The RDS had a diverse range of systems in place. The existing IT infrastructure required updating which necessitated either further hardware investment or the implementation of a private cloud and virtual desktop solution.
Trilogy Technologies implemented a virtualized solution including a fully redundant virtual private cloud infrastructure and provision of managed services. The core infrastructure included an upgrade of the Active Directory & MS Exchange environments as well as an overhaul of the existing network infrastructure along with a backup solution. Concerns around an ageing desktop fleet were addressed by implementing a virtual desktop environment. The benefits from a virtual desktop environment include simplified management, enhanced security and recoverability.
The solution enables the organisation to plan maintenance and upgrades with minimal impact on business productivity. Following the introduction of VMWare, the RDS has begun upgrading their various business systems which has increased efficiency. They are now confident that their ICT infrastructure is stable and capable of catering for these improvements. The RDS can now recover files quickly at critical moments and have implemented a disaster recovery solution to ensure business continuity.
