, with advanced skills in various technologies and environments (Microsoft, Linux, IBM; on-prem or cloud) which can be available 24 hours a day to respond to incidents, being possible to deploy technical resources worldwide in case of need.
