IT Manager, Life Style Sports

INNOVATE take care of Life Style Sport’s IT infrastructure as their Managed IT Service Provider. We act as their IT department providing 24×7 desk support and project management services as additional resource to support their IT department.

The client’s old infrastructure had begun to show significant signs of strain and performance issues. This resulted in services being temporarily unavailable for users, lost productivity and concern over hardware failure. INNOVATE provided recommendations to improve the IT environment and mitigate the risk of downtime and failure.

Given the client’s line of business applications, a move to the public cloud was not feasible. We migrated all servers from a single datacentre to a co-located datacentre model in our own private cloud platform, standardised the servers using VMWare, upgraded each virtual server and provided the application servers with disaster recovery and business continuity, protecting mission critical operational applications.

Our recommendations and subsequent implementation have ensured that the new platform is reliable, resilient and flexible to ensure it continues to meet the needs of the organisation over the coming years.
