The challenge

The challenge

Working on the concept of best efforts, the IT team in Apeldoorn had to support requests from all over the globe, and as staff weren't available round-the-clock, business continuity was often effected. Therefore Holland Colours wanted to address the dependence placed upon its headquarters. The IT department sought a solution that had one contact point, and which could address the management of all infrastructure components.

The solution

The solution

Proact designed and implemented a hybrid cloud solution based on FlexPod architecture: a complete solution consisting of network, storage, compute and security with products from market leaders Cisco, NetApp and VMware. With this solution, all components are pre-validated and matched, allowing for a fast installation. Based on an Infrastructure as a Service model, this bespoke architecture integrated with a Proact data centre for backup (Disaster Recovery as a Service and Backup as a Service), with support being available from Proact's experts 24/7.

Our strength lies in supporting the business, not in managing the IT environment. We appreciate that Proact has better management knowledge than we could ever have.
