What our clients say

“My PC hit an issue when it slowed down to the speed of a snail. As a web developer, hitting that first thing in the morning with a busy day ahead is the worst start possible. I called Meridian at bang on 09:00 and they were there and ready to help.

Steve walked me through a number of possibilities and found the issue (windows messing up an update). One install and a reboot later and the machine is back up to its usual greyhound speed. Meridian were great. I am delighted to have found such an efficient IT support service locally in Stamford. Highly recommend..”

Pearson Treehouse Web Development, John Scotcher MD

“I have used Meridian for many years and have always found them to be helpful and efficient.  Any queries are dealt with quickly and the team are always on hand to provide assistance”

Steph Swales – RJ Knaggs & Co Solicitor, Redcar

“We were having very serious virus issues: our email address was blacklisted because our anti-virus had expired and our systems were not up to date. Meridian provided us with a new anti-virus solution, this eliminated all viruses throughout our business and our address was no longer blacklisted, allowing our email to function again.”

Scanlans Solicitors, Vicki Robinson

“We have worked with Meridian for a number of years, they are friendly and efficient and go out of their way to resolve problems when they occur. Most importantly, they speak English not Jargon so we don’t need to be technical to talk to them.”

Will and Probate Services, Market Deeping, Nick Ash

“For over 15 years we have had an excellent working relationship with Meridian. For advising on hardware, repairs, updating and maintaining our case management system, keeping our security and backup updated and providing first class software support. As a busy law firm, we rely on Meridian to keep our computers working and therefor our business despite frequent unexpected challenges. They do not keep us waiting for assistance either on line or if needed on site. We have always found everyone at Meridian to be friendly, helpful and skilled even when dealing with non-computer literate clients like us. They have a detailed understanding of the needs of the legal sector and we would highly recommend Meridian for all areas of legal computer supply and support.”

Case Study

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.
