Managed IT services firm Octavian IT has won a new server installation contract with one of the UK’s foremost manufacturers of bespoke point of sale solutions.
Octavian IT has won the £30,000 contract with fellow Nottingham-based company Lighthouse Display, which manufactures unique POS products such as 3D display units, specialist clip-strips and hang tabs and has worked with big-name brands including Wilkinson Sword, Nestle and Duracell.
The five-figure contract will see Octavian IT replace all of Lighthouse Display’s servers, storage, disaster recovery, cyber security, licensing and remote access technology. The IT specialists will also make Lighthouse’s existing IT environment, which is over eight years old, more efficient by tightening security and increasing performance – a process which will involve the consolidation of the manufacturer’s existing 22 servers to just eight using modern Hyper-Visor and virtualisation technologies and hardware. read more here
