Online Cycling Retailer
An online Cycling retailer were looking to purchase additional VMWare Licences in order to expand their cluster onto the server estate of a recently acquired competitor.
They initially had licence costs of over £60k to cover the expansion program as the servers they ran were a mixture of Gen 8 and Gen 9 HPE server. By utilising their existing licences, we consolidated the older devices, replacing the entire estate with new Gen 10 devices. Not only did this dramatically reduce the cost of the VMWare licensing, but the new servers also included 5-Years of support, negating the need to invest in additional support for their existing estate.
This then allowed them the available funds to replace their storage estate, which was already unsupported, a cost previously beyond budget.
