Hooks Systems, who provides Computer Support services for Comfort Keepers of NMB, worked with the company’s staff to design a “virtualized” terminal server which now provides access to the company’s email and business software for all of the staff who work outside of the office.  Virtualization allows multiple single-purpose servers to be combined onto a single “server box”.

This approach has greatly reduced the hardware and electricity expenses to Comfort Keepers and given them additional Return On Investment (ROI) by utilizing their existing server as a “host” machine for both of their servers.
