Project Overview.

Robert Whowell had four aging Microsoft 2003 servers in place. With support for the 2003 platform coming to an end, the servers needed to be upgraded.

Accountants store large numbers of financial records, so to follow industry regulations, all networks and servers must be resilient and secure. Robert Whowell had an existing accounting system containing sensitive client data, so they needed the upgraded servers to integrate seamlessly with it.

The Challenge.

In an aim to increase efficiency, we installed two new servers and upgraded the two Windows licences, which enabled us to install virtual servers.

To accompany the virtualised servers, we installed a backup and replication solution.

In an effort to modernise their IT infrastructure we provided them 11 new desktop computers, three notebook computers and three tablets.

The Solution.

We installed and connected all the new end user equipment to the business network with as little downtime as possible.

We improved capacity and performance by installing the two new servers. This also lowered their technology infrastructure’s overall energy consumption.

We consolidated their infrastructure by updating the Windows licence with built in Hyper-V. The secure and reliable backup solution protected Robert Whowell’s newly virtualised network, providing greater resiliency for the business.

Robert Whowell now has an up-to-date IT infrastructure which is more than capable of meeting the financial industry’s IT regulations.

Instead of replacing the old hardware, we virtualised two servers, consolidating their IT infrastructure and making IT management easier. The new IT hardware allows Robert Whowell to complete daily operations with more efficiency.

“We’re very pleased with our new network. It’s faster and more resilient than our previous setup and far more intuitive and secure. The thing that impressed me most was the way they listened to our requirements and carefully planned everything so we had limited downtime.”
