About Proxar IT Consulting
Proxar IT Consulting was incorporated in 2008 by a number of senior IT Managers, with headquarters located in Sevenoaks, Kent. We mainly provide our services in and around London and the south-east, but we can occasionally provide services outside our normal operational borders.
ProxarLtd employees have worked in IT for many years, providing valued services from several different industries.
Our experience comes from many different environments, from small (less than 30 servers) to large infrastructures (more than 1,500 servers). We are used to working with network equipment from the likes of Cisco, Foundry, F5, and Citrix, which makes us vendor-independent.
The same applies to operating systems: in a data centre environment we can support the most common types of UNIX/Linux platforms.
In March 2009, a response to a demand, it has extended its services to office support in area of west Kent. Our office services cover network installations and maintenance, server support and monitoring.
Proxar IT Consulting is a young company built on the mature experience of people who have delivered IT products, solutions and services across various industries. The founder of Proxar, Paul Preston, is a Cisco and Red Hat-certified senior network and systems engineer.
