Managed OS from DARZ
Provision, operation and management of operating systems places high demands on the resources of IT departments. A large number of employees is concerned with tasks that are necessary, but do not bring the company forward with regard to growth and innovation. This can be changed using a service to manage operating systems by DARZ. This can easily be combined with other services such as license management and Monitoring-as-a-Service.

Overview Managed OS
We perform the operation and monitoring of Windows or Linux operating systems. However, applications are excluded. Applications can be monitored through DARZ’s Monitoring-as-a-Service and appropriate contact persons can be informed.
Our experts execute usual administrative tasks, including current patches, server updates, new antivirus tools, and regulatory requirements. DARZ monitors the operating system 24x7. Within the framework of operating system management, DARZ installs Windows updates once a month in coordination with the customer and maintains the antivirus application. In the event of a problem, we fix the situation (bluescreen, level of the disk volume, etc.). After restoring the proper function of the operating system, you will be informed immediately so that you can administer any necessary applications.
