Chandler Macleod Group is one of the region’s largest human resources solutions. With over 50 years of experience, over 60 branches and 1400+ full time employees they are a significant force in the HR landscape. ITConsult works with CMG on an ongoing basis to deliver best-in-class solutions including a full infrastructure refresh project delivering virtualised servers, storage and desktops to the organisation. The use of KACE systems management also provides significant benefits to CMG.
By investigating and understanding CMGs challenges around capacity, compatibility, performance and the need for recovery ITConsult implemented a solution to address all CMGs needs. Through the use of Dell and VMware all servers are now compatible with the same storage and have now moved forward from out-dated SCSI technology to provide an increase in performance through the new protocol and processing power as well as addressing the issue of maintenance and upgrade difficulties. Plus with NetApp, production SAN capacity planning and future growth needs were addressed and the unified nature of NetApp means it has the space for today and the ability to scale for the future in whatever direction that may be.
