Your Technology Partner
We provide Linux Managed Server support, installation, configuration, troubleshooting, emergency help, remote assistance and maintenance for new and existing server infrastructures.
When working with us we consider ourselves your technology partner and not just another Managed Service vendor. We make this statement as we understand not just the networking and operating system, but also the software and messaging platforms running on the OS. We diagnose problems at the lowest level and look for innovative solutions to resolve those problems to ensure your business operates smoothly and efficiently.
As a mix of software developers, network and database engineers and Linux certified system administrators, we work together as a team to ensure your services remain online, no matter the issues presented to us. When you engage with us, we provide not just an individual engineer, but a collective pool of knowledge from a team who have gained invaluable experience looking after mission-critical infrastructure.

"We stumbled across Buckhill after searching online for someone to support our FreeBSD internal servers as we didn't have the expertise in-house. We have since used Buckhill for various tasks including the migration from internal servers to Amazon Web Services. We found this process to be extremely professional and a smooth process. This has positively impacted the business meaning we have robust systems that outperforms our old servers, this has also translated into additional revenue for the business. The technical expertise within the team at Buckhill is far above any other agency that we have dealt with, this means that we can always rely on Buckhill to provide the very best solution for any issues we have. We now treat Buckhill as part of the in-house Digital Marketing team."

They have considerable Linux knowledge and experience which has enabled them to successfully undertake a number of complicated migrations and platform designs for us. They do what they say they're going to do when they say they’re going to do it and challenges are never problems. These qualities are rare."

We are very happy with the results and have quickly realised the ROI."
