Case Study: Room to grow

Case Study: Room to grow


This music college were looking for local IT services in Sussex to help them with their storage issues.  The IT room was running out of physical space and their existing servers were running out of space to store data. When we looked at their set up, it also became clear that they didn’t have sufficient processing capability for running new applications. The expanding organisation needed to find room to grow.


To take care of the issues with physical space, we surveyed the main building to find a new location for IT equipment. Once we’d found the space, we mounted a storage rack for their equipment. We then ran cabling and installed switches to connect the new equipment to the existing infrastructure. The next task was to conduct data and application capacity planning. We needed to do this in order to establish the specification for the new servers. This process resulted in the installation of four new servers, reconfiguring the desktops to work with the servers, as well as installing higher capacity internet connections and firewalls to give them sufficient bandwidth. The music college is now able to run new applications and has a much more streamlined IT setup that allows them room to grow.
