One of our clients is a large legal company of over 100 employees who were moving offices from a sprawling rabbit warren type setup to a large open space office environment with 4 floors. They had a few physical servers and a very simplistic infrastructure. We were able to plan, propose and implement a new scalable infrastructure solution based on VMware and were ready with this solution when they moved in to their new office.
The new infrastructure consisted of two storage devices plus two VMServer hosts connected together by ISCSCI for fast data access. The solution was built at our office in Stamford and then moved to server racks in their server room in the basement of their new office block. We were able to augment one of their physical servers and use this as a backup server. Firewalls, wireless controller and email archiving appliances were installed to provide a resilient, scalable and secure IT environment. A cloud-based enterprise anti-virus solution was installed with award winning anti ransomware abilities.
Having a VMWare environment meant we could backup the servers in their entirety along with all their content so if disaster would strike they would soon be back up and running. Also as they identified new services that they required as a business we were able to install extra virtual servers to facilitate them. As they grew we recognised the need for improved disaster recovery and cloud backup and recommended a new hosted solution which gave them on site backup as well as in the cloud. This solution would also serve as a disaster recovery tool that could spin up and host the servers temporarily in the event of the VMware environment being made unavailable.
As a network solutions company we continue to support this infrastructure with daily checks and recommendations for the future.
