Stace, a construction and property consultancy company with 170 staff in various locations, had a sprawling IT infrastructure which was failing to meet the demands of an expanding business. Outages and downtime were regular events and expert support was required to help the IT internal team form and deliver a new strategy for IT.
Northdoor completely re-architected the Citrix environment and introduce task-appropriate, virtualised infrastructure using an IBM storage solution and delivered much needed stability. Desktop and server environments were separated and given dedicated resources thereby increasing reliability. A disaster recovery service was designed and implemented and a managed services wrapper complements the in-house team to increase availability and user confidence.
As part of our ‘practice what we preach’ principle Northdoor carried out an assessment to look at the cost and performance of moving our own SaaS solution, Sanction Checker, into the Microsoft Azure cloud. As a result of this move we are able to offer greater performance, reliability, capacity and flexibility to over 30 customers that depend on this service on a day-to-day basis.
