EOS server: easy and secure collaboration
8th August 2019

Multi-award winning Chord Electronics first took flight from the aviation world, where engineering without limits means uncompromising standards. This concept designed by company owner John Franks has helped shaped our philosophy since the company’s inception in 1989. Our first amplifiers were supplied to the BBC, followed by world-leading studios including Abbey Road, Sony Music (New York) and later, The Royal Opera House.

Our reputation within the professional world generated demand for a domestic range encompassing the design, engineering and build standards demanded of the finest pro equipment. Today, we apply proprietary technologies to all of our British-made products and proudly deliver studio-grade audio performance across the entire Chord range.

Our biggest concern was migrating the emails from the old to new system but Invicta Linux gave us all the guidance required so this process ran smoothly with no disruption to our business. The Unified Threat Management server was also installed by Invicta Linux which allows me to control the perimeter of my network and provide simple and unlimited VPN access. It also provides reporting, which allows me to see exactly where our bandwidth is being chewed up.

We're very happy with the results. Swapping from a Windows infrastructure to Open Source with the addition of a Drobo drive for our data store has allowed us to simplify our network without any loss of features.


Invicta Linux simplifies workplace collaboration

With such an assortment of different kinds of devices, operating systems and applications, Chord Electronics would probably be at a loss if they didn't have the help and expertise of a trusted partner for their IT services and support. "All our IT support is outsourced to Invicta Linux,"
