With its ageing “Server plus SAN” infrastructure, Accutest global was struggling to provide reliable and effective IT services to a demanding and growing staff. Some of traditional servers were over 5 to 7 years old and in urgent need of replacement, The SAN, in particular, were causing real operational headaches with backups and replications, for example, routine failure due to a connectivity issues between Mumbai and Ahmedabad office. As a result they had regular IT problems to cope with, not only the potential disasters, but simple day to day issues like managing multiple servers from different OEMs. As well as the work required to continually monitor and reconfigure the SAN in the face of growing demand, the company was also running up against the limitations of its servers and storage. They didn’t need massive amounts of computing power. As confirmed by Head IT – Accutest Global,Mr.Chander Sharma “high resource utilization made it very difficult to maneuver in the event of peak demand or a failure, or even to make changes without experiencing downtime”
The company enlisted reseller and service provider New Era Informatique based out of Mumbai to find suitable options for its datacenter upgrade, including potential new technologies to replace the traditional server and SAN arrays.
