Working with a partner like COAL IT enabled us to design and implement a best of breed solution, tailor made to suite our server consolidation project requirements.  With their expert experience in this field, we were able to deliver a consolidation ratio of 10:1 for our server farm. System performance, monitoring capabilities and dramatically reduced new server provisioning times were also key to the successfully delivery of the project. All of these aspects exceeded our expectation during both the testing phase and the successful roll out of the solution.  COAL IT’s flexible attitude and willingness to go the extra mile when required, made the difference between us choosing them over one of their competitors to be our preferred partner on this project.
