Virtualisation platform improves the reliability of critical infrastructureDownload the case study
Tackling youth unemployment and agility all in one
The City of Oulu’s provider of IT services, Oulun Tietotekniikka (OTT), was looking for a reliable partner to provide virtualisation services. OTT required assistance as five municipalities had merged into the greater municipality of Oulu, meaning that service provider needed to ensure that IT services were available to a continually growing number of users.
As part of the City of Oulu’s development strategy, an innovative procurement method had been put in place which meant partners had to assist with meeting targets in other key areas, in this instance youth employment.

Virtual desktops deleted after each session
Multiple features to streamline user operations
OTT wanted to find a skilled, agile virtualisation partner who could meet the youth employment criteria of its framework agreement. The partner needed to develop new solutions that improved the reliability of servers while also developing virtual workstations.
Proact designed and implemented a server and desktop virtualisation solution. OTT also opted for Proact’s comprehensive Service Management to ensure systems are available and protected round-the-clock. This bespoke platform increased reliability and vastly improved accessibility to IT services, while also maintaining high security standards.
Proact’s strong local presence and know-how has been essential in ensuring the availability of our services.
