Wellness Product Company Switches From Linux to Windows Server to Support Growth
Source: Microsoft Tips
Zone Labs, known for its Evidence Based Wellness products, had an unsupported IT mix of Linux, Apache, Tomcat, JBoss, and Java 2 Enterprise Edition, with financial data in QuickBooks. With no automated inventory control, no disaster recovery mechanism, and only limited security capabilities, the environment was unable to support significant business growth. To prepare for continued growth, the company switched to Microsoft software, including Windows Server 2003, Exchange Server 2003, SQL Server 2005, and Microsoft Dynamics GP. Today, Zone Labs has an integrated IT environment that helps improve business processes and employee productivity. The move to the Windows-based environment has helped make the company's IT systems more manageable, reliable, and secure, and has improved its ability to find the necessary skilled resources, applications, and vendor support.
