New IT provider

The Zynstra solution was superior and around 30% cheaper than a traditional server solution, with the added benefit of cost being spread over 3 years. This allowed us to deploy our capital more effectively into the business, investing in new desktop equipment, while simultaneously refreshing our server infrastructure.

Case Study

Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 on 14th July 2015. With no updates or patches being released to combat security threats, many organizations like Joe Public were at risk if they continued to run this operating system. Having researched the market Joe Public identified Zynstra’s Cloud Managed Server Appliances as a highly efficient and cost effective alternative to traditional server environments. The Hybrid IT as a Service solution allows Joe Public to benefit from Zynstra’s ‘keep current’ technology, eradicating the need for day to day server maintenance and eliminating the need for future IT refreshes, all for a simple monthly fee.

Why Zynstra

END OF LIFE TECHNOLOGY

As our Windows Server 2003 approached end of life we were increasingly having to battle with slow, unreliable IT and fix an increasing number of faults.

FUTURE PROOF IT

As a young business we wanted cost effective future proof IT that supported our business without the need for excessive IT resource.

INADEQUATE DISASTER RECOVERY

Prior to Zynstra in the event of a disaster the expectation was a 60 minute recovery time. In reality it was 24 to 36 hours and the actual requirements were ill-defined.

SECURE, RELIABLE, ACCESSIBLE FUTURE PROOF IT

Zynstra’s unique automated service means that we have access to up to date secure, reliable IT that is seamlessly patched and updated. We also benefit from faster response times and quick up time in the event of any issues.

COMPLETE PEACE OF MIND

We receive full office support under an agreed SLA with our certified Zynstra partner, Lanmark. Should we have any technical issues they are dealt with as part of our fixed monthly fee. And if we outgrow the server then it is replaced with a new one. The server is monitored and managed by Lanmark in conjunction with Zynstra so we don’t have to worry, it just works.

PREDICTABLE MONTHLY COSTS

We lease the use of a server which means no upfront cost and at the end of the contract we can update our technology without any capital outlay. Monthly fees are fixed per user so as the company grows we can take advantage of knowing in advance what our IT costs will be.
