Cloud Solution Boosts Performance and Reliability

The Client

Our client is a privately held corporation that produces innovative packaging materials used by consumers and businesses throughout the world. The company markets multiple brands, providing a unique solution for products of every size and weight. They have 1,300 employees and operate from numerous North American locations.

The Challenge

When the new CIO came on board in late 2014, he had to move quickly. The IT infrastructure of the growing company was antiquated. Servers were operating from 22 remote sites, while other operating systems were managed in their service provider’s data center. Reliability was weak, backup was lacking, expenses were high and the firm was disappointed with their provider’s service.

The CIO contacted Ensono for help. He knew our capabilities because he had previously served as CIO for another of our clients. He was confident that our insight, technology and industry-leading service could help him turn the page for his new company.

The Solution

Ensono and the client finalized contract terms within 45 days from first contact. Our engineers then developed an IT solution that leveraged as much current technology as possible, but provided more flexibility. We recommended they migrate from dedicated servers to a cloud-based solution using Ensono Cloud, Ensono’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environment.

We used our storage and backup services to fill service gaps that had previously existed. Most important, we leveraged our ITSM disciplines to wrap processes of Change Management and Incident Management around everything we do in the environment.

The Benefits

By partnering with Ensono, our client:

  • Increased reliability.
  • Created consistent backup schedules.
  • Incorporated the ability to increase and decrease compute power as needed.
