THE CHALLENGE

Enlisted by Freddy’s, ISG was tasked with transitioning the client’s infrastructure to a more secure and flexible system. The initial findings highlighted a few opportunities:

  • Evaluated the health of the client’s network security to find at risk data. If a server were to fail under the original network system, data would have been lost and unrecoverable.
  • Discovered the company was poised for growth, but infrastructure was unable to keep up with needs and goals.
  • Determined the transition to the new network had to take place outside of business hours.

 

THE SOLUTION

  • Utilized leading backup solution to migrate the company’s data to the cloud
  • Migrated an aging small business server to a updated and upgraded exchange server
  • Provided an internal SQL consultation
  • Deployed Cisco Meraki Technology across locations

 

RESULTS

Freddy’s is now ready for tremendous future growth with the flexibility and security of ISG’s cloud solution with our straightforward approach to implementation and willingness to execute outside of business hours, ensuring both client satisfaction and business success.
