Business Focused IT Support

SBS Server Migration, and Much More…

by MPRAdmin in IT Systems, MPR IT Work

MPR IT have recently taken on Tubz Brands into our IT support portfolio here in Kent. In doing so, we where asked to design and implement a new infrastructure for their growing business with an SBS Server Migration to a full server platform with Hyper V.

They where finding their old systems to be slow and unresponsive, causing them to become unproductive on basic day to day tasks.

With applications such as Exchange, Act For Sage, Sage Accounts and many custom applications a single server solution did not meet their requirements.

MPR IT spent some time designing a completely new infrastructure from the ground up, with new cabling, switching, servers and end user computers the difference is night and day.

MPR IT implemented a Hyper-V Virtualised environment with Microsoft Server 2012, Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Microsoft Exchange 2013, ACT 2013 Premium, Sage 2013 and Office 2013.

HP DL380 G8 High Performance Servers provide the power to run all of Tubz applications and allow for growth for both users and data. Backup are taken care of by iSCSI SAN arrays and replicated off site.

We also had to improve their internet connection, on the Eurolink estate in Kent, BT internet speeds are poor at best, MPR IT are however able to provide Tubz with a 10mb/10mb connection leased line connection for sub £100 a month.

The core network has been raised from 100mb using basic switches and hubs! To a full 1Gbps network with Cisco Layer 2 switches and HP managed Pro Curve hardware.

We also introduced full network management and user control with our Web and Email filtering services.

All of this is topped off with our premier Support package, giving Tubz the piece of mind they can concentrate on building their business over the next 3 to 5 years!
