PROBLEM

Before introducing StarWind HyperConverged Appliance (HCA) into its IT infrastructure, Cork Supply USA had physical servers with a couple of virtual servers running non-critical roles hosted from a standalone Hyper-V host. Since physical servers were end-of-life, the company was looking for an upgraded enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that would provide simplicity and flexibility in management and bring redundancy to data processing. Cork Supply USA sought to free up space from the bulk of hardware resources as well. On top of that, the new solution for the IT environment was to be cost-saving without breaking the company’s budget.

SOLUTION

Hyperconvergence and StarWind HCA made the eye of Cork Supply USA because of little complexity and needed functionality. StarWind HCA allowed the company to replace existing outdated servers and get just one software-defined hyperconverged platform with the required hardware specs and the ability to cluster services. Thanks to StarWind HCA, Cork Supply USA got the all-rolled-into-one solution: ERP requirements, redundancy, reduced downtime, and peace of mind. From now on, the company’s IT infrastructure has a centrally managed structure where virtual machines can be easily deployed and managed. Moreover, StarWind HCA provided Cork Supply USA with an ability to reduce physical infrastructure and get much-needed space for business growth and implementation of new business ventures, all at a very attractive price. The company is also very satisfied with HCA ProActive Premium Support that made the setup and design process as easy as ABC.
