Outcome

Office move prompts refresh

With a move to Birmingham imminent and funding reduced, Nacro engaged a firm of change management consultants to provide advice about what investments were necessary to continue to provide its services. The consultants approached Quadnet for advice on the infrastructure.

Quadnet quickly realised that Nacro’s existing infrastructure was hampering the charity’s service delivery.

In-depth review

A One-to-One briefing and in-depth review of Nacro’s needs was organised at an HP demonstration centre, to bring Nacro up to speed on virtualisation technologies.

As a result of the review, Quadnet proposed a VMware virtualisation solution based on HP blades and an HP storage area network. It also proposed replicating the infrastructure at a second site so that, in the event of failure, services could be resumed in one hour.

Nacro has a more flexible, manageable and reliable infrastructure

In the event of an incident services can now be resumed in an hour, rather than days before

Quadnet was able to use its relationships with HP and VMware to negotiate preferential price

System administration has been reduced as a result of virtualisation

Preferential pricing

Quadnet worked with HP and VMware to negotiate a preferential price for the supply of the equipment and software. It also presented the proposal to the board, gaining approval for it to go ahead. When the supply of the solution was put out to tender, Quadnet was selected and subsequently implemented it.
