Example of what we’ve done for some of our clients

Data Centre Virtualisation

Colt Technology Services has built a VMware View based virtual desktop infrastructure to support up to 20,000 desktops. The Colt cloud-hosted desktop utilizes Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI and VCE Vblock Systems to deliver virtual desktops that are cheaper and faster than physical PCs. In order to reduce overall CAPEX and OPEX costs (rack space, cooling, maintenance, disk repair), while at the same time dramatically improving user experience, Colt moved to a VDI infrastructure with Atlantis ILIO Diskless VDI software using server RAM as primary storage for virtual desktop images. Atlantis Computing has integrated this solution with VCE Vblock Systems which bring together leading edge technologies from VMware, Cisco and EMC into a single, intelligent converged infrastructure system. The Colt diskless VDI deployment is architected with disaster recovery (DR) and high availability (HA) across Colt data centres for total resilience. Users are load balanced across sites in order to minimize the impact of any DR event. Due to the density increase, Colt can deliver a fully resilient system without excessive cost. Project delivered ahead of schedule, within the tight budget constraints and to satisfaction of the Commercial business group.

Unified Communication Migration

To enable mobility and encourage collaboration, Coats PLC moved away from what many employees labelled a “wretched email system” based on old school IBM Lotus Notes. The task required the CIO to make a leading edge decision around whether to implement a on premise Microsoft Exchange migration or do something that many large corporates were worried about and that was to go down the cloud based Microsoft route and implement their MS365 cloud email and unified communication route. Coats PLC were one of the leading corporate global companies to decide to implement MS365 email across 7,000 users on a global scale. This was implemented by a core group of consulting firms and Microsoft partners in order to ensure the migration was staged carefully and keeping the ‘Business-as-Usual’ model running. Coats PLC now have a highly sophisticated integrated unified communications environment with additional features and capabilities built in to Microsoft’s Skype for Business and their Core Cisco network environment. The solution has dramatically reduced costs of calls and video conferencing and now enables Coats to simplify their core MPLS Backbone network further reducing their comms costs.

IT Architect / Project Management

In a leading Programme Management responsibility, we were required to source and deliver skilled and qualified senior level technology architects for high profile global project. This required taking control of the project from a weaker PM group and delivering consistent policy enforcement, risk reduction and OPEX cost savings. We were required to engage with a number of leading cloud-based service providers in order to assess which providers were able to have the agility and flexibility to deliver a globally consistent service to provide web security service to 40,000+ users. We were then requested to source and provide strong evangelist and deployment architects for enterprise mobile deployment. This enabled us to implement a secure Apple and Android access environment to provide easy mobility access for their corporate services. This expanded across the business supply-chain compliance programme, covering WiFi, Networks, Mobile and Security SME for IT Innovations team evolving the BYOD strategy, providing standards, governance policies, provisioning of new platforms and planning pilots for testing and roll-out.
