BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of a digital media company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with International Integrated Solutions, Ltd.?

We were looking to see how we could handle our onsite data center before moving it to the next generation. Most of it was already moved off to a public cloud, but some of our needs required a hybrid cloud environment.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their team brought in several HP technologies. They came in with tools that would be able to identify what our use profile was like. They’ve also looked at introducing a single layer called Ormuco that would give us a much better handle on resource utilization and scaling.

What is the team composition?

There were three people I worked with directly.

How did you come to work with International Integrated Solutions, Ltd.?

They seemed to have a good understanding of how to work with companies on our side. Along with having the right skill set, the team at International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. could work with the speed of our process. We have fast retrieval speeds with larger files being pushed back and forth.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. started in June 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

It’s still a work in progress. Once it’s completed, the data center will hopefully not be on site. We may have a small presence purely for network connectivity and caching, but most of it will be off of the premises at a private cloud near our offices.

This will give our team more flexibility in terms of moving staff and offices. More of our team can work remotely as a result.

How did International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication has been steady. One of their client partners works with us and mediates conversations between our side and HP.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team at International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. understands storage needs. Most other storage companies are tuned into random access and high transaction loads, but not what it takes to pull large files on a steady basis with a sustained output.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing I’d have them improve.
