About

Matthews & Goodman is a commercial property advisor with multiple branches across London and the Midlands. The company uses Remote Desktop solutions and dumb terminals to provide a centralised environment for their users and ease of management.

Challenge

The company used to have all their services hosted on premises and managed the hardware themselves in one of their offices, having all branches connecting to that location as well. Due to growth of the business and the risks associated with having their productions systems on premises Vividsky was contacted to migrate the services to a private cloud solution while retaining full control of the hosting.

Solution

Vividsky migrated all services to a private cloud in London and replicated the services to a secondary location, lowering considerably the risks associated with a disaster hitting one location. The customer has full access to the datacentre and their equipment, while Vividsky manages everything on their behalf.

Result

We increased availability of systems by splitting the services across multiple locations and the move to private cloud has saved costs by no longer needing a dedicated IT staff managing the servers. Vividsky manage all services and the customer benefits from a large team of engineers.
