Who, What, and Why

Ruggiero AV Services was created in 2002 as a home-based business, where computers were repaired for family and friends, and family video was produced and edited.  We also performed more elaborate audio and video conversions, such as photos to videotape and legacy video to DVD.

Between 2003 and 2009, we established ourselves as a web hosting company, and have offered our hosting and e-mail services to clients since that time.

We are a big proponent of "cloud-based" services, however one tends to define it.  From 2009 to late 2016, we looked for ways to diversify our services by offering DIY virtual servers and turnkey hosting.  The consolidation of resources from large physical servers to blade and micro servers, as well as physical servers to virtual machines represent savings in energy, administration time, and cost, which we can pass on to our clients.  

Though we had prospered and grown, the late-2020 arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic eventually affected our customer base and our bottom line.  However, we continue to offer our original service of AV conversion, and remote computer support, and still host a number of websites which we either maintain for the customers or give them full access.  We thank all of you who have patronized us since our inception, and especially thank the people who have stayed loyal customers up to now.
