Discover how experienced iT1 specialists helped companies leverage IT services. You’ll get a firsthand look at how we think, work and interact across a range of issues to deliver immediate impact and growing advantage.
An Arizona healthcare organization.
The organization wanted to manage a unified environment for its multiple medical facilities statewide. To accomplish this, professional help was needed in implementing not only a refresh strategy, but also using a particular technology that would minimize disk costs and allow for growth potential.
A partnership of iT1’s expertise and HP’s technology enabled the organization to manage its unified environment. Installation of HP’s C7000 blade chassis resulted in consolidation of server, storage, networking and power management in a single solution—no small feat considering the many locations iT1 implemented a refresh strategy for all existing desktops using VMware’s virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as a solution.
Despite numerous challenges, including engineer teams from both parties, the iT1 project engineers ultimately handed off the solution to the organization’s engineers who were able to continue with the refresh. Another plus for the customer was not having to invest in desktop replacements, a major cost-cutting measure.
Cloud Services Company
A growing cloud services company with a number of data centers located throughout the US.
The company needed to accommodate growth by adding to the existing infrastructure while maintaining consistent results as each group of servers was installed with the assistance of local resources as scattered at the locations.
Initially, iT1 was chosen to set up and cable Dell chassis, in this case Dell R630s. The client had specific requirements—explicit instructions regarding cable management and labeling. Quality and consistency were important factors. Two iT1 engineers understood those instructions, demonstrated that understanding to the client’s satisfaction, and performed several installs of 10 or more servers.
By using a single company and the same trained engineers instead of local resources, the client was assured of a continuing level of quality and consistency with each server installation. Going forward, additional iT1 employees will be trained to continue that quality and consistency the client expects with each install.
