just wanted to write you a note to let you know that I have now successfully completed my move and new IT installation. It was the most stress free IT move I have ever done, and I am a bit of a multiple-mover (no more now, I vow)
IT, BT and ITO were all really helpful and things went without a hitch.
My special thanks to Damian in IT, Angie and ITO and Tony at Red Vista who made it all possible for all of their hard work. Please could you pass this on?
Medico – Legal Adviser, The MDU
Just to let you know that the customer signed off the production systems yesterday and are in the process of doing so for development. So far, we have not been made aware of any issues whatsoever arising from the datacentre move! Good work for a 1000+ server move. Anyway, I’d like to thank you and your team, especially those who had to spend the New Year holiday away from home – without your hard work and professionalism we definitely would not have achieved the objective within the required timescales.
Everyone has enjoyed working with you guys and we look forward to being able to do so again in the future.
Transition Manager – HP GDIS EMEA Transition & Transformation Practise (Datacentre Relocation)
I would like to extend my gratitude to the Red Vista services team (including your-self of course) aligned to London Scottish. Since switching to Red Vista, the flexibility and professionalism of the team has assisted LS in significantly improving the overall efficiency of our critical Solaris environment, ensuring the SLA’s demanded by the business are met if not exceeded! The added value of Red Vista’s quick and competitively priced supply of upgrades and additional systems in to the estate have also played a part in reducing our on-going costs and increasing efficiencies Red Vista is to be recommended to any organisation seeking (as they say on the tin) a no nonsense Service Partner, with a more flexible approach to service delivery.
Unix Manager – London Scottish Bank PLC (Infrastructure Support)
We trialled Red Vista’s on-site 24×7 support services across our critical 1200+ UNIX server environment for an initial 1 year period during 2006/2007. Within that time, the flexibility and proactive nature of the Red Vista team has assisted our business in significantly improving the overall efficiency of the UNIX environment, ensuring the SLA’s demanded by the business are met and in many instances exceeded! On renewal we were happy to negotiate a new 3 year contract, also encompassing our 1000+ Wintel server environment and further value added services from Red Vista. Plus we have benefited by our annual support cost reducing by a significant 6 figure sum.
We have every confidence in recommending Red Vista to any organization wishing to receive a more flexible approach to service delivery and a proactive attitude to increasing efficiency.
Deputy Director Global Infrastructure – Major Global Financial (Infrastructure Support)
Yes everything was signed off on time and a lot of the credit can go to the help and commitment provided by your team. They are very well thought off here at HP.
UK Technical Change Manager – HP Managed Services EMEA (Datacentre Services)
A good weekend – Very smooth data centre move with no hardware failures so full marks to you and your team. Always good to do business together and looking forward to more.
IT Services Manager – The Air Miles Travel Company (Datacentre Relocation)
WHY use Red Vista? In a nut-shell, Red Vista holds the clients best interests in mind at all times. They deliver a high level of service consistently and are pleasant, professional people to do business with.
Global Procurement Director – Major Global Financial (CO Operative Services)
The decision to implement Red Vista’s Modular Datacentre solution was driven by the necessity to partner with a datacentre design & build specialist, who would work proactively throughout the project’s lifecycle; deliver an end-to-end solution, and ensure that the operational result met with the business’s evolving requirements & expectations. The project has proved 100% successful and the recently received Datacentre Dynamics Award for Innovation that the Modular solution has won is testament to Red Vista’s understanding and capabilities.
ICT Director – London City Airport (Modular Data Centre)
We changed from working with a considerable sized DR manual with numerous associated work flows and processes to just 3 succinct, complimentary documents! All of which we can now use quickly and easily in the unlikely event that disaster strikes. A project that delivered all of its agreed requirements, on time and within budget; what more could an IT Director ask for?
