As with the most companies, the more computers you have the harder it is to manage and maintain.
Belfast Bus Company had 30+ devices that were falling behind with security updates, once our RMM agent was installed we were able to keep all of the software up to date, ensure security patches were applied as soon as they were released and all anti-virus updates were installed leaving all members of staff free to carry out their work.
Belfast Bus Company have been running for the past 20 years, naturally, as the business grew so did their IT needs. With the old networking foundation in place, every new expansion or addition placed alongside the old hardware caused more instability and reduced speed resulting in regular drop outs caused by old or damaged hardware.
In order to reduce company costs and minimise company disruption we removed all existing network devices and cabling and made a fresh start with the networking infrastructure, laying all new network cables, supplying and configuring managed network switches, patch panels and installing patch panels at each endpoint.
As part of the refurbishment of their networking infrastructure we supplied Belfast Bus Company with a new blade server with a virtualisation cluster, we decommissioned a server and upgraded an existing server. With the new server in place we were able to optimise performance for use with their internal software, while we were at it, we introduced GPO’s, Active Directories and a print server to maximise security and workflow. We also added an imaging service to create exact clones or increase installation time for new or existing workstations.
Although the servers in Belfast Bus Company have a RAID configuration to enable data recovery in the event of a disk failure we also setup a backup solution for the virtualisation cluster, should the server fail due to a hardware fault we will be able to setup and re-configure a replacement server without starting from fresh
