A Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, it also has competencies in information worker and network infrastructure solutions. Continued growth at the company resulted in a number of business challenges. Expenditure on hardware was increasing because the company had to buy more servers. In addition, managing and powering the server estate became more expensive and time consuming and the data-centre was running out of space. ALAN wanted to extend the use of virtual servers to reverse the trend.
