Lanway has completed a project to virtualise the server environment of property investment firm The Mansion Group.
The Cheadle-based property specialist had outgrown its existing IT infrastructure, requiring a growing number of servers but faced with decreasing storage space.
Lanway was appointed to consolidate the firm's servers using the latest VMware and Dell technologies; increasing the equipment's efficiency and saving money in the process, and leaving behind a scalable IT infrastructure to allow for future growth.
Andrew Henderson, managing director of Lanway, said: “We have worked with The Mansion Group for many years, so we were well placed to offer them consultation, design and implementation to improve their server set-up.
“Virtualisation is something our customers are increasingly turning to. Not only can it save money, it also helps to future-proof. The Mansion Group is now perfectly set with an IT system that can handle all further growth.”
Marcus Brenchley, head of IT at The Mansion Group, added: “The project has lowered our operating expenditure, reduced our long-term capital expenditure and improved efficiency – it is an ideal solution in many ways. We have also retained full control of our infrastructure, but it is good to know that there is an extra level of support there if we need it.”
