Case study: An upgrade

Case study: An upgrade


This performance venue was struggling with their web presence IT set up. Their internet connections were too slow and unreliable, their Virtual Private Network kept going down and their offsite servers weren't working efficiently. On analysis, we discovered that the server was being hosted in a place that was excessively costly, and that the server itself was very old. Getting access to it was also difficult and time consuming for in-house staff.


To solve these problems we installed a reliable high capacity internet connection at the venue, along with firewalls both onsite and offsite at the datacenter. This achieved our main aim, to accelerate the internet connection and boost it's reliability. We then configured and tested a new Virtual Private Network. Changing over a server can seem risky to big businesses, but we took care of it all with minimum interruption. To make the server storage more economical, we also helped the venue find a nearer and more cost effective datacenter.
