Providing Fully Managed Business Platforms in the Cloud

GUEST BLOG BY ABT ONLINE GENERAL MANAGER OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, TRISTAN PASCOE

Our IT architecture had grown quite haphazardly over the years and we found ourselves hosting client environments with a truly diverse mix of hardware — a ‘fruit salad’ of Compaq, Dell, HP and IBM products. Working with so many different platforms and with so many different vendors made managing and maintaining the system a bit of a nightmare, which was made worse when components began reaching end-of-life at different times.

To combat this, we decided to completely overhaul our infrastructure. What we wanted was a single solution from a single vendor with a single warranty. Looking at competitors’ products, we found that Flex System would give us all the capabilities we needed at a lower price than anyone else — a bit of a no-brainer!

Thanks to a unified Flex System infrastructure in both of our data centers, we — and our clients — are benefitting from high availability, high performance and easy scalability.
