To ensure that the business could keep up with this demand, the IT team decided to migrate from an internal physical platform to a cloud-based solution.
“The migration aimed to take advantage of the Cloud’s flexibility, to help us grow and expand as a business. Working with virtualDCS has allowed us to do just that” he continued.
When discussing the changeover, Darren Scully, Systems Engineer for the business said: “It made complete sense for us to move to a cloud provider, as opposed to continuing to manage our infrastructure internally.
By doing this, not only could we access a more scalable platform, but it also meant that we could dramatically reduce our internal system maintenance costs at the same time.
With a physical infrastructure solution, hardware depreciates rapidly and is out of date very quickly so we’d have to replace equipment at least every three years. This meant it was very costly for the business. Our original platform also took a lot of time for the network infrastructure team to manage, so by utilising a cloud solution the team could then focus on other areas.”
