With excessive servers and aging equipment, SRG Architects’ server room had an overheating problem. The firm was also experiencing frequent backup issues and did not have a disaster recovery plan in place to protect them in case of emergency.
SRG wanted to make the transition to a virtual environment and greener IT services. They had virtual infrastructure only partially implemented and needed an IT team to get the project on track.
The Convergence team designed and implemented the following IT solutions for SRG:
- Full backups and replication.
- A virtualized environment for both energy and cost savings, along with removal of inefficient and unnecessary equipment.
- A disaster recovery plan to ensure that SRG’s network is available in the event of hardware or site failure.
Convergence was able to reduce SRG’s physical servers and desktops used for remote access by over 80%. With reduced equipment and the addition of virtualized servers, SRG has no problem keeping their server room cool. Thanks to Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure, SRG can now deploy a workstation in 1/5 the time it used to take. They also enjoy ongoing cost savings due to decreased power usage.
SRG has increased system up-time and better system-wide performance than ever before. They can focus on their business, knowing that their IT services are efficient, reliable, and green, saving them time and money.
