Case Study: Guelph Hydro

One Canadian electric company can measure its hyperconvergence success with a particularly notable metric: user happiness. Guelph Hydro’s systems analyst, Adam Borecki, says that the IT team used to field lots of calls from users complaining about their virtual desktops—60-70 in total. Users were often disconnected, or their systems were running slowly. IT was working on incremental improvements every three to six months, but they weren’t always obvious. “It’s a night and day difference” since implementing SimpliVity, Borecki said. “We’ve heard nothing negative about any of the virtual desktops we’ve deployed.”
