IT Infrastructure Refresh

Like any aspect of a business, IT needs to be kept up to date. That doesn’t just mean letting your applications run automatic updates every few weeks – your hardware will only last so long as well. Both as a matter of wear and tear and in consideration of the growth of the organization, your IT can’t stay the same forever. That’s why an IT infrastructure refresh is so important to consider.

IT Infrastructure Refresh Services In Calgary

Have you found that your IT isn’t keeping up with your business? Maybe you’ve grown in size the past few years, adding new locations and working with many more clients. Maybe you’ve pivoted your offering, changing the type of service or product you deliver to clients. In either case, don’t you think your IT should keep up with the changes made to your business?

Regardless of how much you spend on it, and how cutting-edge it is at the time of installation, the fact is that time is running out for your IT infrastructure. It is literally only a matter of time before it’s outdated due to advancements in the IT world, or simply unable to support your business as it grows and evolves.

Case in point – Viewlevel Equities Corp.

Viewlevel Equities Corp. is an office services business providing facilities management for a number of CPC accounting firms and private enterprises. In managing professional settings for businesses like these, Viewlevel Equities Corp. requires a robust IT infrastructure that can meet the needs of different workplace environments.

As their business grew and their clients’ needs changed over the years, so did Viewlevel Equities Corp.’s IT needs. They had to keep up with how their clients used IT, which meant having to make sure their own IT was up to the task.

Finding IT Services In Calgary

Fortunately for Viewlevel Equities Corp., they didn’t have to go looking for an unknown third-party to handle their IT infrastructure refresh. They were already working with Vital Business Services and has been since 2001.

“Our relationship with Vital evolved over the years as our needs became more complex,” says Eve McGuire, Viewlevel Equities Corp.

18 Years Of IT Support In Calgary

Over their many years of service to Viewlevel Equities Corp., Vital Business Systems has kept their technology up to date and prepared to handle their changing needs as a business. While this continual updating process has taken many forms over nearly two decades, their most recent IT infrastructure refresh involved a few specific projects, ranging from the virtualization of hardware to the migration to more reliable and proven email clients.

As a part of the IT infrastructure refresh, Vital Business Systems addressed the following technical priorities for Viewlevel Equities Corp.:

  • Updated Hardware With Virtual Machines: For their IT infrastructure refresh, Vital Business Systems overhauled Viewlevel Equities Corp.’s servers and other hardware. Specifically, they replaced four physical servers with one physical Hyper-V host, and four virtual servers (two Server 2016 and two Windows 10).
  • Improved Security Capabilities: Vital Business Systems transitioned Viewlevel Equities Corp. to Sophos for Anti-Virus and their Firewall.
  • Migration To Office 365: Vital Business Systems helped Viewlevel Equities Corp. transition from Exchange 2010 to a superior Microsoft Office 365 configuration for their work email.

Top 3 Benefits Of IT Services In Calgary

Whereas Viewlevel Equities Corp. has gained a number of advantages thanks to reliable IT support over the past 18 years, when it came to their recent IT infrastructure refresh, there are three in particular worth noting:

  1. Reliable Security
    Security is often the quickest aspect of IT to go out of fashion. The fact is that cybercriminals are constantly adapting to new security measures in order to find ways of circumventing them. By having Vital Business Systems update their security with proven Sophos solutions, Viewlevel Equities Corp. can be more confident in their ability to keep employee and client data secure.
  2. Up To Date Infrastructure
    Given that they house a number of accounting firms and other private enterprises, it’s vital for Viewlevel Equities Corp. to provide a robust IT environment for their clients to use for work. Updating their IT infrastructure with virtual machines and current hardware is a foundational part of their ability to deliver for their clients.
  3. Ongoing Support
    This IT infrastructure refresh is just the latest in a long list of services that Vital Business Systems has delivered to Viewlevel Equities Corp. over the past 18 years. Both before the refresh, and since, Viewlevel Equities Corp. has enjoyed responsive and effective IT support to maintain their IT environment.
