AssurIT complete Network refresh project for New Customer

AssurIT have completed a 2 month network refresh project for Fletchers Bakeries. Fletchers are a major force in the UK Bakeries Market, supplying the highest quality product to all major Supermarket chains. Fletchers are a 90 million turnover business with production facilities spread across the UK. Performing a Network refresh project on vital communications equipment while preserving the production hours was a challenge, that AssurIT was equal to.

Mr Paul Mosley, Fletchers Group IT Manager writes "AssurIT demonstrated flexibility and excellent cost effectiveness during the quotation stage. This was complimented by the skilled and efficient technical team that performed the work. Fletchers Group are comfortable that the Network infrastructure is up to scratch and will see us through the foreseeable future."

Fabris Lane to be Virtualised

AssurIT have been working with Fabris Lane, the UK's largest eyewear Company, over the last few month to provide guidance on how to reduce operational costs associated with their IT Infrastructure. The brief was all encompassing and covered everything from Enduser Desktops, Server Estates, LAN access and their existing tape backup processes.

Fabris Lane's overall goal was cost reduction however they also needed to address their passion for carbon offsetting with a lower footprint through energy efficiencies.

AssurIT will achieve both these goals with virtualisation of their Desktops and Server Estates using IBM hardware and AssurIT's expertise, following an order placed in July. This reflects a substantial commitment from Fabris Lane to refresh the whole of their IT infrastructure and strengthened their internal systems with new technology.

AssurIT secures Monitoring contract for Vibrant Media’s SQL Environment

AssurIT are delighted to announce the signing of a multi year managed services contract with Vibrant Media, the online video advertising network and leading provider of contextual video advertising.

The managed service contract encompasses the monitoring of alerts on Vibrant Media's core SQL Server databases during out of hours operations. AssurIT's technical operators will then take steps to resolve the issue or escalate to nominated Vibrant Media employees.

It is key that during out of hours operations, the java based monitoring console devised in-house by Vibrant Media is monitored. Database outages are not acceptable to the business and can quickly become expensive should they not be noticed for a period of time. AssurIT's solution means that between the hours of 18:00 and 08:30 the environment is monitored and responded to accordingly when alerts are issued.

Steve Ellis, Managing Director at AssurIT commented 'This represents a significant win for AssurIT and we are grateful to be trusted with this business critical monitoring contract. It demonstrates AssurIT's flexibility to branch into technical areas away from our core business of System I and Intel server management. AssurIT are now well positioned to monitor databases on behalf of companies who require 24x7 coverage.'
