Our server and SAN equipment, which is the heart of our business operations, was old, out of warranty and needed to be replaced. Our IT is an important part of our business and in keeping us running efficiently so we engaged Powernet to help us upgrade our systems‘ says Wheare.

‘Powernet provided us with technical guidance and advice which led us to take on this huge project with Powernet leading the charge. We replaced all of our core server and SAN infrastructure’.

Powernet manages our our day to day IT support requests, my experience with Powernet is that there is always someone around to help, no matter who we speak with, they always know our systems well. This project was no exception, the project was managed and delivered fast and to a high standard‘ says Wheare.

The Results

‘Powernet was very engaging, there were no hiccups, and considering the size of the project that is impressive. The project was delivered under budget and sooner than anticipated and we are now setup for the next 5 years. We look forward to working on the next large migration project with Powernet, which will most likely see us move into the cloud’ says Wheare.
