Shattered Silicon Linux Consultancy Services
Shattered Silicon enables organisations to augment their Linux administration and maintenance capabilities. We can do this by leveraging the skills and experience our highly qualified Linux consultants. We are completely vendor-independent.

We have no vested interest in the choice of platform or technology – our only interest is providing our clients with the best, most appropriate solution possible for the problem they are solving.
Our expert Linux consultants are available 24/7 to help you increase performance, flexibility and business continuity of your critical Linux systems. We provide on-site Linux consulting in Europe and remote DBA consulting world-wide. Our Linux experts have consulted for some of the largest companies in a range of industry verticals. These include mobile and online advertising, commerce, fintech, banking, insurance, mobile and online gaming, social media and SaaS.
Our dedicated team of Linux consultants are always standing by to help you with your requirements and ongoing support, to help find the best solution for you.
Are Our Expert Consulting Services For You?
Our services are primarily aimed at companies with Linux server infrastructures that are either:
- Too small to warrant employing a full time systems administrator or
- Too large and complex for the existing full time systems administrators to effectively look after
- Need temporary augmentation to their skills for deploying new infrastructure for a project
There are a number of tell-tale signs you may be experiencing. A common manifestation is an explosion in workload of your “accidental sysadmin” who no longer has enough capacity to effectively carry out their primary duties, typically software development. Other common symptoms include deteriorating system performance or increased lack of confidence in disaster recovery capabilities. Or perhaps there are vulnerabilities from web applications that need to be reviewed and addressed.
If the state of your Linux server/s is causing you concern, we can almost certainly help. Contact us today! (we will respond to e mail as soon as possible). We can also visit on-site in many locations and where required or more appropriate offer remote support.
As well as designing and implementing new systems, we also help our clients to maximise the value of their existing infrastructure. We also have extensive experience working with multi-server web platforms and back-office systems.
What is a Linux Server?
A Linux server is a version of the Linux operating system developed for larger organizations and their software that has greater storage and operation requirements. Linux servers are widely used today and considered amongst the most popular due to their stability, security, and flexibility, which outstrip standard Windows servers.
In addition to being open-source, Linux operating systems have another major advantage over closed-source software, such as operating systems like Windows. This helps keeps setup and maintenance costs low, as even many of the proprietary variants of the standard Linux OS (such as Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Red Hat) give users significant flexibility in terms of set up, operation, and maintenance on their servers.
Furthermore, Linux servers are generally lighter to run on both physical and cloud servers since they do not require graphics interfaces.
Linux is a lightweight solution that prioritizes functionality and performance over ease of use, since most Linux variants are fully command-line based.
Linux servers also offer almost 100% uptime, since most do not need to be taken down for updates or errors to be fixed. As well as being able to handle multiple tasks at once, Linux is also excellent at multitasking.
We also offer MySQL Consulting Services.

“The work carried out was excellent. Ten times better than Percona.”
“Gordan from Shattered Silicon consulted into Transactis at a time they were in need of an expert consultant to extensively optimise their MySQL database during a key software product launch. Feedback from the client was excellent at all times and indeed he was able to provide services above and beyond their expectations. Personally Gordan was a pleasure to work and I would gladly work with him again.”
“Shattered Silicon are an absolute pleasure to work with. Their technical skills are amazing and I would rate their abilities on par with the very best in the world. It’s obvious their team goes out of their way to learn, test and benchmark the latest features and functionality. They are able to communicate complex technical issues clearly to both technical and business people. They deliver what they promise and have never missed a deadline.”
“The Consultant from Shattered Silicon is an extremely knowledgeable and capable System Administrator who was key to supporting legacy systems as well as implementing new ones. They were flexible and displayed a great attitude, and I would happily work with them again.“
I can’t recommend Shattered Silicon highly enough! They were quick to respond and understand what we needed, knew immediately what action we needed to take and helped us apply their suggestions. They are quick to offer very detailed advice, and have been a real pleasure to work with (and will continue to work with in the future). In terms of value for money the benefit we’ve gained in just a few hours of their time has been fantastic!
