Gravitywell

Gravitywell is a digital agency that creates Bespoke websites and develops apps for many high profile businesses. Currently, they have 12 staff and are growing.

Initial brief from the client

Gravitywell approached us in April 2014 as they were moving to a new premises and needed some new infrastructure to support their rapidly growing team of developers.

The main requirement was to manage the technical side of the move so that on the Monday moving in date everything would be in place and functioning, just requiring the workstations to be plugged in

Requirements included a new phone system and they wanted a reliable server setup to replace their aging Linux server.

We supplied and installed a phone system and high availability server cluster giving 6TB of highly redundant data storage.

All desks were wired for ethernet (preferred choice of the MD) for phones and the workstations.

We also installed and configured the Sharedband aggregated broadband system.

The benefits to the client

Minimised downtime: The move went very smoothly on the Friday all workstations were unplugged and the mover picked them up over the weekend, all reconnected and working on Monday morning

The MD could concentrate on the business growth and other aspects of the move in the 2-month run-up to the move

A fast new server installed at a reasonable cost with high availability to minimise downtime and maximise staff productivity.

 

“We’re very happy with the new server, Mike did an excellent job of setting it all up.”
