Sometimes finding the right IT infrastructure to fit a business can be a long, drawn-out, and grueling process. With so many hyperconverged solutions now available on the market, it can be difficult to identify the real differentiators of each option being considered. In some cases it can be years before a decision is reached. But, sometimes, like in the case of Belgium’s largest independent law firm, Eubelius, the answer is obvious immediately.
“We took one look at SimpliVity and we knew it was the way to go,” said Eubelius’ IT Manager, Steven Bauwelinckx.
It was sort of a “The IT infrastructure chooses the IT manager” kind of situation.
The law firm originally became interested in SimpliVity to support its VDI implementation, but soon found that hyperconverged infrastructure offered so much more. SimpliVity’s built-in data protection, for example, was a major and unexpected benefit that has ended up saving Eubelius hours of application downtime, especially since the organization was backing up to tape in its prior IT environment. With SimpliVity, the firm was able to cut backup and recovery times from hours down to seconds.
“When we had a problem with our 700GB SQL server, we were able to fully recover it in just a couple seconds,” said Bauwelinckx.
In addition to having the added benefits of the built-in data protection, as well as the rapid VM cloning and recovery capabilities, SimpliVity was able to meet and exceed the law firm’s original VDI requirements and expectations. SimpliVity delivers high performance, scalability, and availability for VDI and business-critical applications at an affordable price point without compromising any of the advantages of a VDI environment.
“SimpliVity’s all-in-one platform was the perfect fit for our VDI project. After seeing the SimpliVity product, we didn’t even consider any of the traditional solutions,” said Bauwelinckx.
While finding the perfect IT infrastructure candidate can sometimes be an extraneous process, sometimes the best choice presents itself right away.
