Versatile Bathrooms & Interiors
With all of their business services running through a 3-year-old server, having such a large workload running through one machine posed considerable risk to the business. In the event of this on site server coming off-line, a back-up solution would not be as reliable as a cloud alternative and it would take considerable time to restore services to get the business back on-line. Furthermore, access to Versatile’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) was limited and compounded by poor broadband connectivity.
INNOVATE designed and implemented a suite of solutions that both overcame their current IT limitations and also realised previous technology investments, specifically:
Realised original server investment and improved Backup solution including reduced RPO.
Reduced the pressure on the 3 year old server by removing Exchange function to Office 365 cloud. The risk of hosting email on premise was removed by setting up Office 365 email in the cloud.
Upgraded to 25MB fibre broadband line with 24/7 monitoring.
Provided Enterprise grade security from cyber attack with Cisco Meraki Firewall, an upgraded firewall to maximise the new upgraded speed and this was provided as INNOVATE’s secure connect solution.
Following a consultation and subsequent implementation with INNOVATE, Versatile now have a more resilient platform that is scalable as their business grows.
