upgraded infrastructure

Pros
Our servers and infrastructure were almost ten years old, so we really needed an upgrade. We also wanted to bring resilience and high availability to our systems, and we wanted to design the system for better disaster recovery and backup. The key business systems are the Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft 2008 Server Enterprise, with Exchange Server powering the company’s e-mail communications. There was also a need to create a more cost-effective environment, with its servers operating in a mix of on-premise servers and hosted servers. In consultation with Professional Advantage, it was decided to bring all of the server infrastructure in-house. This will allow the new virtualised solution to meet our needs.We have now replaced our server infrastructure with a new virtualised environment that allows three servers to handle the entire business. With the opportunity to redesign our systems, we also put in place a high-performance SAN (Storage Area Network) to support the backend.
Cons
I have no complaints.
Additional Comments
We are looking for the system to pay for itself in two years, with the investment expected to our needs for five years. Savings can be identified throughout the new environment. The reduction in the number of physical servers not only simplifies systems administration – which relieves the load on our IT staff – it also reduces the power consumption in the server room, which in turn reduces the amount of backup power needed. But it’s flexibility that excites us. If you need more space, or if you need more servers, you just add another host or upgrade the SAN. And that’s without counting the productivity benefits we expects to deliver. The new system means no downtime – and that means more productivity, which means more revenue.
